Welcome to Mountain View, California
One of our postings about Smudging.
Does smudging get rid of good spirits also?
Posting like this one keeps coming up on my tracker so I would like to keep with my answering.
Remember that you are as far west as you can get without getting your feet wet and I am as far east as I can get without getting my feet wet, with thousands of tribes in-between.
However, you did come to my tracker looking for an answer so I will give the best answer as it applies to our people over on the East coast.
First if I may, the tribes over on this coast did not use Sage or sweet grass until a visit to tribes over in the plains.
Our ancestors use herbs called (Kinnick-Kinnick).
