Sagebrush, Big Sagebrush, Common Sagebrush, Blue Sagebrush, or Black Sagebrush
Medical uses: Sagebrush was widely used by many native North American Indian tribes for a wide range of disorders. It is little used in modern herbalism, though it certainly deserves further investigation. The plant is antiseptic, digestive, disinfectant, febrifuge, ophthalmic, poultice and sedative. A decoction (boiling) of the leaves is used in the treatment of digestive disorders and sore throats. An infusion of the fresh or dried leaves is used to treat pneumonia, bad colds with coughing and bronchitis. It is used both internally and externally in the treatment of rheumatism. The crushed plant is rubbed on cuts, sores etc. Steeped leaves are applied to sore eyes. The plant is burnt in the house in order to disinfect it. An infusion of the leaves is used as a hair rinse, it treats dandruff and falling hair An infusion of the plant repels insects, it is also a disinfectant and so is used for washing walls, floors etc. A yellow to gold dye is obtained from the leaves, buds and stems combined.
Edible parts: leaves, seeds
Edible uses: Leaves are cooked. The subspecies A. tridentata vaseyana has a pleasant mint-like aroma whilst some other subspecies are very bitter and pungent. The leaves are used as a condiment and to make a tea. It can be roasted then ground into a powder and mixed with water or eaten raw. The seed is very small and fiddly to use.
Other uses: basketry, dyes, fiber, friction sticks, fuel, hair, paper, repellent, stuffing, and tinder. The fibrous bark is used for weaving mats, baskets, cloth etc., or as a stuffing material in pillows etc. and as an insulation in shoes to keep the feet warm. A fiber obtained from the inner bark is used for making paper. The fibers are about 1.3 mm long. A bunch of the leafy stems can be tied together and used as a broom. The shredded bark is a fine tinder for starting fires. The stems make good friction sticks for making fires. The seeds are used during celebrations because, when thrown into a fire, they explode like crackers.
