White Sage Bundle

With the scientific name of Salvia apiana, white sage is also popularly known as sacred sage or bee sage. Found primarily in northern Mexico and the southwestern United States, such as in California and other desert regions. This shrub is found on the slopes of coastal sage shrub regions. It has evergreen leaves covered in hair that release aromas and oils when rubbed, burned, or steeped. The most commonly seen form of white sage is in small dried bundles, which has a more traditional or spiritual application. These bundles are burned for their aroma and as a tool in ‘scrubbing’ a home or area of bad energy/spirits.
