Salvia, derived from the latin word meaning “to heal,” offers effects that are as powerful as they are purifying. Knowledge of white sage’s healing powers can be traced throughout time, permeating the cultures of the Babylonians, Greeks, Chinese and a variety of Native North and South American tribes, who continue to use it in rituals today.
Bio Alchemy Olfactive’s high quality, organically cultivated white sage has a warm, balsamic-herbaceous aroma that is soft, smooth, and clean. Its white-gray leaves are covered in hairs that trigger oil glands when rubbed or warmed, releasing volatile aromatic compounds into the air. Smudging sage is a common practice for cleansing the energy of spaces and even people. Renowned for its powers of purification, the smoke of burning sage has been revealed in recent studies to reduce bacteria levels and release negative ions in a space and is commonly used to improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety, and strengthen intuition.
Bio Alchemy Olfactive’s loose white sage leaves are consciously cultivated in Southern California using organic practices aimed at conserving wild sage populations. Planted from local wild seeds that bear the innate properties of the unmodified plant and are harvested at the mature age of three, each leaf is carefully removed by hand in our lab from dried bouquets of hand-harvested stalks. We are proud to provide a sustainable means to burn and enjoy the treasures of white sage.
Smudge White Sage Leaves.
Hold one leaf by the stem, and carefully light the tip. Allow the flame to burn only momentarily before extinguishing, allowing smoke to emit from the Sage leaf as you move through the space you intend to anoint. When finished simply place the leaf in a heat-resistant container to cool.
