Yerba Santa Sacred Herb


Use to promote peace and understanding, to heal emotional upsets, and for protection against dis-ease.

Yerba Santa in Spanish means holy herb, and is found in the southwest mountains of North America. It has been valued and used for generations by the Western Tribes for spiritual and medicinal purposes. It is used widely for smudging in healing rituals, as it is thought to counteract the negative energies that can cause dis-ease.

How to use sacred herbs and resins

Place a charcoal disc on a fireproof surface away from anything flammable. A ceramic or metal dish containing some sand is ideal.
Hold a match or a lighter to the rim of the disc, taken care as the disc may spit and spark on ignition. Also allow a good air flow around the disc so that it can burn evenly, and be aware that it may give off quite a lot of smoke.
Once the disc is red hot and glowing, drop a pinch of the incense on the top.
Scrape off the ashes from time to time to expose the glowing centre of the charcoal disc and add more incense as required.
NEVER hold a lit disc in your hand, and dispose of spent discs carefully.
