Yerba Santa means "holy herb" and it is such an amazing healing plant. Yerba Santa helps to release emotional pain such as grief, depression, melancholy and despair that may be stuck in the Heart Chakra area. These emotions can impair flow of soul energy and using Yerba Santa can help one to release these energies, allowing the spiritual body to come back into balance. As an incense it’s also called “Portable Temple” because it will drive out negative influences and restores a guarded boundary of protection.
Yerba Santa is used in traditional smudging practices for protection, purification, healing, spiritual strength, courage, psychic abilities and finding your innermost self. This smudge variety is great for use during meditation, divination, or any time deep spiritual cleansing is desired.
We love to add this beautiful plant to other herbs and plants when smudging our space.
