Harvest McCampbell explains the practice of smudging, or the burning of herbs, which has been and is an integral part of traditional Native American culture. Readers are encouraged and shown how to create their own personal healing rituals. Listed are 18 plants commonly used for smudging which are easily available either by purchase or harvesting in the wild. Each plant has information on their spiritual use, medicinal properties, growing pointers, and gathering tips, along with any cautionary notes around their use. Emphasis is also placed on how to communicate with and be respectful to plants.
