Our very fresh Sage essential oil from Spain has an extremely diffusive and penetrating aroma that is unmistakably warming and clearing. However, essential oil of Salvia officinalis has a high thujone content (up to 50%), and because of this, it is necessary to use this oil only with appropriate caution (some recommend only with the advice of a certified aromatherapist or not at all); thujone can be highly neuro- and hepato-toxic when incorrectly used. In addition, thujone mimics estrogen and for this reason it is not recommended for use during pregnancy and breast feeding
As a dried herb, white sage (Salvia apiana) has been traditionally used in Native American culture for ceremonial cleansing; in a similar fashion, essential oil of Salvia officinalis can be diffused to cleanse room environments, or a drop can be rubbed on the hands to disinfect and clear energy.
