Freshly dried Sage (Salvia officinalis) from my garden - to be used in aromatherapy steam inhalations.
This variety is different than White Sage, which is often seen in stores and sold as "smudge sticks".
This herb contains thujone and camphor, which support respiratory health by reducing phlegm. Others benefits include reducing inflammation and relaxing muscle tension (topical application). Sage also has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, which help to fight sore throats, as well as pulmonary and digestive tract infections.
Energetically, Sage is reputed to strengthen and relax Qi, simultaneously. It promotes a feeling of euphoria - uplifting the Spirit without detaching one from reality. 🌱
