Sustainably & respectfully grow your own traditional spiritual (smudging) plants. Includes: Sweet Grass, White Sage, Prairie Sage, Chaparral, Rosemary, Lavender & Mugwort. There are many uses for these vital plant allies and a staple in a witches garden!

Sweetgrass (Anthoxanthum odoratum) ~ Like woodruff, it has a sweet vanilla aroma that is released when dried or wilted. A tincture of its flowers in wine is said to give immediate relief from hay fever. Loves full sun. Blooms July & August. It produces flowering shoots and bladed grass up to 1m tall.

White/Sacred Sage (Salvia apiana) ~ One of the most popular Native American sacred herbs used for ceremonial purposes. Smudging is done by drying, bundling and burning the herb to purify the surroundings of negative spirits. Medicinally, white sage is an antibacterial and antioxidant, which makes it helpful for colds and flu. 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.

Prairie Sage (Salvia azurea) ~ Tall azure-blue sage of the American prairies with aromatic, astringent, and tonic properties. It was once used for fever and malaria. Herbalists today use it as a detoxifier, especially in support of Lyme disease and other chronic illnesses. Ht. 90-120cm/3-4ft.

Chapparal (Larrea tridentata) ~ Blooms with delightful bright yellow flowers. Cultivated chaparral leaves can be prepared into salves, poultices, soaks, which can be used to heal minor skin infections. Although Native Americans have used chaparral to treat a wide variety of conditions, its main use was for the treatment of inflammation, rheumatism and viruses. Prefers sandy or loamy, moderately fertile soil. Plant in full sun. Suitable for xeriscaping as it is drought tolerant.

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) ~  Rosemary is said to be beneficial for memory when used medicinally. It has also been researched for its role in reducing obesity, hyperglycemia, and cardiovascular disease. The oils have anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-microbial properties and can even be used to repel bugs! Rosemary should be pruned often to promote regeneration. Multiple shoots of new growth stem from trimmed stems. Pruning shapes young plants, and over time supplies an abundance of fresh yield for cooking or processing. Ht 3-8ft (90-240cm). Spread 3-8ft (90-240cm).

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) ~  Lavender-blue flower spikes are bluer and earlier in bloom time than most other varieties! Aromatic narrow green foliage with a compact mounding growth habit. Like any other variety, Munstead Lavender must be located in full sun and planted in well drained alkaline sandy soil, ideally in a raised bed or rock garden as it is prone to root rot if conditions are too wet. Perfect for borders, rock gardens, containers and as mass plantings. After the second year of growth, begin pruning once or twice a year, cutting back a third of its foliage. This will help maintain its shape, leaf and flower production as well as prevent woodiness. Bloom time July and onward. Height 12-18 inches.

Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris) ~ A bitter herb and can be used as a digestive tonic due to its carminative action, stimulating digestive enzymes and reducing bloating. Bitter flower buds improve digestibility of rich meat, poultry or fish dishes. It is also a nervine that can help ease tension, nervousness and depression, also aiding in deep sleep. Due to its estrogenic activity, mugwort has an affinity for the female reproductive system as an emmenagogue, stimulating menstrual flow. Its traditional use for hyperactive gut and airway disorders has been reinforced by research showing its action as an antispasmodic on smooth muscle receptors. Interestingly enough, its insect repellent properties have been recently studied. Never use while pregnant. Sow into alkaline, well-drained, loamy soil, as mugwort is susceptible to root rot. Ht 2-6ft (60-180cm).
