Prairie sage and other native sages (not your cooking sage) are used for purification ceremonies, used sometimes daily to once in a blue moon, by some native american groups. Sweet grass and cedar are also commonly burned for smudging. Cedar is more for healing and sweet grass, I believe is more for celebration. A combination of the plants are also used. Many groups like the Anishinabe (Ojibway or chippewa) people used herbs instead of sweat lodges. Sweat lodges were adopted by them and other groups after the white man forced assimilation of different tribes.
