White Sage is an evergreen perennial shrub that is native to the United States and Mexico. Smudging, the burning of the dried leaves, is an ancient Native American tradition where White Sage is used to cleanse and purify a space or person of unwanted or negative energies. White Sage can also be used as a tea for colds, sore throat, sinus congestion, indigestion or heavy menstruation. It is also valuable as a culinary spice, with similar flavour to garden sage. Sage can reduce all bodily secretions (mucous, breast milk, sweat), so avoid internal use in pregnancy and lactation.

I initially bought this herb to try its rumored psychoactive effects. Smoking it is pleasant, and it has a nice mint almost menthol-like taste. It does create some foggy-headedness and slightly altered perception but is nowhere near what is said to happen when you smoke it. I have found, however, that it works very well for relaxing and easing muscle tension. Smoking this before bed is great and has a feel similar to a slight cannabis buzz. This initial effect lasts 10-15 minutes, after which the more relaxing effects kick in. I'd say it's a great product. Not what I bought it for but I still enjoy the effects.
