Desert Sage (Artemisia tridentata) – Our wild sage conjures images of camping out under the windblown stars, inhaling the sharp-clear aroma of an essence commonly known as “cowboy cologne.” This sacred plant is a powerful ally for approaching life with calmness and clarity.
White Sage (Salvia Apiana) – Wondrous white sage glows with gorgeous silvery-green leaves that are a fragrant favorite of honeybees, who are attracted to the naturally protective powers contained in them.
