Observations and Anecdotal Information
Blue Sage is a plant that grows predominantly across much of Utah’s and Arizona’s wild lands. Because it is distilled at a high elevation, the temperature required to reach the boiling point is lower, resulting in an oil that is less affected by heat exposure.
The resulting oil carries more of the plants true essence in the aroma. It smells exactly like the heavenly aromatic gift that is released by picking a sagebrush leaf and rubbing it between your fingers.
Indigenous peoples have used this form of sage for smudging ceremonies. It facilitates the cleansing of environmental energy and of the human energy field.
A local distiller says about this oil, “Indigenous cultures have used (blue sage essential oil) for coughs, colds, headaches, stomach aches, fevers, internal bleeding and to relieve pain during child birthing. Poultices of wet leaves applied to bruises reduce swelling.
Navajo weavers boiled the leaves and flowers to create a yellow-gold color, used to dye wool. Ute Indians wove the shredded bark into wicks for candles, and they made sacks of woven bark and lined them with grass”.
This essential oil, in my experience, is more active on the etheric and energetic levels than most. It has a similarity in frequency to a flower essence, and has already become one of my most endeared oils.
