Here is what an RMO family member said about it on facebook:
MS: “I found a fantastic new use for my favorite oil, Sage. Use it to clean your gemstones! Very powerful. 🙂 Also, sometimes after a particularly long day at work, I will sort of cleanse myself from the junk of the day by placing a few drops on the top of my head or massaging the third eye point with it.
I have never seen a ghost, however, I have been in places where it felt as if I could see a ghost and/or something was watching me. I have also been in situations where I felt something dark. I do not consider myself superstitious, just empathic. Anyway when in these places, I will open a door or a window on one side of the room, house, etc and stand at the opposite end. Praying I will make my way to the open window while dripping sage along the way. I have found this to effectively remove whatever it was I felt.
