Understanding Eastern Red Cedar: Eastern Red Cedar, scientifically known as Juniperus virginiana, is a beautiful evergreen tree native to North America. It is revered for its aromatic wood and leaves, which have been used for centuries for their healing and cleansing properties. This sacred herb holds deep spiritual significance in various cultures and is believed to possess the power to ward off negative energies, purify the air, and promote emotional well-being.

Methods of Incorporating Eastern Red Cedar into Space Cleansing:
- Smudging: Smudging is a popular method of space cleansing using smoke from sacred herbs. To smudge with Eastern Red Cedar, gather a bundle of dried cedar leaves or use a cedar smudge stick. Light the end of the bundle until it starts to smolder, then gently blow out the flame, allowing the smoke to waft throughout your space. Focus on areas with stagnant energy or negative vibes, such as corners, doorways, or windows. Adding in a prayer or poem can be beneficial during this time.
- Essential Oil Diffusion: Another way to enjoy the benefits of Eastern Red Cedar is by using its essential oil. Add a few drops of the oil to a diffuser and let the gentle aroma permeate your space. This method is especially useful for those who prefer a more subtle and continuous release of the benefits like during meditation or yoga practice.
- Smudge Spray, for travel or those sensitive to smoke one may consider making a smudge spray. My recipe can be found here.
