Prairie Sage springs up naturally on dry slopes, canyons, open woods, and dry prairies. Its silvery foliage is a food source for animals such as grouse, jackrabbits, antelope, and pronghorn. This plant was one of the most commonly used by Native American tribes, who had numerous medicinal and ceremonial purposes for prairie sage. Burning dried bundles of sage was believed to have a cleansing effect, and took place at the start of traditional ceremonies as well as in sweat lodges. Infusions of the leaves often benefited sore throat or stomach cramps, while breathing in the vapors brought relief for respiratory problems. Interestingly, prairie sage belongs to an entirely different plant family than culinary sage; the FDA has classified prairie sage as unsafe for internal use, since it contains substances that can be dangerous in large doses.
