White Sage - BH Wildcrafted
White sage, also known as Salvia apiana, is an evergreen perennial shrub that is native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. It's famous for its strong aroma and medicinal properties.
White sage is most commonly used in spiritual practices, often known as smudging, a cleansing ritual used to neutralize negative energies in a space, people, or objects. The dried sage is usually bound into a stick, then one end is lit and the smoke is directed into the area to be cleansed.
Apart from its spiritual uses, white sage can be used for its therapeutic benefits. It has antimicrobial properties that keep infectious bacteria, viruses, and fungi at bay. It's been used in traditional medicine for treating a variety of conditions like digestion problems, menstrual issues, colds, kidney problems and is believed to improve memory and mental clarity.
Moreover, sage is also used in cooking for its strong flavor, primarily in heavy and rich dishes like those that include meats, cheese, or legumes.
Always ensure to use sage in moderation, as too much can lead to side effects such as dry mouth, throat irritation, low blood sugar or kidney damage. For those who are pregnant, nursing, or have epilepsy, it is recommended to avoid using white sage as it can cause uterine contractions or trigger seizures.
