California white sage (Salvia apiana) is a species of sage native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico. This plant is known for its sweet and resinous aroma, as well as its traditional use in smoking ceremonies and rituals.


Salvia apiana is a perennial plant that grows in the form of a bush, with silver leaves and spiral-shaped white flowers. When burned, this variety of sage emits a characteristic, sweet and resinous aroma, and has strong cleansing and protective properties.


Native American tribes, particularly those in the southwestern region of the United States, have used Salvia apiana in their rituals for centuries. The plant is considered sacred and is used to ward off bad energy, cleanse spaces and promote spiritual connection.
