I wanted to connect with you today about the incredible power of Sage. This herb is an incredible purifier and I recommend several different uses for it. If you have potent ways to utilize this medicine please do share in the comments below.
Lately I have been listening to the call of this miraculous herb. It has found its way into our home in several facets. For one I named our house after it. It is a beautiful reminder that this home is one of pure intentions and vibrations. It is a sacred home to create from. What is the name of your home? What could you name your home so that every time you spoke it, it inspired you in some way?
So, a few months back I was up in Ojai, CA with some friends whom had harvested a bunch of local Sage. We ended up making sage sticks out of it on our trip to Santa Cruz. This Sage is a wonderful home & spirit purifier. I utilize these sage sticks to cleanse the entrances of the home, the rooms, doorways and any one inside the home. I feel the healing effects and as I walk the parameters of the house I enjoy saying a prayer that all good spirits abide here and only those of the MOST HIGH dwell here.
Other Medicinal Uses of Sage,
The Great Healer
Next I like to create a steamed decoction of dried sage or you can use essential oil of Sage for this. Simply put 3 drops of HI-FI Sage Oil in a glass pot and then pour some boiling spring water over the oil. Put a large towel over your head and inhale the vapors. This will clean out the lungs and the folds of the lungs. One of the most potent medicines for the lungs. We breathe in many bacterias and viruses and Sage is one of the most potent ways to clear mucus and other impurities. This method also gives you a Sage Facial. You can also let the Sage simmer so that the home is filled with its healing essence.
Next, enjoy Sage in your Himalayan Crystal Salt Inhaler to continue to purify the lungs. You can purchase a salt inhaler on line or at your health food store. Add a couple drops of Sage Essential Oil to the crystals and enjoy clean air on a plane, in the car or even just have it around the house. I like to keep it out and utilize it during breath work.
I also grow Sage, well I guess it wouldn’t quite be “The Sage House” without growing it here right? I enjoy taking some of the fresh herb and mincing it into salads and making hot tea with it. It’s truly potent and yummy! You can even create a cultured seed or nut cheese and infuse the mixture with sage. It makes for a quite decadent and sophisticated cheese plate! Serve along side a glass of Coconut water Kefir Champagne or Jun!
Sage is a remedy for colds, fevers and respiratory infections. It is quite powerful for the treatment of nervous system challenges and digestive issues too. It has been uses for excessive uterine bleeding and for the reversing of gray hairs. In fact the list of remedies go on and on for this herb.
Sage Essential oil is enjoyable to wear as a natural perfume. I have found it to be similar to vetiver in its grounding qualities. You can find both of these essential oils here: Living Libations
Thanks for stopping by the Sacred Backyard and the Sage House. I love YOU!
