Are there negative health effects to smudging ceremonies?
A nice lady I met the other day said she smudges herself daily (at least with sage if not other herbs) ceremonially, she seemed very interested with Native American culture.
I’ve heard that breathing in any kind of smoke is bad for your lungs, but is that true? And if so to what extent?
Is there a safe way to practice smudging?
