This is the extremely pungent, White Sage from the California coast.

Also known as Buffalo Sage, it is a favorite for smudging and blessing.

Our White sage (Salvia apiana, as are our other sages and all of our wild-crafted plants) are collected in an ethical manner with respect to the plant, to the land and to the land owners. Taos Herb Company and our trusted wild-crafters have been engaged in ethical wild-crafting since 1981. We love plants, we respect plants, we depend on plants and we must collect plants in a manner that ensures that this precious plant will still be there year after year.


Our White Sage is collected from private property with permission from the property owner and permission from the plant though prayers to the plant spirit. When white Sage is collected properly, which is done by snipping just the leaf clusters (and only about 30 percent of the leaf clusters from any single plant), the process actually stimulates more growth and increases the supply of White Sage. Snipping the leaf cluster (rather than tearing of whole branches or ripping up the entire plant) causes the stem to bifurcate (split into 2 new stems) which doubles the number of leaves.

Great Leaves and Clusters 09/28/2020
By Glen Hyskell
I used to order sage leaves and clusters from a First Nations store in Whitehorse, Yukon, where I discovered them when visiting my daughter. Then, I could not find any here in the US that were comparable, so I had her send me more from time to time. I have been looking for some stateside to avoid the inconvenience for her, but not till now have I found the same sage for smudging as I could get there, so I was thrilled when I received my order from Taos Herb Co. and being a big fan of Robert Mirabal from Taos, I was hopeful that these were the real deal, and they certainly are. I highly recommend them.
