Another therapeutic benefit of sage is smudging. Sage smudging is a powerful cleansing technique from the Native American tradition in which herbs are burned for emotional, psychic and spiritual purification.
Growing Sage Indoors
To raise the medicinal herb sage indoors, just plant several seeds in a five to six-inch pot. It is suggested to:
- Use plastic containers, as they tend to hold moisture longer than clay pots.
- Once the sage has sprouted, thin It back to one or two seedlings in each container.
- Fairly rich soil is necessary to produce healthy herbs.
- Plants should be placed on a sunny windowsill.
- When sage shoots are four inches high, enrich with water and a good liquid plant fertilizer.
