Also known as White sage, bee sage, or sacred sage. I grow it for making smudge sticks. Smudging to cleanse the atmosphere in a room or building, or to clear a space for meditation and spiritual practices has become popular in recent years. Based on a North American Indian tradition, you can adapt the smudging ceremony to suit your needs. I recommend using a feather to move the smoke around and an abalone shell to catch the ash.
Stevia (rebaudiana) is a plant native to South and Central America that belongs to the sunflower family (Asteraceae). Altogether there are 240 species of the Stevia plant in the world. It has been used as an alternative to sugar by the population of Paraguay and Brazil for about 500 years because the extract of the plant is up to 300 times sweeter than sugar.
In other words, you only need one or two leaves of it, to sweeten one cup of strong coffee or tea.
