Most of us probably became familiar with the use of a white sage "smudge" wand as our first foray into clearing bad energy in a space. I know that was my first energetic hygiene tool way back when. (I think I grabbed in the same time frame I was purchasing spell books from Barnes & Noble.) It is so popular that the word sage his somehow become synonymous with smoke clearing as if there are no other items available. While I am grateful for the introduction, I know fifteen years later, that it is not a fix all item. (And those bookstore spells - just, nope.) When we gather new information we should act on it. Know better, do better.
