Sage is an herb from an evergreen shrub, Salvia officinalis, in the mint family. Its long, grayish-green leaves take on a velvety, cotton-like texture when rubbed.
Burning sage help release negative energy from your surroundings. It also helps with removing bacteria from the air, repelling insects, improving intuition, purifying specific objects and improving mood and reducing stress and anxiety.
And the lavender will help you with insomnia, depression, grief, sorrow and anxiety.
