Size: 1 lb / 16 ounce bag (450 grams)
Size of box: About 28 x 20 x 20 cm
Country of origin: California, USA
This box consists of white sage clusters combined with some smaller leaves. The quality is great. It is harvested environmentally (see below for more info on Juniper Ridge and their excellent methods).
The clusters range in size from smaller ones with just a few leaves on up to much larger pieces. Included also are some single leaves, but these are more the minority.
We bring in large amounts of this white sage and repackage into these boxes. If you have not bought white sage before we'd advise buying a 1 lb bag or a smudge stick first. These boxes are really for those that know they burn a lot, or for gatherings or to share with friends.
The smell of the sage in the box is divine, and the box helps to keep the sage fresh. The box itself is really a standard cardboard box. Nothing fancy. But we use a box rather than a bag to help protect the sage once we send it.
Dictionary Terms Explained
Californian White Sage
- Cleansing, purifying
The home of Californian white sage (Salvia Alpine), a scrub plant with spiky flowers, is along the sun-washed coastline of Southern California.
Sage is a cleansing and purifying herb and can be used to help break up feelings of negativity. Traditionally, it's regarded as being able to open people up and bring about the ability to have a greater connection with the sacred world.
Its properties make it ideal for use in cleansing and clearing ceremonies of people, places and objects, as well as for meditation or prayer. People wanting to build a closer spiritual connection may also benefit from burning or carrying the herb.
Juniper Ridge started as a company at a farmers market at Berkeley, California in 1998. And everything they make comes from the mountains or the deserts of western USA.
Juniper Ridge are obsessed with natural aromatics and also obsessed with the preservation of the wilderness. All of their aromatics and herbs come from the wild and are always sustainably and responsibly harvested. They donate 10% of their profits to defending western wildernesses.
They never kill the plants they harvest. They instead prune larger shrubs and trees that respond well to pruning. They often revist the same plants as previous years to check up on them.
For the sages they always trim the clusters at the green stem, above the woody section. Harvesting this way means two or three new clusters will appear the next year where you harvested one.
