More info

Salvia apiana (White sage or sacred sage is an evergreen perennial shrub that is native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found mainly in the coastal sage scrub habitat of Southern California and Baja California, on the western edges of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts.

Salvia apiana is widely used by Native American groups on the Pacific coast of the United States.

The white sage seeds was a main ingredient of pinole, a staple food. The Cahuilla harvested large quantities of the seed that was mixed with wheat flour and sugar for gruel or biscuits.

The leaves and stems were eaten by the Chumash and other tribes. Several tribes used the seed for removing foreign objects from the eye, similar to the way that Clary sage seeds were used in Europe.

A tea from the roots was used by the Cahuilla women for healing and strength after childbirth. The leaves are also burnt by many native American tribes, with the smoke used in different purification rituals.



Bon taux de germination après quelques semaines

Mes graines de sauge blanche ont très bien germées sous mini-serre.
Par contre il ne faut pas trop arroser.
