Fresh Salvia Plant
The sage plant is held sacred by many Native American Indians, because of its effective purifying energies. It heals by bringing the patient back into balance and cleanses the body and mind of negative spirits and impurities. Sage when dried is a traditional choice for burning and smudging for cleansing rituals. A smudging ceremony can be performed by nearly anyone who wishes to relieve their worries, open their mind, clear negative thoughts and feelings, harmonize the body and de-stress the spirit. It is often used when a person faces a personal difficulty, when negative luck has seemed to follow, prior to a major transition, within a new house, over a new baby or following a major emotional difficulty. In a sense, whenever a person feels "out of balance" or unlucky.
