Smudge stick safety
- Keep the smoke load to a minimum.
- Keep away from alarms.
- Keep moving while smudging at a steady pace.
- Best not to stand in one place for a while as the smoke rises and accumulates and could set the alarm off.
Make sure your smudge stick is completely extinguished. You can do this by dabbing the lit end into a small bowl of ash or sand.
Check the end closely to make sure there are no more embers burning. Once it’s completely put out, store it in a safe, dry place out of the sun.
