This aromatic sage thrives in the windswept deserts of the Santa Fe Taos area. Desert Sage has a warm herbaceous aroma much like bay leaves and mint tea. It is used for cleansing and purifying, protection, and inner strength.

The tradition of using sacred sage to ward off evils spirits and negative energies has been avowed since ancient times. White sage has been used in ceremonies to seek blessings of health and prosperity, banish spirits, and encourage protection.
Bonus Tip: After you light the sage, do not stop it from burning. The spirit of white sage knows just how much negativity or heaviness needs to be released and will burn accordingly. You can burn entire wands of sage in one sitting or it may stay 'lit' for only a minute or two. If you feel you are done burning sage, place the wand in a fireproof bowl or shell and allow the sage to cease burning naturally. If you watch the smoke, sometimes it will drift to a particular part of the room, car, or person - that is where the healing/protection energy is most needed.
Be wise when using smudge sticks. Burn carefully and store in a dry space away from direct sunlight. Do not leave unattended.
