Blue Sage also known as “Grandmother Sage” and is a purifying herb with broad medicinal and magical applications. A close relative of White Sage, Blue Sage is also good for healing and cleansing rituals. Its soothing, relaxing smell can be used to aid meditation, or burned simply for enjoyment. It’s not as pungent as White Sage, and is more agreeable to some who find the strong, bracing scent of White Sage overpowering. The use of sage to cleanse a home is deeply rooted in Native American history. They used sage for many purposes, including healing, energy cleansing, to remove negative energy and ritual ceremonies. Today, Native Americans use it in sage cleansing ceremonies for those who are seeking balance and pure thoughts.
