My Introduction To Sage

I was first introduced to Sage as a young child and during this time it was simply not something we thought to speak openly about. Although not communicated with me as a young child it's full purpose or intent, there was something about it that felt somehow spiritual for me. In later years it was explained exactly why we "Saged" is what we referred to it as back then.

As a young adult I continued this tradition any time it was necessary and it never failed. Over the years I would find local farmers markets to purchase Sage for energetic cleansing, prayer or meditation. During times of high stress burning sage before prayer brings me a sense of peace and comfort. The up and coming metaphysical popup shop currently located in Queen Creek, Arizona offers a variety of sage types. The online store is expected to be updated fully by 2024.
