White Sage 31/08/2021

White sage, Latin Salvia apiana, is a perennial shrubby growing to a height of 1 meter. Its home is in Central America, especially Mexico. It is one of the most sacred herbs on the planet, traditionally used for purification and protective rituals. Sage is known to drive away negative energies and evil spirits, and in turn promotes strong positive energies.

HISTORY

The original inhabitants of Central America have used white sage since time immemorial in prayer, rituals and the treatment of various diseases. Sage was understood as an intelligent being, in the burning of which the healer came into contact with its energy and connected to the intelligence of the entire planet Earth, where he drew insights and inspiration. In the 20th century, with the rise of the New Age movement, the ritual use of sage, along with other healing practices, became a widespread phenomenon worldwide.
