We artisanally distilled this sagebrush essential oil ourselves in the high desert around Taos, New Mexico. It was collected and distilled with mindfulness and prayer every step of the way. We have an extremely limited supply. Finally back in stock! This is our new late summer 2022 harvest.
This is a plant that we are deeply intimate with, because we have worked with it in teaching and consultations. Sagebrush is a strong survivor here in the New Mexico desert lands where we live. It grows where nothing else does. Its high level of ketones not only make sure that it has no competitors for the precious and limited supply of nutrients and humidity in these desert soils but also enable its soul to survive in this extremely harsh environment by being only partly here. While its body looks frail, with branches like fraying rope, most of its being is invisible in the air above, which gives the sky here a uniquely powerful presence and light. We call it ‘the master of air.’
Highly ketonic plants don’t have the lush greens of most plants. They are most often greyish with a thin white veil covering them, e.g. absinthe, mugwort, helichrysum, the sages and spike lavender. These plants, due to their ketones, are not fully incarnated. It’s as if they have one foot in the material world and one foot above it.
This is why we use this oil, by only smelling it, for the alchemical stage Sublimatio. Smell it and feel yourself getting lighter and rising above your physical body. It helps us get an eagle’s view of our lives, a new and larger perspective. This can be helpful when you feel stuck in the daily grind, finding it difficult to see further than the end of your nose. In order to make life changing decisions, we need to see things from a wider perspective: How we got to where we are, what needs to go and where we are heading. This oil is the perfect ally for helping us do this. We are very excited to share this beautiful aroma with you. It is extremely alive.
Caution: Due to its high ketone levels, only use this oil only by smelling.
