White sage is a sacred herb traditionally used by the native Americans in their many rituals. Recognised for its ability to both cleanse and purify, indigenous people often use a process known as ‘smudging’ to call upon the spirits of the sacred plants to remove any negative energies that may be present during their ceremonies. White sage has a lovely sweet aroma and is known for its many healing properties.
Often seen as a symbol of purity, this wonderful herb is used by many nowadays to clean the home and body of unwanted energies, and restore balance and equilibrium within the spaces that have been treated. It is also considered a great tool for cleansing a person’s aura of any unwanted emotional baggage that may be draining their energy.
