Kinnick Kinnick – a traditional, Native American Smoking Mix
Size: 1 ounce
Kinnick Kinnick is said to be a traditional smoking blend of the first Americans.
An immensely important part of Native American culture, the smoking of the ceremonial pipe still fascinates us today.
The magicians of American “Indian” heritage are medicine men. The terms magic, magick, spells, witchcraft, sorcery, etc, were to them, known as “medicine”.
A Possible Smoking Alternative
Some find it helpful to use this as a way of weening off tobacco products.
Warning: Smoking is known to cause health problems, even with a product such as this. While there is zero tobacco in it, zero nicotine, it’s still a foreign substance, entering your lungs.
Please use responsibly and minimally, for spiritual rituals only. Use infrequently and with caution.
Instead of Smoking
This product is typically for smoking in religious rituals. However, one need not inhale it, to make use of it as an offering. Here are some other suggestions for its use.
First, try placing some in a bowl and put and put it on your altar, as is.
Second, put a few pinches on a charcoal, during your ceremonies. It’s still going into the air, therefore you’re inhaling it but a vastly smaller amount.
Make sure (through research) that your particular Spirits or Deity like smoke, so they aren’t offended. Most Spirits like smoke but not all; know who you’re working with.
Finally, you can smoke it but just refrain from inhaling, the way you would with a cigar.
As we all know, it was a rather arrogant, lost, Spaniard (Columbus) who dubbed them “Indians”. He thought he was in India; sort of comical, really.
Still, I have yet to meet a Native American who takes offense at the term Indian. Conversely, I’ve met several who felt like the whole “Native American” thing was sort of silly.
Which term to use depends on who you’re speaking to. Ask them which they prefer to have you call them.
Cultures, races and individuals get to brand themselves… we don’t get to do it for them.
