When we added sage to our crystals it was a perfect fit to our product line on The Crystal Path. We have a wonder variety of sage on our web site, (www.mycrystalpath.com) each one offers different benefits to help enhance life. Until we added sage I had never used or experienced the benefits, honestly, I could not believe the results. I felt lighter, my room seems cleaner and smells heavenly and when I smudge before meditation and prayer, I feel more connected to myself and the universe. I strongly encourage you to experience the benefits of sage and smudging.
