Inspiring Conversations with Simona Popovic Good.Witch of Good.Witch.Santa.Monica

Today we’d like to introduce you to Simona Popovic Good.Witch.

Simona, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Good.Witch.Santa.Monica started in my little urban garden in mid-city of Santa Monica. Working with nature and plants runs in my family since old times. Since cleansing your soul and your spiritual space is very important part of everyday life and since sage bundles dominate on our markets, I decided to start something little different, more sustainable and more nature friendly. White sage is over harvested in past decades which puts this sacred plant on list for endangered plants. That is totally opposite from intentional use of this sacred plant. So I created smudging bundles without white sage or with using just a little bit of only sustainably harvested plants from my garden and local farmers. Every bundle I made is made with love and blessings through the entire process (growing, harvesting and making) and thats why they really have that spiritual value that they are made for.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
To be honest, it was smooth because when you do something you really love and enjoy even obstacles on your way feel like a part of a game.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Good.Witch.Santa.Monica smudgesticks are organic, sustainable and made with love and blessings through entire process which gives them spiritual value every cleansing bundle needs to have. Every plant in our bundle is harvested with blessings and care for nature because we look at the nature as our partner, not as a source. Because of that our bundles are unique and never mass produced so they can be find only in small batches. Choice of plants used in them depends of your intentions, but which ever you choose, well provide you with information how to use it in your cleansing ritual so you can use full potential of this sacred medicine.

We love surprises, fun facts and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
That you don’t need to use only white sage for cleansing, you can cleanse your space with any plants and that all is made and dried in my little house 🙂
