Salvia apiana, the white sage, bee 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.

White sage, or Salvia apiana, is a mint herb that was widely used by ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Babylonians and Greeks. While there are many other plant species named “sage,” the majority of them belong to the Artemisia genus, such as mugwort. White sage is used to make incense due to its nice fragrance. Its medicinal uses include treating excess sweating, colds and sinus infections, and indigestion.

Willow bark reduces inflammation and makes an effective treatment for articular rheumatism.
