What is a Smudging Pot (Charcoal Soapstone Burner)?

A smudging pot, specifically a charcoal soapstone burner, is a specialized vessel utilized in traditional smudging rituals, which have roots in Native American practices. These rituals are known to purify a person or a space, infusing them with positive energy.

Made from heat-resistant materials such as clay or ceramic, a smudging pot can hold various smudging materials like sage, cedar, or sweetgrass that are ignited as part of the ritual. They are sometimes adorned with symbolic designs, adding a personal touch to your ritual practices.

In addition to being a vessel for burning smudge sticks or loose herbs, it can also hold charcoal tablets, which are used to burn the herbs evenly. Traditionally, the pot is filled with sand or ash, which serves to absorb the heat and safeguard the pot's base from direct exposure to the burning elements.
