Sage is used for cleansing, to dispel negativity, evil spirits and intents,
to purify, to release ghosts to the spirit world and to cleanse past
occupants from a new home. A combination of sage, sweetgrass, and tobacco is
used when seeking visions. Juniper especially is the favourite of the
Thunderbird (called Wakinyan by Lakotas), who protects the 4 winds and
weather. The Thunderbird is a book in itself, but for general purposes, it
sweeps newness and freshness in with the winds. Don't forget to burn juniper
during a thunderstorm for the Thunderbirds pleasure.
Since the list left some out ... Including important ones I've always
been told to use, I'm adding them here ...

Cedar ~ invites positive energy, purification
Cypress ~ comfort, healing, protection
Dragons Blood ~ protection, exorcism
Juniper ~ invites positive energy,
Sweetgrass ~ invites good spirits, balance, offering

Black Pepper is a protective fragrance that when used with the right
Intent, allows our guardian angels to bring protective elements into
Our lives.
