White Sage (Salvia apiana)

White Sage

White sage is a perennial shrub with silver-gray leaves. This native plant is often found in the coastal sage scrub habitat of southern California and Baja California.

White sage is an important and sacred plant for Native Americans. This plant provided both food and medicine for the Kumeyaay. The seeds of the white sage could be ground up and used as a main ingredient for a meal called pinole.

The leaves of the white sage were used to remedy a cold or flu. The Kumeyaay would burn the leaves in a sweat-house to help purify out the toxins associated with an illness.

We would then like the attached image of white sage to sit adjacent to its respective text.
