Whether you prefer calling it saging or smudging, the ritual of cleansing negative spaces has gained more attention in social media in the last year. It must be the uncertainties of the pandemic or the overall negativity brought about by humanity.
A smudge stick is a bundle of dried herbs bound together by twine and is burned to ward off negative energy or cleanse a space. While smudging is considered a sacred practice for many Native American and indigenous cultures, we can also trace this practice to Filipino folk magic and footwork.
