Cabinet of Curiosities
This is white sage. Considered by many as one of the essential medicinal plants, we delve into the universe of White Sage and its main properties and benefits.
White Sage is one of the most widely used medicinal plants in the world of natural medicine, since it maintains all kinds of benefits and no contraindications. Its cleansing and purifying power is enormous. In fact, in the Emporium of the Enchanted Forest we use it a lot, (we even have White Sage incense, for its beneficial properties and its very special aroma.)
Its scientific name is Salvia Apiana and it grows wild in the southwestern United States, mainly in California and northwestern Mexico. Its size can reach more than a meter in height and its leaves are whitish with very particular bluish tones.
Most of the medicinal properties of White Sage are in its leaves, which absorb the energy of the Sun producing a large number of essential oils that aromatize the plant.
When we burn its leaves, they give off a very pleasant aroma, providing a feeling of well-being, peace and good energy.
But it also has antimicrobial properties. This means they keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay. Burning sage has been found to kill up to 94% of airborne bacteria in a space and disinfect the air.
The use of White Sage incense is especially useful in times of great change in our lives, when we may end up intoxicated by stagnant energies or obsolete negative thought patterns.
Salvia has the power to eliminate these vibrations, purifying our energy fields and bringing sufficient clarity and strength to continue steadfast in our walk.
In short, for us it is a very powerful plant for purification, protection and renewal at all levels.
From the Emporium of the Enchanted Forest we recommend that you try it, and tell us about your experience. We are very pleased to be able to bring a quality White Sage and to feel its blessings.
