Interesting White Sage Essential Oil Information
Salvia apiana, or white sage, is the main component in the smudge sticks used by many Native American traditions. Some Native American peoples burned white sage in sweat lodges for purification. The burning of white sage leaves is also used to fumigate a house or dwelling after a contagion and to purify the air during and after illness. In plant form, Native Americans use white sage seeds to make flour and porridge. The leaves are used as a flavoring in cooking, or are eaten or smoked as a remedy for colds. White sage leaves are also used in shampoos and dyes and are a natural hair straightener. Diffuse white sage whenever negative energy needs to be cleared and positive energy needs to be invited into a space. This energetic transformation is said to be released from the plant by the burning of the leaves, which are typically bundled into a wand or smudge stick. Today, many Native Americans use the stems and leaves for smudging, a ritual which has been broadly adopted as a modern practice by people all over the world.
