The Perfect Housewarming Gift & How to #SmudgethatSh*t

My family and I have recently moved into a new home, and first on my to-do list was a cleansing ritual.

Now, I know, despite how trendy sage has become on Insta, you may be hesitant, or perhaps you just have no idea how one goes about performing a cleansing.
