Desert Sage is valued by Native Americans for medicinal, ceremonial and practical uses. Aromatic, it is used during sweat lodge rituals for spiritual purification. Clary Sage essential oil is well known for its balancing properties. We love the mellow, warm and herbal aroma these two plants bring to our body bar. Perfect for a daily bath or shower ritual. Did you know Clary Sage was nicknamed "clear eyes" by herbalists in the Middle Ages? Its botanical name is salvia sclarea, from Latin salvere (to save or heal) and clarus (clear).
