100% wildcrafted, steam-distilled white sage (Salvia apiana) essential oil. Essential oils are the most concentrated spirit of a plant, and are the purest way to bring the olfactory radiance of these wild plants into your home.
This aromatic herb has been used for centuries as incense and in smudge pots for ceremonial use. In addition to being burned as incense, white sage has medicinal uses. Some Native American tribes used white sage to treat coughs and colds, or added to a sweat bath as a general tonic and fever reliever. Burning leaves have been used to fumigate a house or dwelling after a contagion, and to purify the air during illnesses.
Usage: Use as you would any essential oil, in the bath, on your clothes, on your body, or with your favorite diffuser.
Fragrance: Strong and full, characteristic, bitter, Mediterranian
