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 tea from the roots for healing after childbirth. The leaves are also burned by many for smoke-based purification rituals.

White sage is traditionally burned in an abalone shell. The symbolism being that this unites the 4 elements: the shell represents the water element, the sage represents the earth element, the fire element is the part smoldering leaf, and the smoke is the air element.

A study performed at the University of Arizona in 1991 demonstrated that Salvia Apiana has potential anti-bacterial properties against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Candida brassicae.
