Yerba Santa means ‘holy herb’ in Spanish. Historically it has been used by Native American cultures to cure a range of ailments from coughs and colds, to asthma and bruises.

It was also used in traditional smudging practices and rituals to increase a person’s connection with a higher power, as it works to open the crown chakra.

The Spanish missionaries came across this herb when they went to California and it quickly became revered by Spanish Priests for its ability to heal the body and spirit, as well as increase psychic awareness.

It has also been regularly used as an altar offering which is said to provide spiritual protection for the home.

To increase the power and effectiveness of any smudging ceremony or meditation practice, consider adding a prayer to solidify your intentions. Here is an example of a beautiful native American prayer to encourage spiritual growth and inner confidence:

“Earth teach me freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.
Earth teach me regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.
Earth teach me to forget myself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me to remember kindness
as dry fields weep with rain.”
-Ute Prayer

There are no rules when it comes to prayers; they can be long or short. Something as simple as:

“I pray for the strength and positive energy.”

Yerba Santa is an incredibly sacred herb with a range of uses from medicinal to spiritual. If you are ever feeling lost or despondent in life, this herb will help you to find the power within yourself to go after your dreams, and will assist you in finding your true purpose.
