This top quality white sage is salvia apiana. Salvia is from the latin word salvare which means to heal. This natural, freshly picked white sage has long been used in smudging ceremonies.
Top quality white sage is used for clearing, smudging and cleansing. Place the sage bundle in the bottom of an abalone shell or other heat resistant dish, it's also wise to add a little sand for insulation. Ignite the leaves, blow out flame and the sage will release a cloud of white, purifying smoke. When you're finished with the sage, cover it with sand and leave it in the container. When you want to use the bundle again, just shake the sand off. The smell of white sage brings a sense of peace and clarity, while clearing negativity from the room.
