White or sacred sage is a plant native to Southern North America and Northern Mexico, with a history of use by First Nations people in these regions as a ceremonial tool, for cleansing, clearing and protecting. This plant has a beautiful and rich aromatic, grounding and uplifting scent when used fresh or burning the dried aerials.
Sage smudging is a technique using the smoke of the plant to cleanse the energy of a person or space, filling the air with a powerful aroma. It’s no surprise that this plant is used as an upper-respiratory tonic, potentially aiding in sinus congestion, sore throats and colds/flus.
Whit sage likes well draining soil and on the drier side, good air circulation, lots of sun, and not too much water. Too much moisture will rot the plant.
Care for your plants: should the plant arrive stressed, email a photo within 2 days of receiving. I suggest a stress dose of SeaSol, and a part-shady, part-sunny warm location.
