QuestionOne Sad White Sage

I hope I'm in the right place for this post if I'm not please forgive me.

Over a year ago I started a white sage plant from seed it did amazing and grew pretty fast and has been extremely healthy living in a pot.
Around August I saw that it needed to be moved into a larger pot so I did and after it was moved it branched out and was happy. Once it started getting cold I would bring it inside during the night to keep it safe just in case it froze. Once winter hit i just left it inside the house in the window which it loved.

About a week of being inside 24/7 it started to grow like crazy it had beautiful green branches and leaves and then all the sudden the top started dying off and the branches started going limp and everything is began to dry and die I have no idea what's going on its planted it potting soil for cacti and I don't over-water. It still lives on the windowsill which it loves or loved. I attached some pictures to show what it looks like now. If anyone has any suggestions I would love to know! Thank you for reading my post.

To me (and i'm no expert) it looks like it is not getting enough light. How many hours of daylight is it getting? It also looks like what light it is getting is too strong ( or hot)
I think I found the truth, problem is it makes no sense....

Aw, us plant people hate to see one of our "babies" struggle, don't we?

I don't have any good ideas about what went wrong -
aravenschild may be right about the sunlight, or perhaps there's a draft from a nearby heating vent
(I learned the hard way how much damage that can do ) -
to be honest, sometimes a plant just poops out on me and I never do figure out why
- but -
as I look at your pictures, I can't help thinking that if that were my plant, I would probably be trying to root some cuttings in the hope of replacing it just in case it gets worse, or even dies.

Good luck

Keep Love Growing
