Wonderful generous sage has properties ranging from medicinal to mystical, culinary to cosmetic. Shaman in many cultures use sage smoke as a purifier and in our culture it's widely used in aromatherapy and fragrance. Its Latin name Salvia derives from 'salvere' which means 'to save' and it was also called Salvia salvatrix - the plant which saves and heals, making sage a perfect symbol for wellbeing. Wear this talisman as a reminder to nurture your own wellbeing, however pressured life becomes it's always important to make choices for health. We can all be our own healer. This lovely hand crafted sage leaf has softly textured surface imprinted from real sage. Highly polished edges are a lovely contrast to the organic inner leaf.

Each piece symbolises an empowering mindset for a positive life, and acts as a reminder to pay attention to the things that make you strong. It's no mystery that focus and good intent get results.
Sterling silver Size: 45mm x 15mm Chain length: 30"
Made by hand by craftsmen and craftswomen at family owned workshops in Thailand. We know the team well and love to find an excuse to visit. Mosami uses 'second life' sterling silver - this means it's been used for other things in the past (maybe jewellery, cutlery or an industrial use) and then re-refined to produce perfect sterling silver. We do this because the environmental and human impact of silver mines is truly terrible. By re-cycling silver we are at least minimising this damage. However this is a temporary fix - what we campaign for is mining that is respectful for the environment and miners.
Healer is about empowering us to take care, she is a lovely gift for a friend who needs a little inspiration and encouragement to focus attention on herself instead of everyone else, or simply as a gift to someone who is struggling with illness to say that you care and wish for their speedy return to wellness.
