African Wild Sage - Leleshwa Essential Oil Space Clearing: This oil has a very strong capacity to clear old, stagnant energy from a room, as well as residual odors, such as those that are left from cigarette smoke and from cooking certain foods. The undiluted oil is so powerful in this application that often all that is needed is to take the cap off the bottle and leave it sitting in the room for an hour or so. This is generally how I clear hotel rooms when traveling. It can also be used as a spray, or by putting a few drops on the hands, rubbing them together, and clapping the space. Note: if the use of this oil on the skin causes irritation, rinse the affected area thoroughly with water and then apply olive oil. Leleshwa is a small shrub common in the Great Rift valley of East and Southern Africa. Its uses are numerous and impressive. Tests have shown that Leleshwa is extremely effective as an antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and natural detergent. Traditionally, as an herb Leleshwa has been used to heal cuts and wounds, and is also used as a natural insect repellant by many tribes. It is also reported to have been used by traveling Sotho peoples to ward off evil influences whilst traveling through a strange country. Many wild animals that live in the areas where Leleshwa grow, particularly cape buffaloes and black rhinos have been observed rubbing themselves against a Leleshwa shrub. Upon closer inspection, it is revealed that those animals, which had crushed the leaves onto their skin, were relatively free of ticks. Leleshwa also discourages the sharp biting tsetse flies. This symbiotic relationship opened new ideas as to the potential uses of this plant.
