INCI Name: Salvia apiana (White Sage) Distillate Water
Commonly known as White Sage, this intensely aromatic herb is also often called Sacred Sage. The aromatic herb has been used for centuries by the indigenous peoples of North America as incense and in smudge pots for ceremonial use, thus its common name of white ceremonial sage.
Suzanne Catty, author of Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy, describes the aroma of White Sage Hydrosol as being an intense combination of Sage and Rosemary. White Sage Hydrosol has numerous beneficial properties, including being anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, analgesic, and antihistaminic. In addition to being a fantastic, purifying room spray that can help clear the air of unwanted germs, White Sage Hydrosol also makes a great astringent and antiseptic for your skin. This hydrosol is even believed to help with easing menstrual symptoms.
In the spiritual realm, White Sage Hydrosol is used ceremonially for cleansing spaces much like traditional smudging. It is believed in some traditions to have its own very potent energy, which is able not only to clear negative energy but also to attract positive energy. White Sage Hydrosol is a great alternative where traditional smudging (burning of a tightly tied bundle of dried Salvia apiana leaves) is not practical due to smoke alarms.
