Most commonly used by the Californian Native Americans, where the herb grows prevalently. Medicinally, white sage is an antibacterial and antioxidant, which makes it helpful for colds and flus. Its high eucalyptol content helps to clear congestion. Typically administered as a tincture, tea, or inhalation steam bath for its therapeutic effects. Seeds are difficult to germinate, with rates as low as 20-30% and taking about 25 days to pop up. Sprinkle seeds across surface of soil and mist them with a spray bottle in full sun around 70-80 degrees. Plant in sandy extremely well draining soil in full sun. Height 6 inches tall.
