The Finest Incense, Creams, Bath Salts and Oils in the Cosmos

Western Grey Sage


Western Grey Sage (ARTEMESIA TRIDENTATA) Bundles 7" to 9" long x 1 3/4" to 2 1/2" dia.

Used as either a medicinal remedy or as a ceremonial herb, sage has always played an essential role in Native American beliefs and tradition. The dynamic Artemisia ludoviciana, known also as prairie sage or grey sage, is considered sacred by the Native American culture for its inherent healing properties.

This herb is believed to cure a broad spectrum of ailments including headaches, fevers, arthritis and allergies.  Grey sage has been commonly used for colds and respiratory problems - used as a tea, inhaled as a steam vapor, or added to baths to relieve muscle aches.

This prairie herb has also been used as a cleansing tonic to assist in liver and kidney functions.  Sage is reported to have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, as well.

Many people find sticks the most convenient way to burn incense. The lighter colored sticks are wood base formed over bamboo stick and burn from 35 to 45 minutes depending on the fragrance. The darker sticks are pre-burnt wood base, (charcoal); they burn a little faster, but burn cleaner and produce a truer-to-fragrance. We also have a wood base stick that is formed without the bamboo stick (Japanese style).

Other people find cones to be their preference as a way to burn incense. The cones are wood base (natural). 1" cones burn approx 12 to 18 minutes while the 2" cones will burn 25 to 35 minutes. However most people prefer the 1" cone over the 2" cone in that it will create the desired effect.

Astral Sea makes and packages 6 varieties of packaged incense sticks and 4 varieties of incense cones. Most of our products can be found packaged or bulk.

Then there are powders which are sometimes seen as the connoisseur incense but more often it's for ritual use. Timeless Traditions and Chakra Gem Incense Powders are both self burning while our Rituals of Life and, Circles of Light are to be burned over charcoal.
