Cedar Boxes

Shopping  <   Smudging

Pine Ridge Lakota Smudging Box Paula says - "Cedar is a natural repellent to moths and other insects so the interior is left untreated to allow the cedar aroma to be released. If the aroma of your box fades over the years you can refresh it by lightly sanding the interior.

"These boxes were made in the USA. The grain pattern of cedar wood is beautiful and varied - each box will be slightly different from the one pictured. Any of these cedar boxes will give you many years (or generations) of service!"

Cedar Medicine

Cedar Medicine (Hante Pejuta - Lakota) is an important part of Lakota belief and ritual. Cedar is used for purifying, cleansing, and smudging. It is part of an herbal blend smoked in ceremonial pipes, particularly to please Wakinyan (Winged-One or Thunderbird). To protect one from lightning (said to be sent by Wakinyan) cedar is burned, not to repel Wakinyan but out of respect.

Cedar is also burned on the coals during a sweat for its purification characteristics.

Cedar boxes are the traditional way to store herbs and other medicine, feathers, fans, flutes and other ceremonial objects.
