White Ceremonial Sage WC


Price per oz.

Common Name: Standardized: white sage

Other: California white sage, greasewood

Botanical Name: Salvia apiana Jeps., Plant Family: Lamiaceae

Introduction: 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. The aromatic herb has been used for centuries as incense and in smudge pots for ceremonial use, thus its common name of white ceremonial sage.

Constituents: Diterpines and triterpenes, including carnosic acid, oleaolic acid, and ursolic acid

Parts Used: Dried leaves

Typical Preparations: The dried leaves on their stem as incense.

Summary: White sage grows only in the Southwestern part of the United States, and there is concern about its wildcrafting as its typical environs 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.

Precautions: Specific: No known precautions.; General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
