Smokeless Cleansing or Purification Rituals for Your Home

Have you ever entered a room or house and suddenly felt like you were moving through pea soup? Maybe you’ve noticed the air and energy become so heavy and stifling that it’s hard to move or breathe? If you have, then you know what an uncleansed space can feel like. Just as our clothes can get dirty and the corners of our homes can get taken over by dust bunnies, so too can our personal spaces accumulate negative energy. When that happens, these areas might require a little cleaning to get back to normal.

Most people have heard of smudging, in which you burn things like white sage or palo santo and spread the smoke in your home, car, business, or other applicable location. However, some people don’t like the smell of burning herbs, or there might be someone in the household that’s allergic. Furthermore, if you have pets, you need to be especially careful with what you burn. As such, smudging isn’t an option for everyone. Luckily, while smudging is one popular technique, it certainly isn’t the only way to dispel toxic energy.

Saltwater Spritz

This is one popular way to cleanse a space, as it is quick and easy. Furthermore, it saves you from having to worry about lingering smells. Simply put some salt (table salt is fine) into a spritz bottle, then add some water. Salt, either alone or mixed with water, can both cleanse a space and charge you up with new, clean energy. As far as purification rituals go, it’s a two-for-one special.


Whether you are drawn to instrumental music, chimes, or singing bowls, music can change the energy of a space very quickly. Match your musical choice with the mood you’re trying to evoke and let it soar. Tools like bells and singing bowls can also make this process a meditative one. Be aware that lyrics are important. If a song has a happy beat but the lyrics are negative, you’re sabotaging your own efforts. When practicing purification rituals, it’s important to remember that all the parts need to work together. Otherwise, they may actually end up working against both each other and you.


Yup, not only does sweeping clean your home the traditional way, but if you do it right, it can also cleanse your space metaphysically! Just make sure that you’re moving the broom counterclockwise as you sweep the dust, dirt, and negative energy right out the door. You can even try augmenting this ritual by sprinkling some salt on your floors before you start. In truth, you can add some sweeping to any of the other purification rituals to make it particularly powerful.


“Let the sunshine in!” The sun has a lot of power, and its ability to cleanse toxic spaces and provide uplifting energy is undeniable. UV radiation kills bacteria and viruses, and it can remove unwanted energy by raising a space’s or object’s vibration. If a specific item cannot handle direct sunlight, you can also use moonlight.

Crystal Grid

Crystal grids can be used for a variety of purposes, including cleansing and purification rituals. Simply create a grid using cleansing crystals like black tourmaline, smoky quartz, nuummite, amethyst, citrine, labradorite, and selenite. You can create a pattern that speaks to you, or you can use sacred geometry. Remember to charge each of the crystals with your intent, then place the grid in the space you want cleansed. You may find it helpful to make your grid on a platter and then place a dome over the crystals so that they don’t collect dust (and so any pets can’t play with the stones).

Smudge Spray

Similar to the saltwater spritz above, this option includes adding various herbs and/or essential oils to water in a spray bottle. Lavender, clary sage, rosemary, bay, chamomile, pine, and peppermint are all excellent choices. A bit of lemongrass essential oil may also be helpful if you’d like an added kick.

Visualization and Invocation

Get in a meditative state, then invoke your version of Divine Intelligence (angels or deities) and let it work through you to cleanse the space of negativity and toxicity. Try reciting a mantra like, “I clear this space of any negative energy. In its place, bring positivity and light.”

Consider Adopting Smokeless Cleansing and Purification Rituals

As you can see, there are many alternatives to smudging that you can incorporate into your daily or monthly practice. In fact, it’s important to be open to options other than palo santo and white sage, as there are actually concerns about overharvesting those plants.  However, for all of these cleansing and purification rituals, remember that the most important thing is to make sure that you’re in the right frame of mind. Your intention is just as important as the tool you use.
