This aromatic herb has been used for centuries as incense and in smudge pots for ceremonial use. In addition to being burned as incense, white sage has medicinal uses.

Burning leaves have been used to fumigate a house or dwelling after a contagion, and to purify the air during illnesses. This is called “smudging”.
