Overview

White sage is a flowering perennial that is native to the Southwestern United States. This plant loves to grow on sunny, arid slopes and has tall woody stems and tiny white flowers. White sage exists only in a relatively small range in southern California. Much of its limited range has been affected by human development.

White sage leaves are often rolled into a large bundle and burned as an incense to purify physical spaces. This popularity has unfortunately led to the overharvesting of this plant, with the ongoing droughts in California also negatively affecting stands of white sage and slowing the recovery rate. Many prominent herbalists have suggested that enthusiasts consider growing their own. Mountain Rose Herbs is committed to the long term sustainability of this precious botanical. We pledge to purchase only material that has been organically cultivated or consciously collected with the long-term health of the wild stands being the guiding factor.

Choose from:
4 pack small: These smaller bundles are about 4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches thick at the burning end. They are bundled with the stems together, providing a handle for easy use.
1 large: Perfect for longer usage time. Each bundle is roughly 8-9 inches long and1-2 inches thick.
