Where Sage Grows~ The Land is Sacred. Where Sage is Offered~ All are Blessed

My passion is Ceremony and Sage. I love to create sacred space and help others create theirs. Most of my time is spent cultivating, harvesting, planting, and blending California's sages and evergreens (redwoods, cedar, pine) for ritual well-being. This keeps me close to the earth and to the traditions I love. My dream is to bring more of both to people everywhere. Sacred Land Sage offers special Plant Spirits, sacred tools, crystals/ stones to help us all keep connected to Earth, Spirit, the Elements, and our highest Sacred Selves.

Our purpose at Sacred Land Sage is based on a Cherokee story where Plant spirits told Creator that they would commit to helping humans by offering their lives as medicine for healing, to help humans find and keep their balance. By offering sages indigenous to North, Central, and South America with a long tradition of Sacred use- our mission is to provide a variety of cleansing plants ideal for small, simple, rituals that bring Joy and Peace.

For over 28 years, I've made my own ceremonial sage blends, gathered from special places, and times of the year. I believe the saying "We are not humans having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." I also believe that practices of stillness, enjoying nature, and rituals like Smudging~ are practices of staying whole and keeping our spiritual roots~ whatever they may be.

What is Smudging?
Humans evolved with plants, learning to utilize them for food, medicine and well-being since the beginning of time. Because plants were on the planet first, they are considered wiser than humans. Cultures on every continent included Plants as offerings in their sacred practices. "Smudging" is a word used to describe the Native Peoples practice of burning sage/herbs for cleansing, blessing, offering, prayer, and creating Sacred Space. Traditionally it was the use of ash and smoke to embellish one's scent, while cleansing one’s self, space, and energy- for prayer and invocation. In many cultures, offering the scent of a sacred plant, allegedly sweetens a human's offering to Creator! Whether offering sage or scent, or our best intentions- Smudging is a long, and special tradition practiced by ancient peoples across the Americas for over 50,000 years and counting.

*Sacred Land Sage offers sages/wood/evergreens, resins, and smudge supplies (bowls, shells). When I can, I make feather fans for Blessing Bowl ritual. (I can tailor a Smudge kit that is ideal for your Celebrations, rituals, and House Blessings when I am home and not out harvesting!).

Our sages are fresh because they are locally harvested and they are always beautifully presented. Smudging offers a way to connect to the earth with ancient tradition via sacred and ceremonial sages, woods, resins, and herbs- all carefully sourced, and respectfully collected, just as they were thousands of years before us.
**********************************************************************
I am a 1-woman shop who grows some varieties of sages and plants native to Northern California (Black Sage, Bee Sage, White Sage) plus Lavender, Rosemary, and Yarrow), and I work with professional "bundlers" for the rest. Occasionally I get help from students/friends/ family. When we are out collecting and gathering in the wider world, my dog Chula is our protector.

If you need a personal consultation (more than one email)- please consider booking a session~ either 30 min or a full hour session. I can help you match the best sages, and stones and crystals, to your Life, Milestone or Blessing Bowl Ritual.

Sacred Land Sage PRESERVES Native Sages!
>>>NEW Native Sage Re-Planting Program<<<<
*Your Purchase Keeps our local California native Sages thriving!**
Because of the high demand for Calif White Sage and the impact on our local plants, Sacred Land Sage has started a Native Sage Re-Planting Program to keep our local White Sage abundant. Your purchase buys plants, and pays people to plant them back in the wild. 15% of All sales in the shop purchase new Salvia Apiana plants, which we plant across the Northern and Central California in public, open spaces.

*You can keep native sages thriving in your area as well*
Every continent has its own native sages. Sadly, growing populations are causing habitat to shrink for our native plants. Helping is easy!! Simply plant sages in your own garden, yard, and neighborhood! Sages are an ideal plant; they are independent spirits, generally deer and drought resistant, attract bees and hummingbirds, are beautiful with mostly purple and lavender flowers. Once rooted, sages take very little care or attention. Planting your own sages will help us all keep a sustainable supply. It will also enable you to bundle your own plants that you have nurtured and grown yourself.

Additional policies and FAQs
Mother Nature Varies: size of bundles varies by season: in the spring/summer- plants are plump and well-watered. White sage Bundles and Sweet Grass Braids are naturally smaller at the end of the season- late summer, fall, winter. Please allow for this Natural variability: we cannot harvest more than the mother plants will allow.

Rains ALWAYS lengthen the time it takes to dry sage (and may extend shipping). Mother Nature is the Boss!! ;)

*Custom Orders: I LOVE to help customers find the right herb bundles and crystals for their ceremony. IF I'm not harvesting or traveling, I can put together a custom order and listing for you. Just convo me on etsy.

CUSTOMS: Please allow 3-5 days to finalize an order, and another 3-5 days to make it from scratch; It always takes a couple of days of email exchanges between us to get all details. Plus, I can only take so many custom orders /week.

If you need a longer personal consult (than one email), please consider booking a longer consultation to discuss your specific situation via my website.
Thank you!
