Health & Fitness
Sweet Grass has the most sacred usage’s of all the purification herbs. It is a seasonal plant and grows only in certain places. Sweet grass is used primarily for the blessing of one’s self.
It is placed in a shell or a bowl and burned, similar to incense. The smoke gives forth a very pleasant smell. When people engage in the ceremony of blessing ones self, he/she holds the bowl of burning herb and slowly moves it around in a continuous circle surrounding the body from head to foot with swirling smoke. Sweet Grass is often used for purification during sweat lodge ceremonies.
It is used for smudging “(blessing-down)” and cleansing our homes, protecting them from evil spirits. It is also used to purify all of our sacred prayer instruments.
Medicinally, it is used as a portion of a combination of other herbs in a special formulated “medicine tea” which flushes the impurities out of the body.
Sweet grass is very calming and relaxing to the user who is taught to use it in a traditional and respectful manner. The sacred herb, sweet grass, is used in all phases of healing by the doctoring healer.
Cedar & Juniper
There are several different types of these sacred herbs. They are found all over this great land. To some tribes, Cedar is considered the “tree of life” because it withstands the four elements year round no matter how harsh the seasons are. These herbs are used extensively in all sacred ceremonies, cleansing, healing, and doctoring methods. It makes an excellent tea for the purpose of flushing out the system.
Sage has a variety of uses. When burned, it has a pungent odor. Sage is used principally for smudging but can also be used in cleansing and the blessing down of our homes and vehicles. It is commonly used in medicine tea to flush ones system of all impurities. Along with tobacco and other substances, sage is part of a mixture used in the sacred smoking of the pipe.
There are may varieties of sage. However, in many places, the natural supply of sage is dwindling.
This is due, in part, to people harvesting sage in order to sell it to the general public. In recent years, there seems to be an increase in the fascination with the use of sage burning.
In sweat lodge ceremonies, sage is used to sit on and represents part of the plant world. It is also burned in smudge pots.
The herb is widely used in many of our sacred ceremonies including but not limited to lodges, drum circles, healing and doctoring.
