The Healing Power of Smudging by Rodika Tchi is such an awesome book! I honestly was curious how to smudge after hearing about it from online and seeing it done on TV shows. It first made me think of it as just a natural way to add a lovely scent to the home, but I never thought of it being a way to cleanse it and add additional health benefits as well.
The best thing about the book is that it covers so much information about smudging and how to actually make your own to use. When I first read I can make my own, I was just excited to continue reading and learn more so I can begin smudging. What also really caught my attention is that it's got awesome photos of the smudge sticks, like a bundle of herbs and plants tied together. The roots are even mentioned and how it was used by the Native Americans. Plus, the big thing that I always like to know is that I can use it to aid in healing or helping in some way.
In the beginning, I really just thought of smudging as a natural deodorizer or used by those who use natural medicine to aid in healing. However, this book opens my eyes to all of its possibilities. There really is more to smudging than just it's scent, but it's purpose in daily rituals and cleansing out the negativity in each room. Plus, the book mentions how it can be used similarly to incenses or others that serve a similar purpose, and the smells and smoke that fills the room is just a wonderful way to change one's feelings and mood, almost like aromatherapy.
Finally, I feel that this book on smudging is very helpful to live every day feeling great from start to end while removing the negativity that was left from the day or days before. That to me would be wonderful, plus once rid of the bad stuff, it's like getting a new start every day. Therefore, if anyone is looking for a great book on smudging, how to get started, what it's all about and how to make your own, well this is the book to own!
