White sage (Salvia Apiana) from the coastal mountains of California. This is a broad leaf sage which is prized for its strong aromatic properties. This sage has the strongest scent of all sages we have. These large bundles are approximately 8 to 9 inches long.
Sage is one of the most sacred herbs among indigenious North American peoples. The clean burning sage is used in the energy cleansing ritual known as smudging (or purification), which in theory means the smoke would attach itself to the negative energy of the area and cleanse it so that it becomes positive energy.
