Origin: United States
Botanical Name: Salvia apiana
Description: When crushed, white sage incense gives off a sage-like aroma that comes from a four percent essential oil content comprised mostly of camphor and eucalyptol.
Suggested Uses: Smudging is a traditional Native American use of white sage that involves burning an herb and bathing oneself or an object in its smoke to clear away negative influences and restore balance. The herbs are bundled or placed loosely in a bowl where they are ignited and then extinguished. The resulting smoke is fanned over the person or object to be cleansed using one’s hand or a feather.
