White Sage is a dried, aromatic herb that has been used for centuries as incense and in smudge pots for ceremonial use.
White sage is a flowering perennial that is native to the Southwest U.S. Its tall woody stems and tiny white flowers love dry, arid slopes with lots of sun, and flourish in the rocky heights of the southwestern canyons.
White sage grows only in the Southwestern part of the United States, and there is concern about its wild crafting as its' typical environments are taken over by human growth. In addition, a drought in 2002 seriously limited the crop of white sage, prompting many herbalists to suggest that enthusiasts consider growing their own. White sage has medicinal and ceremonial uses and is often burned as smudge sticks and in smudge pots.
