HOW SMUDGE BECAME LIQUID
BY KANDIS TWA
I have a girlfriend who owns an alternative healing clinic. One day over lunch she told me that she really needed something to help her practitioners energetically reset their rooms between patients.
Lots of folks burn sage because it does an amazing job of cleaning and clearing negative energies, but the smell is not universally appealing. Plus you run the risk of triggering the buildings sprinkler system with the smoke!
Ideally you’d have something that combines the clearing and elevating of sage, with something that can ground and centre. Those in the world of energetic healing and intuitive work understand that being clear and centred (also called grounded) is vital for receiving clear communication, inspiration and direction.
This chat over lunch had me thinking about combining various botanicals to achieve this special combination. Clear and focused, yet grounded and elevated at the same time. It was a bit of challenge, I’ll admit—sort of like striking that perfect balance of dressed, but not over dressed, in an I-just-threw-this-outfit-on-and-still-look-spectacular kind of way.
Well, I really nailed it, and it feels like the little black dress. Appropriate for all occasions, makes you feel great, and so basic you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
There are so many ways to use this spray, and the stories we hear about how people use it are wonderful—even if you aren’t working in an alternative healing clinic.
The best use of this spray is wherever you want to clear or elevate energy—and where wouldn’t you want to do that? My favourite use is for our office. Spray your chair and around your desk to calm, clear and elevate. How about this? Spray the inside of your children’s shoes before they go to school, so that they’re grounded in their bodies and ready to pay attention. Spray yourself after yoga practice to deepen your savasana. Spray your bed down in a hotel room, so that you aren’t experiencing any residual energy from the previous guest—same goes for an airplane seat, bus seat, or any other shared spaces.
Oh, and by the way, it smells lovely, so people will thank you for that too. Feel good, and smell good—why not?!
