Our new sage (Salvia officinalis) essential oil is a very true mirror to the aroma of the actual sage plant. It calms our emotions and stops us going off the deep end. It brings a calming clarity to the subtle body, allowing us to feel deep and difficult emotions face-on. It works in the background, supporting and calming without us even noticing. With this willingness to feel comes a softening of our mental schemas. We are invited out of the hamster wheel that often accompanies intense emotional growth periods and to fully allow the feelings to run their course. Although it helps us to open to our emotions, we remain calm, which really avoids emotional explosions or falling into patterns of fear and projection when we find ourselves in a conflict or heated discussion. Sage essential oil comes from a very wise plant that helps bring clarity to situations releasing mental tension and rigid thinking.
