White Sage Essential Oil

Sage is a plant that many Native Americans believe was put on the Earth as a healing medicine, a benevolent plant spirit. Medicine men and women traditionally burn Sage, and/or other herbs, while calling on the aid of the Spirit of the plant to help them in whatever healing or cleansing is taking place. There are many references to Sage producing sacred visions in ceremonial settings. However, prayer, spiritual wisdom, and a strong relationship with the Sage plant are all necessary to gain access into the higher wisdom of this sacred herb.
This profound and powerful plant has been used to cleanse sacred space, remove malevolent spirits and negative energies, and for spiritual and energetic protection for ages. Its smoke is also traditionally used to cleanse spiritual tools, altars, and holy spaces before, during, or after sacred rites and rituals to “keep things clean”. In all respects, I like to refer to Sage as a “spiritual janitor”, a very important job, keeping energies tidy and in a good way.
The burning of White Sage for cleansing and purification has become widespread in the past few decades in America as well as other parts of the world. When ‘adopting’ another cultures spiritual ways, it is always good to hold a strong sense of integrity and to understand, honor and respect its original traditions.
