Description

As a dried herb, Artimisia is closely connected to the tribal beliefs and traditions of many cultures. Used by the Plains Indians for thousands of years, it is the most popular Native American botanical across North America. While there are many varieties throughout the world, we harvest our plants fresh from South Dakota in June. The leaves are carefully dried to preserve the natural essential oils of this cleansing herb.

Not only are the cool leaves soothing and fragrant, the appearance of this herb marks one of the great seasonal ceremonial cycles for Northern Plains Indians. During Native American rituals such as the Sundance and the Hanbleceya (crying for a dream or vision quest,) beds of fresh Artimisia restore and refresh participants while the earthy aroma grounds tribal members, tying them to their purpose.

Outside of these important ceremonies, plant smudging is used by people from all walks of life to cleanse a space. As a purification ritual, the Native Americans believe the smell of burning sage pleases the spirits while the smoke repels bad influences. This ancestral connection between smoke and spirit, to both attract positive energy and remove negative energy, is represented across our continent and the world.

If you are interested in learning how to burn sage, our Tribe Scribe article, How to Smudge with Prairie Sage, is a great place to start.


Dimensions:
Bundles include both leaves and stems
Sold in 1/4 pound, 1/2 pound, or 1 pound bundles.

Special Note: All of our long time customers will notice that the price of sage has gone up and that it is now limited to (1) pound per customer, we are right at the end of our 2019 South Dakota sage harvest. This means we are on the precipice of not having any South Dakota sage available until the 2020 growing season.

Please consider this while making your on-line or phone call orders. Thank you for your continued support.

Sage bundles

Box arrived within 2 days, containing the 1lb sage bundle. I've been purchasing sage from Prairie Edge for years. I wouldn't even think about going anywhere else for sage or sweet grass or osha root.
