This past year at Smudge, we have enjoyed highlighting healers from all different walks of life and practices. At Smudge Wellness, we believe that a rising tide lifts all boats and love shining a spotlight on other lights in the Spiritual Wellness Space. We highlighted a lot of really great healers this year throughout different holidays and seasons and are excited to celebrate them some more this holiday season. Please check them out – like, follow, subscribe, and shop their merch and their services. Give the gift of spiritual wellness this season by sharing the love with these healers.
