Organically farmed salvia apiana, or "white sage", from Southern California.
The use of white sage in ceremonial medicinal has it's roots in western Native American religions and belief systems. White sage can be used in food, teas, and tinctures, and research has found that the use of this herb reduces the survival rate of certain bacterial species. In addition to it's physical health benefits, it is also generally used to cleanse negativity and to re-energize the spirit. These wands, or "smudge sticks," are used as smoke and spiritual medicine and are not intended for consumption.
These white sage wands are grown and harvested from one of the only certified organic white sage farms in the United States. They measure approximately 3-4" long and roughly 1.5" wide. Please note that there may be variations in the appearance of your bundle.
