1. Start by opening a window just enough to get a very slight breeze. This will help dispel any smoke build up and will allow negative energy to leave your space.
2. Generally you should not need to untie the string from your sage for it to burn well, but if you have trouble, pulling it apart may help it burn better.
3. Begin by lighting your smudge stick for about 15-30 seconds while holding the flame to the tip of your smudge stick. Rotate it slowly to generate a nice smoldering ember.
4. When smudging, start in any room or area furthest from the exit. Move the smoke around the room from high to low, side to side, while making your way to the exit.
