A smudging pot is a vessel that is used in smudging rituals, which are a traditional Native American practice used to purify a space or person. The pot is typically made of a heat-resistant material, such as clay or ceramic, and is used to hold smudging herbs or materials, such as sage, cedar, or sweetgrass, that are burned as part of the ritual.
The smudging pot can be used to hold burning smudge sticks, loose herbs, or charcoal tablets that are used to burn the herbs. The pot is typically filled with sand or ash to help absorb the heat and protect the bottom of the pot from direct contact with the burning materials.
Smudging pots can come in various shapes and sizes, and may also be decorated with symbols or designs that are meaningful to the person using them. They can be used in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, or other sacred spaces, and are typically used to create a sense of peace and balance, as well as to remove negative energy from a space or person.
A Smudging Pot (Charcoal Soapstone Burner) is designed to hold a piece of charcoal that is used to burn incense or other aromatic substances, such as resins, herbs, or essential oils. The charcoal is lit with a lighter or match and then placed in the burner, which is often filled with sand or ash to help absorb the heat and protect the bottom of the burner.
Once the charcoal is lit and the burner is filled with sand or ash, the aromatic substances can be placed on top of the charcoal. As the substance heats up, it releases a fragrant smoke that is believed to have various spiritual or therapeutic benefits, such as purifying the air, promoting relaxation, or enhancing meditation.
