Salvia Apiana (white sage, bee sage, or sacred sage) is an evergreen perennial shrub native to the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found mainly on the coast of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts. Salvia Apiana is widely used by Pacific Coast Native American groups.
The Cahuilla women drink a tea from the roots for healing after childbirth. The leaves are also burned by many for smoke-based purification rituals.
A study performed at the University of Arizona in 1991 demonstrated that Salvia apiana possesses antibacterial properties.
