Curanderas are notorious for using unconventional techniques to cure just about everything, even those shady haters. This is how they do it…
Hierbas are their go-to remedy.
Herbs are rubbed up and down the body to help cure illnesses…
Or cleanse you of evil vibes your enemies send you.
Like all women, curanderas also love shiny rocks.
They turn to gemstones to cleanse spirits. They EVEN claim to know how to exterminate bad relationships.
They spark scented incense.
Which is used to cleanse your aura and your surroundings.
They use the power of touch.
They use their magic touch to relieve tension, bad vibes, and realign your chakras.
A little egg rubbing never hurt anyone…
Yesterday, I found myself with my pregnant cousin and friends in the backroom of a stall at Mercado De Sonora getting a "limpia" from a curandera #magic #ritual #clean #limpia #curandera #spiritual #religion #healer #mercadosonora #mexicocity #mexico #cdmx #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #instatravel #video #instavideo #instavid #videooftheday
That’s how they really get down. Eggs are considered a symbolism of life. As gross as it sounds, they rub eggs around your body to absorb all negative energy and illnesses.
Curanderos also use sound as a form of healing.
Like the beating of drums or the sound created by rattles.
Oh, and they love the use of fire.
You know, to cure things like too much ear wax.
