Hi Gil!! Yup,,Smudge Sticks,,the First People's use in ceremony and such,correct? Which to me is just an awesome use of the wonderful FREE bounty that Nature provides to help make our world a better place... I've been actually looking for some Sweet Grass braids to try,and actually want to know what kind of 'grass/plant' is used for that...I would love to collect my own..I think I've seen some for sale on the internet,not too bad a price either..thanks for providing the extra info back to me Gil! :))

Thank you very much for your great comment Mindi.
I do know the Gray Sagebrush has been used as a remedy, made into a tea of some sort. Tastes awful as far as I'm concerned.
Also some people cut the tops of it, the fluffy top ends, maybe 8 or 10 inches, and wrap them up tight with a string. I guess it's a string they tie them tight, and then burn them slowly. Very fragrant alright.
Don't know of any uses of the yellow Chamisa, other than a yard decor. May be other uses that I am not aware of.

Update: forgot to mention the bundled sagebrush are called Smudge Sticks.

Tee Hee,,,Lucky My,,Charisma,and Chamisa all in one lovely photo and comment thread!!! The 'a' on the end,is I believe a female spelling of the word I imagine..? So,that makes me wonder why the spelling...anyway,,GIL!!! You are such a dear and giving soul!! Thank You for this special photo gift and though!! I can see why they might have called it 'Spanish Sage'..as it does look a lot like the green..and I'll just bet it has a great fragrance about it as well...Puckerweed huh?? what a rather unpleasant name to call such a pretty plant! Must be like what,,mustard?? I would like to find the latin name for it,so I can see if it is/has been used as a medicinal/herbal remedy for anything out in your neck of the woods!
Do you ever notice and particular insects or birds frequenting this plant Gil?? I see you have some lovely sunflowers as well! We have them in full bloom also..So,,I shall 'pucker-up' up,,and give you a peck on the cheek for being so SWEET! Thank You Gil!:)) Love that every one has added extra info too! :-D Mindi

Thank you very much Katy. When I was growing up in NM, It was just called a Yellow Sagebrush, and the others were called Gray Sagebrush.
When I moved back to NM years later, It was not called Yellow Sagebrush, it was called Chamisa. The Spanish name for Sagebrush is Chamiso, but this was called & is called Chamisa. (a at the end instead of the o). Nobody ever consulted me on this matter.
