Sage Essential Oil
Sagacious Sage Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fuzzy leaves of the French sage plant, an herb used more frequently throughout history than perhaps any other. The popularity of Sage Essential Oil from ancient Greece to the Renaissance is due to its amazing do-all for skin and self-care. Its namesake is derived from the Latin salvaro, meaning "to save." Centuries-old literature from all corners of the earth reference the all encompassing power of sage; a few drops a day will keep the spirit at play!
