  • Consume – Per wellandgood.com, To make sage tea, or ‘thinker’s tea’, as it’s called in a nod to its wisdom-boosting attributes, Corbett recommends adding two teaspoons of sage to eight to ten ounces of hot water and steep for 15 minutes.
  1. Palo Santo – Also indigenous to the Americas, this sacred wood can be found in South America and is prevalent in Latin cultures. The name ‘palo santo’ means ‘holy-wood’ and is commonly used to elevate vibrations, purify the air, and cleanse negative energies.
