The high quality of Ancient Purity’s Yerba Santa Incense provides a completely natural and beneficial fragrance experience. Yerba Santa is a herb native to the Western United States. It was traditionally used by North American shamans for spiritual and medicinal healing purposes.  It is considered having health-improving properties with regards to respiratory conditions. The incense also functions as a soother of the ambience.  In Mexican and Native American healing traditions, herbal Yerba Santa Incense was burnt to chase away negative spirits which were believed to be the cause of sickness and misfortune. Also known as... Gum Bush, Mountain Balm, Sacred Herb and Sacred Weed.

Yerba santa has a lengthy history of being used medicinally and was initially used by Native Americans. Spanish settlers named the plant yerba santa due to its medicinal qualities. It is also an ingredient in certain over-the-counter natural products. However, its usefulness is not proven for any health issues. Therefore, yerba santa shouldn’t be used without supervision from your physician. Yerba santa can be used to lower temperature and to loosen phlegm. In its herb form, not incense, it can also be applied to your skin to treat bruises, sprains, rheumatic joint pain, wounds, and insect bites. It is an ideal incense / smudge stick to purify your home and clear your head.

Toni Corelli states in her book "Flowering Plants of Edgewood Natural Preserve" that not solely was Yerba Santa Incense used for respiratory difficulties, but also for urethral irritation and chronic gastritis. These findings are also well documented in Michael Moore's book "Medicinal Plants of the Pacific West". Toni continues writing about the incense’s use as a poultice being applied to wounds to reduce swelling, as a help in mending fractured bones as well as for relieving aches. Another reference reports the sticky leaves were used binding wounds before the time of sterile bandages. Traditionally used as an incense or smudge for protection and setting boundaries, the sacred Yerba Santa has also been used for beauty, love, growth, purification and empowerment, and for releasing emotional pain present in the heart chakra.

Revered across lands

The herb, also known as bear's weed, consumptive's weed, gum bush, and mountain balm, is still primarily used for respiratory congestion, either from acute asthma, colds, or coughs. When used externally for bruises, mosquito bites, or sprains, yerba santa can be applied as a poultice. The herb also used as a tonic to cleanse the blood, tone the nervous system, stimulate the mind, and control the appetite.

It is also believed to enhance the action of other herbs when used in combination. It has a sweet, slightly bitter taste. As practiced by generations of these native people, the pointed end of the smudge bundle, while held over a bowl of sand, is ignited. Blowing on the glowing surface will provide the fragrant smoke. Saying a prayer for someone special or in need, while gently wanding the bundle around the area, will enhance the enjoyment of this ancient sacred ritual. After smudging extinguish the lighted embers by rubbing in the bowl of sand.
