With the discovery of fire, early humans began to notice that aromatic smoke was produced by burning dried plants. As herbs, roots, resins and barks are changed from their physical form (of this world), they are changed by the element of fire into smoke (spirit world form). This transformation is evidence of the spirit within substances. Throughout human history, aromatic plants have been used in the daily activities of people from every culture. In Catholicism, the use of incense is likened to one's prayer being kindled by fire in the heart, spoken by the lips resulting in the odour of Christ on the breath.

As time has passed, this connection between people and plants is being forgotten. We are drifting further and further away from the ways that connect us to the plant and animal spirits we share the earth with. We are losing our understanding of the physical things around us that connect us to the spirit of life. People native to Turtle Island (The Americas) understand that the influence of plant medicine is very real in their daily lives.

Smudging is a ceremony specific to the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island. Sacred herbs are tobaccos, sages, cedarwoods, and sweetgrass. If you are not a member of an indigenous tradition, you are not smudging.

Saining (Gaelic seun and sian and the Old Irish sén)is a Scots word for blessing, protecting or consecrating, and includes formal and informal rites using fire, smoke, water etc. Juniper and other herbs are burned in saining.
