Cedar is first and foremost a smudge of protection. It is often used to cleanse a home when first moving in, inviting unwanted spirits to leave and protecting a person, place or object from unwanted influences. The smoke of burning cedar is said to attract the good spirits and eliminate negative energies.
The smudge smoke is made by laying dried cedar leaves on smouldering coals, or by lighting dried cedar in an earthenware bowl or large shell.
