Acknowledging these uses, Ken and Ellen took advantage of the sage on their land and turned it into a business! They have a small shop which carries a variety of white sage cosmetics as well as hand-dyed clothing items created by Ellen! I purchased a white sage soap bar with a loofah attached to one side. What a brilliant idea! Talk about great exfoliation combined with simple, yet effective ingredients!
Cosmetics and clothing aren't their only business practices though. Making even further use of their land, they have turned their back-country backyard into a campground! Check out their Hip Camp page provided in the link above if you are interested in camping here. We checked out the camping grounds a little and found a ton of small caves, rock shelters, mortars and wind art. I can only imagine what else is out there as we explored very little.
Look out for this sign when driving, then turn onto the road:
Here's a shot of Ellen with her creations. This lady is quite a force!
Ellen and her husband, Ken:
Check out this AMAZING painting she made! Talk about detail!
There were even some morteros in the shelter!
