Smudge sticks were traditionally used by Gabrielinos to create a sacred space, purify people and places. The smudge sticks usually consisted of white sage and dried herbs which were lit and then allowed to smoulder so smoke could rise and permeate an area for a ritual or ceremony. A feather or just the waving of a hand would direct the smoke. Smudging was a popular method among Shamans for clearing space and preparing an area for their work.
