Please note there a few things in this video I would like to comment on. Please read this before using this method.

This is a good video to explain the smudging ritual 

Performing a sage cleansing ritual to drive off negative energy is not difficult. You just have to prepare a few ingredients and understand procedure. You will need:
  • A white sage smudge stick.
  • A ceramic bowl or large candle holder.
  • Matches.
  • Native music (if desired).
Before beginning, mentally and physically distract yourself until you are able to concentrate on the smudging process.
  • De-clutter the space and make a peaceful environment in the room by switching off all the electronic gadgets.
  • Take several deep breaths and bring your mind to a relaxed and positive state.
Once you have reached a positive frame of mind, prepare the sage for burning.
  • If you are using loose sticks of white sage, place a handful in the bowl or candle holder.
  • Close your eyes and breathe deeply.
  • Light the end of the sage stick. Hold it in upward position and say your prayers, chants, or requests for positive energy and to cast out of any negativity.
  • Visualize a bright light within yourself that will provide a shield against dark forces and negative energy.
  • Offer the smoke of the sage smudge in all the directions of the house. Slowly carry the smudge around the entire room to make sure smoke reaches every corner.
  • Walk through the house, around the edges of the walls, and into corners of each room including bathrooms and closets. Make sure to handle the bowl safely as you get close to clothes or curtains.
  • You can also use a large feather to fan the smoke into distant areas of your house.
  • Throughout the ritual, focus on positive energy and recite your prayers and chants.
  • Once you have completed the spiritual cleansing process of the entire home, extinguish the remaining sage bundle and you can save it for future use.

This is the manufacture process of traditional Bhutanese incense. I am working to bring this line to the USA but it is taking awhile.
