Why White Sage?
Also referred to as Sacred White Sage oil, the Apothecary Shoppe’s white sage essential oil is extracted from the cultivated dried leaves and stems using a steam distillation method. Historically used by the Native Americans in central and southern California for healing purposes, today, white sage oil’s popularity has grown and is still used to promote comfort with minor aches and pains associated with daily activities. Diffusing white sage is one of our favorite ways to experience this precious oil.

White Sage Ointment
For topical support
- 1 ½ teaspoons White Sage Oil Salvia apiana
- 1 pound Anhydrous Lanolin
- ¼ to ½ ounce Beeswax (grated preferred)
Instructions: Melt lanolin in a stainless-steel bowl over a pot of hot water or in a double boiler. Always use a double boiler to heat lanolin and oil. Add the grated beeswax, varying the amount depending on how firm the final ointment needs to be. Check the consistency by dipping a teaspoon into the hot mixture and placing it in the freezer for five minutes. If it is too stiff, add more lanolin or oil; if it is too thin, add more beeswax. The consistency can be affected by humidity. Add the essential oil, then let the mixture cool until it is safe to handle. Then stir and pour the mixture into sterile jars (stirring ensures that the essential oil does not settle on the bottom). Finally, let the mixture cool before putting on the lid.
Substitutions: you may use a stainless steel pot in place of the double boiler as needed.
