Product Description

About The Plant

Also known as 'Dalmatian' and 'Garden' Sage, this is the common herbaceous aromatic plant found in semi-arid regions the world over. A member of the illustrious mint family, Sage typically reaches a meter (~3 feet) in height with distinctly oval, fuzzy leaves and produces a large number of blueish violet blossoms. A native species to the Mediterranean, it is now predominantly cultivated in Albania, Turkey, Greece and Italy.

About The Oil

This pale yellow essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and twigs of Sage plants organically grown in Greece.

Of Interest

Sage was known at the 'sacred herb' by the ancient Romans; the word 'Salvia' is derived from the word Latin verb salvare which means 'to save' and refers to its powerful medicinal properties. Nowadays it is mostly known as a culinary spice, and the dried herb is commonly used to 'smudge' rooms, buildings and other areas to move out old, negative, or stagnant energy.

Application

INHALATION

Direct inhalation, diffuser, oil vaporizer
Aromatically, Sage essential oil can be mentally stimulating, helping one cope with despair and mental fatigue. It also assists in detoxifying the body, regulating circulation and supporting metabolism.
The oil may support the balancing of hormones for women, bringing positive energy to the pelvic chakra where negative emotions from denial and abuse can be stored.

TOPICAL

Massage, compress, bath, ointment, skincare
Its regenerative and detoxifying properties make it popular in formulas for cellulite, acne, stretch marks, healing old and keloid scars, and hair growth formulas.

Sage is highly regenerative for the skin and scalp–though this comes with a caveat: high levels of the ketone thujone call its safety into question. Some therapists don't condone using it at all, some say the essential oil should only be used by professional aromatherapists, and some say that in therapeutic dilutions it is usable for most folks (do not use if pregnant, epileptic, hypertensive, or with children under 12).

If you are using this essential oil topically be sure to keep the dilution as low as possible. This is a very powerful oil and should be used with care. Very small amounts, 1% or less, should be sufficient to tigger the the oil's biological signaling action.
INGESTION

DO NOT INGEST UNLESS UNDER MEDICAL SUPERVISION.

Aromatherapy Details

This Sage essential oil has a green, slightly spiced top note, a deep pine-like and herbaceous middle note and a warm, resinous, musty and earthy undertone.

It blends well with: Bergamot, Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Pine and Rosemary cineole.

Safety

Always test a small amount first for sensitivity or allergic reaction.

Do not use if: pregnant, epileptic, hypertensive, under 12 years of age.

IMPORTANT: Sage officinalis essential oil contains relatively high levels of thujone, a ketone that is toxic. Thujone is known to induce convulsions if used in too high a dose and should be avoided altogether during pregnancy (it is an abortifacient), with children under 12, or by individu-als with a history of epilepsy or other seizures or high blood pressure. This essential oil is not recommended for internal use unless under medical supervision.

Because of Sage's ketone content, it should be used sparingly and only as needed; not ongoing.
