Black sage is one of my absolute favorite plants with abundant uses. From an herbal perspective this is one of our most beneficial allies. The scientific name for black sage is Salvia mellifera. Salvia = savior and it was a sign of a healer to have sage planted outside their home.
While many aromatic plants can be used as herbal smudges or incense, sage, particularly white sage, is the plant most recognized when it comes to this practice. The increase in demand for Salvia apiana (white sage) has placed it on United Plant Saver's watch list. This slow-growing wild plant is often unethically harvested in order to supply an insatiable consumer appetite. Knowing where the plants are harvested is paramount! And I embrace the opportunity to shed light on the use of other more prolific and abundant aromatic herbs of the southwest.
