Interesting White Sage Essential Oil Information
Salvia apiana, or white sage, is the main component in the smudge sticks used many Native American traditions. Some Native American peoples used white sage to treat coughs and colds, or burned white sage in sweat lodges as a general tonic and fever reducer. The burning of white sage leaves is a long-standing tradition in ritual purification, but it 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. As a tisane, the plant is used medicinally to decrease sweating, salivation and mucous secretions in the sinuses, throat and lungs. Cold tea is often used as a stomach tonic, while tepid tea is employed to soothe a sore throat.
White sage is believed to not only clear negative energy or evil spirits, but also to encourage positive energy. 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 in purification ceremonies, a ritual which has been broadly adopted as a modern practice by people all over the world.
