Home Blessings, Healing, Relaxation, Attracts Positive Energies
Spiritual Uses: Associated with The Moon & Venus. Useful for healing, peace, and spirituality in many Native cultures, and braids of Sweetgrass are sometimes left as offerings at graves and sacred sites.
Sweetgrass Braid (Hierochloe odorata), also known as Holy Grass, is a long, hardy herb with a sweet vanilla-like scent and is native to Europe and North America. Many Native American tribes use Sweetgrass in prayer, smudging, and purifying ceremonies, or simply for its pleasant aroma. It is considered a sacred plant, and the smoke from the sweetgrass is thought to attract positive energies. This dried herb is rolled into tight braids which do not burn, but rather smolder like incense. The leaves, which can reach two feet in length, can also be woven to make baskets.
Our Sweetgrass Braids come from ethical Wildcrafters, and are gathered in a responsibly, ecologically sound, and respectful way. The plants were not harmed and nothing was wasted.
