We are extremely critical when it comes to suppliers promoting California White Sage and let me tell you why…
Did you know, both, a huge percentage of White Sage imported into Australia is grown and harvested in China NOT California and there is also a percentage of authentic California White Sage grown commercially using CHEMICALS!
So, why is this a problem you ask?
Vibrant Souls is opposed to anyone placing others in harm and misleading them so we wanted to reach out through this blog to raise awareness.
Think about it, you should never buy anything without clearly knowing and understanding where and how it is manufactured or produced and price should never be a consideration over health and safety.
No one should ever want to place family, friends, or others in a bad environment or use something harmful that isn’t what it says it
Let’s talk about Californian White Sage
Like food, California White Sage is a product you consume, lusciously filling your space and breathing in its smoke to cleanse and purify the soul and surrounding energy so it has to be of good quality and chemical-free.
Traditionally Native Americans use White Sage Smudge Sticks to purify the mind, body, and spirit before praying and to purify the atmosphere while dispersing negativity. This herb is considered “sacred” by Native Americans who have used the wands or loose herbs for generations in the “smudging” ceremony.
The smoke from dried white sage actually changes the ionic composition of the air and can have a direct effect on reducing our stress response. The ancient practice of cleansing oneself, people, places, things, times, and events with smoke from herbs is to enhance our spiritual connection.
You would be shocked to know that much of the California White Sage sold here in Australia is labeled as California White Sage but where and how its grown is not clearly marked or disclosed and is NOT California or by the Native Americans.
Regardless, suppliers continue to market and sell the Sage at a premium price because of its name alone.
Why you always want Chemical Free White Sage
Like all things with chemicals, there is always a risk or immediate effect on your health and safety from being exposed to them. What’s most upsetting to us is you may be getting exposed and not even know about it!
California White Sage is supposed to be naturally grown, chemical-free, and sustainable. The harvesting, processing, packaging, and any required fumigation should be the same … but it isn’t always, and that is what you should be worried about.
If chemicals are used to transport, store or treat your White Sage that then seeps into and is absorbed by the sage. When you light and burn the sage, if chemically grown or treated, you will be infesting and inhaling the air with toxic chemical pollutants that never should exist when you smudge.
When you smudge you are supposed to be burning the clean natural essence of the sage itself alone to ensure the health and wellbeing of you and others.
Making sure you get the best
Everything is bound to the transfer of energy so how on earth is using a product that has been grown using chemicals good for you, your home, pets, loved ones, or anyone entering your spaces … IT’S NOT!
Whether it is our White Sage products or others, always ensure you select the highest quality and a chemical-free option. If your unsure or not confident with the supplier’s responses to any questions you have then DO NOT use that product.
Every Californian White Sage Smudge Stick from Vibrant Souls, as well as any of our products Sage is an element of consists of natural, organically grown and sustainably harvested Sage from private land, very carefully collected to preserve these sacred plants.
