This adage has long been associated with martial arts, war, and sport throughout history, but this time we are talking about your health! The changing of the seasons is upon us and now is the time to prepare your body against the onslaught colds and flus that will be all around us shortly!
What can you do to prevent such intrusions in your life? Well, I’ll tell you what I can do for you! I just happen to have 3 products that help you put up the best defense!
1) Sage Air Freshener: Clear the air around you and help add protection against that co-worker who always comes in to work when sick (you know who they are) or your kid’s friends that come by sniffing and coughing, or from your spouse who never admits it when they are sick, with our crisp, clean, fast acting Sage Air Freshener! Sage Air Freshener uses the anti-viral and anti-bacterial power of Sage (salvia apiana) to protect your space. Use it in the office, at home, in the car and while traveling on planes or long road trips. People LOVE this scent; it's not overpowering, yet it's powerful and works quickly.
2) Next up is Sage Throat Spray, made with Sage and Raw Honey! use this for a tickle in your throat, or if you missed that boat and are already full fledged sick. This stuff will knock it out and help you get better faster and more completely, without the lingering symptoms that go on for weeks and months each winter Sage Throat Spray provides immediate topical relief and will improve healing time! Efficient, effective and all natural, be sure to check out testimonials, to hear great success stories about Sage Throat Spray.
3) And the third product in this awesome, immune building trifecta is Sage Body Oil! Sage Body Oil can be spread to the nape of the neck and the upper chest to put up a great defense where the body’s immunity is most vulnerable (according to TCM). Not only will Sage Body Oil boost the body’s defense but it will smooth and moisturize the skin! In fact, many consider oil as the 'new lotion'. Olive oil self massage and as body moisturizer, has been used for centuries in the Mediterranean and Middle East. Our blend is made with high quality California Olive Oil, cold pressed, and wild crafted Sage from the canyons of Southern California. This oil has a gorgeous texture, is smooth, absorbent (not overly greasy feeling like many body oils) and holds an earthy, clean scent.
Sage is an historical herb that is both purifying and enlivening. There's a reason why Sage continues to be used, as cooking herb, insect repellent, space clearing agent and herbal healing ally. Sage's scientific name is Salvia, and both names are derived from the Latin 'Salvere', meaning 'to save'. It has been recommended at one time, for nearly every ailment, through many regions of the world. Sage's reputation is justified, and Blue Sapphire Medicine is pleased to offer such a powerful healing plant through ways that are accessible to those of us living in today's modern world.
Remember: NOW is the time to go on the offense, in order to build your defense for the upcoming change of seasons! You can buy one at a time or all three as part of the Sage Triple Play.
