What Does Research Show About Sage?
Sage contains flavonoids -- plant compounds that have medicinal properties. Some of these compounds appear to improve brain health and guard against diseases like Alzheimer's. In one study of mice, sage extract improved memory.
Smudging (burning herbs and plant resins for medicinal and spiritual use) has been used since ancient times for healing and to clear the build up of emotional or spiritual negativity.
Smudging is often viewed as some sort of magical practice, however recent studies have shown that there is scientific evidence that medicinal smoke is a powerful antiseptic that can purify the air of 94% of harmful bacteria for up to 24 hours.
The electromagnetic field (aura) around our body, as well as the energy in our environment, can become blocked with harmful positive ions that can make us feel fatigued, sluggish and burnt out.
Burning sage or other herbs neutralizes the positive charge and releases large amounts of negative ions into the atmosphere. This means that our own energy, and the energy around us, will feel lighter and freer.
It is also the reason that we feel like we could “cut the tension with a knife” during an argument, or if someone is in a bad mood. A build up of positive ions due to stress, anger or any form of tension releases positive ions and causes the energy around us to become stagnant.
Burning herbs turns the positive ions back to negative ones, and therefore, the practice purifies and cleanses the atmosphere.
Although smudging and similar practices have been classed as “new age” or dismissed as fantasy or spiritual nonsense by those attempting to discredit them, research is scientifically proving that there are great benefits to the rituals that the Native Americans (along with many other indigenous groups) have inherently known of and practiced with faith throughout time.
Burning herbs is a popular method of purification in many religions and cultures.
Growing up with religion, I became accustomed to smudging, as frankincense was burned in churches. Incense is commonly burned in Asia and in Buddhist temples (read here), and the Incas burned palo santo wood. It has been a tradition in South America for hundreds of years.
The Native Americans ritualistically smudge using sacred herbs, and their technique is known as the Sacred Smoke Bowl Blessing.
The most common herbs used include cedar, sage, sweetgrass and tobacco—and they are known as the Four Manido.
Once the sacred plant is burned, the cloud of smoke that emanates is used to prepare for prayer ceremonies, rituals and purification.
Smudging is believed to heighten the sensitivity of healers, or the medicine men, so that they achieve an enhanced state of mind and can effectively assess and treat illness.
Not only is smudging used in spiritual practices, but it can also have medicinal benefits for those who are affected by poor air quality.
This means it can help those who suffer from asthma, headaches, lung problems and respiratory issues, as well as general coughs and colds.
Sage is one of the most popular herbs used for smudging.
The word sage stems from the Latin word salvia, which translates to “healthy” or “to heal.”
Studies have also shown that burning sage increases clarity and awareness, heightens wisdom, improves moods and enhances the memory and quickens the senses. (It is no coincidence that the word sage is also used to describe someone steeped in wisdom and humility.)

What are Ubique Botanical Perfumes?
Welcome to Pure Perfume
Ubique is Latin for "everywhere", and refers to Omnipresence, the property of being present everywhere.
u-bi-que [oo-bee-kwe; English] adverb, Latin, "Everywhere".
Ubique Botanical Perfumes contain concentrated botanicals. Plant, flower, wood oils, absolutes, tinctures, and concretes are used and may cause an allergic reaction if you have an allergy to these substances. It is always best to begin your fragrant Ubique journey with a sample before purchasing a larger size, but don't wait too long...these are limited creations and they sell out quickly!
• We do not accept returns on perfumes, personal care items, or sale items. Please purchase and try sample sizes before purchasing larger sizes. Thank you!

Mine Rough Stones and Crystals
Mine rough stones are those we procure directly from a mine instead of a mass dealer. These stones are fresh from the earth and have not been previously sold. We prefer mine rough stones as the vibrational qualities are HIGH.
ALL STONES AND CRYSTALS ARE MINED.
One should not expect perfection when purchasing from ANY dealer unless the stone has been cut and polished and is listed as "perfect".
If perfection is desired, please only purchase cut and polished "perfect" stones.
Mine rough stones may have dents, dings, etc. We photograph each stone and describe what we see. We do not sell that which is not of high vibrational quality and authentic.
