The bundle is ignited and allowed to burn for a short time. The flame is never blown out and is left to smolder in a non-flammable container, e.g. in a shell, plate or bowl. You can disperse the smoke from the exhauster around the room with your hand or a feather. We go through the room in a clockwise direction with the smoking bundle. We go through the entire space in this way and at the same time we can recite cleansing prayers such as: I cleanse this space of all foreign and negative energies, I ask for purification and peace in my space. We can place the bundles in the corners of the room, but not completely against the walls, so that our plasters or other materials do not smoke. After the ritual, you can cut off the smoldering end and use the rest of the bundle the next time, or simply leave it to smolder on a non-flammable surface.
