White Incense Sage - Salvia apiana
White sage is most commonly used in smudging ceremonies.
"The smudging process involves lighting the tips of dried sage leaves, blowing them out, and allowing the smoke to escape into the air. Smudging is typically done using a sage wand (smudge stick), but loose white sage leaves can be used instead. Sage wands are sage leaves wrapped tightly together. To burn a smudge stick, light the tip of a few leaves and blow it out. You can either wave the stick in air or place stick in a fire-safe container that contains salt or sand. The salt or sand will allow the smudge stick to stand erect while burning. To extinguish the smudge stick, place smoking end of the stick into the salt or sand and smolder. The smoke created from burning sage produces a calming effect on those who inhale it.
In addition to smudging, white sage may be used for topical applications by preparing teas, poultices, and/or oil infusions. White sage is used in these applications because it has anti-fungal, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, calming, deodorizing, and healing properties. White sage contains diterpenoids, which are compounds which have been shown to fight bacterial infections, and reduce allergy symptoms. It also contains cineole, which acts as an anti-inflammatory/anti-bacterial agent. Tannic acid content provides anti-fungal properties. Sage is also used as an antipyretic; used as a sweat bath to reduce fever. White sage has a calming effect on the body and soul. This is likely due to its miltirone content (a compound which performs similar to valium to reduce anxiety). Finally, white sage contains phytoestrogens, which are compounds very similar to the female hormone estrogen. Herbalists have used white sage to help treat the hot flashes that accompany menopause." *naturesgarden.com
This is a loose sage, not bound into smudge sticks and can be burned in any fireproof vessel. Contains leaves and stems.
(Always use caution when burning sage, as anything that is on fire can potentially catch other things on fire. Also, keep anything that is burning away from children and pets).
