This top quality white sage is salvia apiana, also known as buffalo sage. Salvia is from the latin word salvareÓ which means to heal. This natural, freshly picked white sage has long been used in smudging ceremonies.
Top quality white sage is used for clearing, smudging and cleansing. Place the sage bundle in the bottom of an abalone shell or other heat resistant dish, it's also wise to add a little sand for insulation. Ignite the leaves, blow out flame and the sage will release a cloud of white, purifying smoke. When you're finished with the sage, cover it with sand and leave it in the container. When you want to use the bundle again, just shake the sand off. The smell of white sage brings a sense of peace and clarity, while clearing negativity from the room.

Welcome to Shades of Green, I’m so glad you’re here!
When I opened the store in 2009 there wasn’t many options for sustainable, earth friendly products in our community. It was a bit hard at first to source these kinds of products but now with so many people getting on board with the Zero waste movement there’s so much more available. We love to support Local and Canadian Made products as much as possible but when we do source products made outside of North America we make sure they are Made responsibly in Fair Trade practices.
Thank you for visiting the shop and wherever you are on your earth loving journey we are here to help. Small changes everyday can make a big impact.
