What is a Smudging Feather Fan?
A smudging feather fan is made from natural feathers, leather and crystals. These are often also called as ceremonial fans, which are used during various types of ceremonies.
Some believe that the feather represents the ‘Bird People’ who are close to the creator hence it is appropriate to send on your intentions or prayers through the smoke using the fan.
How to use a Smudging Feather Fan?
Before you start smudging anything, you must know that in ancient ceremonial practice, it is known that one should purify themselves before conducting a smudging for anyone or anything else.
This simply means that you can smudge yourself before proceeding to smudge other people or items with your smudging fan.
To begin, you can be barefooted as you need to connect to the ground as the bottom of the feet walks on mother earth.
Smudge yourself from foot to head and set a positive or good intention when doing so. One must not be angry, frustrated or thinking a million things when smudging.
End by disposing of the ash outside in a garden or open area as during the smudging process, the ash represents the impurities collected. This is known as giving back to the earth.
At the end of the day, different people, cultures or healers will have different versions of how to smudge and what are the practices to follow. It is up to you to decide on which you feel comfortable with.
When to Smudge?
There are various theories and practices on when should you smudge, and below are some general examples given;
- After healing work
- After having arguments
- After you have had visitors over
- If you are depressed or sad
- If you are not feeling well
- If you had a really bad day at work or home

What is the best time to smudge?
This is a very common question that is often asked by our customers, and to be honest, there is no set time. However, we feel that the first thing in the morning is the best time as it is when your mind is free and peaceful.
We pass this knowledge on to our customers and again, it is entirely up to you when you feel is the best time. It could be in the morning, or when everyone is out of the hour, or even just before bedtime.
What else does smudging help with?
Apart from the common internet answer to cleansing away negative energies, spirits or bad juju, smudging also helps to disinfect the air in your space.
Smudging helps to rid of bad or old energies left behind on antiques or old items that you may have bought or received from friends or family members.
There are also people who believe that by smudging their laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet, it helps them to perform better at work and even close business deals.
Some even go to the extent of smudging inside their car, to cleanse any negative influences that may have been trapped inside.
At the end of the day, it really does not matter what you smudge as long as you feel that you want to do it, then just go ahead.
Can I smudge every day?
It is totally up to you, and there are no set rules on when you should smudge. As long as you feel the need to do so, then please go ahead.
A common practice is to smudge once or twice a week, but depending on the person, I have heard that there are people who smudge daily because they feel good about it.
So, if you feel good smudging daily or twice a day, then by all means go ahead. There is nothing wrong with doing this daily.
