MAGICAL SACRED WHITE SAGE – VERY RARE! BRAND NEW STOCKS! NOT JUST FOR SMUDGING! USED TO MAKE SOOTHING TEAS, OILS, THE SCENT IS PURE DELIGHT! ANTIMICROBIAL – CLEANS THE ROOM OF FLU PARTICLES, ETC.

I want to emphasize that this is a medicinal herb for everyone, and it’s not just for new agers and its benefits were put on Earth for all to utilize. Sage is just like every other herbal remedy you’ve heard of.

You can take herbs as a dietary supplement (think ginger, echinacea or dandelion) – you can drink tea from the plant (think chamomile or coffee), or you can apply a herb as a compress (think of calendula). You can distil plants and inhale their essential oils, think of lavender or peppermint. It’s all medicine. And you can do them all with White Sage!

The most-used types of sage have antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay. White sage (Salvia apiana) is also antimicrobial. And both have been shown to repel insects.

Though scientifically unproven, burning sage is thought to release negative ions. This is said to help neutralize positive ions. Common positive ions are allergens like: pet hair, pollution, dust, mould.

Here are five benefits of white sage:

Treats sinus infections

You can inhale the aroma given off a burning white sage bundle for a few minutes, or you can drink it as a tea. However you do it, it’s the compound called ‘eucalyptol’ also known as 1,8-cineole that when inhaled, reduces painful sinus inflammation. It may kill the associated pathogens too! That’s pretty amazing considering the side effects of prescribed antibiotics and antihistamines.

Calms a sore throat

Sage leaf tea is a proven strategy for alleviating a sore throat, at least according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Plant Guide. Sage tea as you know will reduce mucous secretions of the sinuses, throat, and lungs.

Relieves menstrual pain

White sage tea might provide relief from menstrual period cramps and possibly some symptoms of menopause like sweating and hot flashes. This benefit occurs because sage contains phytoestrogens, which are plant-derived estrogens.

White sage is a strong player in fighting infection. A gargle made from the tea chases off throat infections, is a good wound wash and helps reduce inflammation that often goes along with infection, according to Las Cruces herbalist Deborah Brandt.

Provides cleansing energy

Sage is kind of like an eraser, it will help remove the day’s burdens and ease emotional suffering. It may help with mild anxiety or depression. Smudging is the quickest way because when you inhale, the compounds go straight to your bloodstream and brain.

Just FYI, the practice of burning herbs (aka smudging) is a non-religious one. You’re just burning plant leaves rather than swallowing the supplement. If you’d like, you can certainly pray while you burn the medicine.

Cleans the air

Burning the embers of sage (aka smudging) in a room is helpful if someone is sick. My tip is designed to clean a room where someone has been coughing or sneezing from pneumonia, or influenza for example – and you desire to clear the air space of these germs so you don’t catch it too.

WHITE SAGE HAS A MILLION USES!

White Sage (Salvia apiana) is a plant native to high desert ecosystems and grows prevalently in California and in the Mountain West. For hundreds of years, White Sage has been considered a sacred, cleansing, purifying, and protective plant.

The leaves of the plant are a whitish-green, and if you rub the fresh leaves between your thumb and forefinger, a refreshing, cleansing scent is released. Native Americans started the tradition of using White Sage, also known as Sacred Sage, to release lingering energies. White Sage has been used in ceremonies to seek blessings of health and prosperity, release spirits, encourage protection.

White Sage contains a toxic compound called thujone. Using Sage internally is said to be safe, however, it is suggested to not ingest large amounts of the herb or tea.
