Deep rooted in tradition worldwide, sage is a plant that you want access to at all times. Used in healing, sage has been used for centuries. We grow it indoors and out & use it daily in our home.
Sage is an air purifier & natural air freshener. It neutralizes positive ions by releasing negative ions into the atmosphere, creating balance. A build up of positive ions due to factors such as stress & tension causes energy to be thick, heavy & stagnant. By neutralizing the energy, one will feel lighter & calm.
Physically beneficial, sage relieves headaches & sore throats, reduces pain & inflammation & supports digestive health. Sage is known to aid in protection from bacterial & viral infections.
Sage improves mental health by boosting energy, mood, & focus. Cognitive brain function can improve with the use of sage & it is used often to aid in memory retention. Benefits also include improvement with sleep & increase in alertness & even reduced depression symptoms.
Cultural tradition & practices utilize sage to heal, protect & increase wisdom & intuition. Ritually, sage is used to clear bad experiences & past traumas, as well as clearing negative energies from others. We use sage daily in our home.
Grab some dried sage & a heat resistant glass bowl. You can either burn single leaves or a bundle. Open a window or door. State intention! This is a ritual that must be respected & done with positive intentions. Your intentions may be to cleanse your space or clear & bless your energy. Whatever you intend, state it, feel it. Light your sage, blow out the flames & let the smoke flow. We smudge every room & ourselves. Try it. I am positive that you will feel the air shift.
