Artisan distilled from the leaves and flowers of Salvia apiana, White Sage hydrosol has a strong aroma that most describe as a blend of Rosemary and Sage. White Sage hydrosol is predominately used as a room spray to cleanse and purify auric space, application to chakras, and rituals. White Sage hydrosol is also called Desert Sage and comes from the same plant Native Americans have traditionally used for ritual, smudging, and healing for centuries. This is the hydrosol to use for clearing negative energy much like traditional smudging (burning of a tightly tied bundle of dried Salvia apiana leaves). Suzanne Catty writes in her book that "The energy field of the hydrosol is unbelievable...".
Consider White Sage hydrosol if you live in an apartment where traditional smudging is not practical due to smoke alarms.Beneficial Uses of White Sage Hydrosol:
- Air Purification
- Spiritual and Energetic Cleansing
- Smudging spray
The shelf life of a hydrosol is generally up to 2 years or longer when properly stored in the refrigerator. This White Sage hydrosol does not contain preservatives.
