Salvia Mellifera, also known as black sage or Mugwort, is a well-known and widely used product among indigenous people of Central America, also known as the Natives, especially in shamanism. It is part of the purification ceremonies where these spicy plants are smoldered and their holy smoke is released. It stimulates the gain of visions and expels negative energy as well as bad entities. Scientific research has even shown that 94% of the bacteria in the room have been broken down after burning this herb.
So black sage is a purification method that also changes your state of consciousness. It is produced from the Artemisia vulgaris plant, which grows on the coast of Mexico and California.
