Salvia Leucophylla or Salvia Mellifera (gray sage) is known for its calming, peaceful, and sedating effects. It inspires love and relieves anxiety. To burn sage, you light the end of the bundle and let the smoke waft into the air. If you are trying to cleanse the air in a room, you’d then walk around the space with the burning wand. You can also place the burning sage bundle in an abalone shell.
