Blue Sage also known as "Grandmother Sage” is a purifying herb with broad medicinal and magical applications. Blue Sage is widely used for cleansing and purification purposes, it provides spiritual strength and sometimes it is also used during exorcism rituals as well to remove the malevolent spirits.
Blue Sage is a hardy bush found in the deserts of the Southwest. It’s named for its abundant blue flowers, but the leaves also have a blue-ish cast. It has thin leaves and a fragrance that is both herbaceous and floral, similar to Lavender.
A close relative of White Sage, Blue Sage is also good for healing and cleansing rituals. Its soothing, relaxing smell can be used to aid meditation, or burned simply for enjoyment.
Blue Sage is not as pungent as White Sage, and is more agreeable to some folks who find the strong, bracing scent of White Sage overpowering.
The use of sage to cleanse a home is deeply rooted in history. Several different cultures have used sage for many purposes, including healing, energy cleansing, to remove negative energy and ritual ceremonies. Historically, healers have used sage cleansing on people who were ill, to bring them back from the negative space where their body and soul resided at that point. Today, people use it in sage cleansing ceremonies for those who are seeking balance and pure thoughts.
