Native Americans have used white sage for centuries and continue to use it today.

White sage has been used traditionally to purify the mind, body and spirit before praying. Native Americans also used white sage in ceremonies of birth and death. Sacred objects such as pipes and eagle feathers were passed through the smoking of burning white sage in order to purify them.

KInnick-Kinnick - is a traditional Native American herbal smoking mixture of wild-crafted herbs, used in ceremonial pipes as an offering and for pleasure. Contains: Bear Berry, Mullein, Red Willow Bark, Osha Root, and Yerba Santa.

This healing herb has a prominent place in daily ritual and prayer as well as a place in aboriginal medicine. The active ingredient in Sweetgrass that makes it smell so wholesomely wonderful is coumarin. This compound is a strong anti-coagulant and is used to prevent bloodclots in susceptible persons - used in excess, however, it can damage the liver. Infusions of sweetgrass were drunk as well as being applied topically for different health reasons. It was even used to treat sick dogs. Interestingly, it was noticed that dogs loved to find patches of sweetgrass and roll around in it and this was used to the advantage of the person seeking the plant, much like pigs were used in the Old World to hunt truffles.
