The practice of burning fragrant herbs and resins has been around a very long time with the practice of smudging originating in antiquity. It has since been and continues to be practiced by many cultures around the world. The Celts had a practice of “saining” that involved sprinkling water from a river or a stream, combined with burning juniper to bless and protect, or consecrate a home or person. Palo Santo wood is still used by Amazonian tribes for healing and in shamanic rituals. Catholics are familiar with the scents of burning frankincense and myrrh in church, a practice that dates back to the Old Testament. Smudging, though, is most associated with northern Native American traditions. Sage is not the only herb used in smudging ceremonies; cedar, tobacco, yarrow and sweetgrass are used as well.
