Excellent post. I have wondered as one who has no Native American ties, but who lives in a location of PA that has have had heavy Native American influence (down to towns and rivers for example being named after them), how I would be perceived for using herbs and oils that were often used by the Natives, for clearing, because that is what seems to work best for this area. I happened to find out about this through much trial and error. I am not about to stop using something that works, just because some folks are going to scream “cultural appropriation” at me. For all I know, using what I use, seems to be compatible (for obvious reasons) to the energies of the Natives here in the Susquehanna region.
