Sweet Grass Braid - Smudging Herbs
Sweet grass is considered a sacred plant and is used by traditional healers as a smudging herb in order to attract good spirits and positive energy. As its name implies, Sweet Grass has a sweet aroma when burned and is ideally used after the bitter purification of sage. In the Native American tradition, it is often burned at the beginning of a prayer or a ceremony to attract positive energy. Sweet, natural, smoky
Use to purify one’s space or body and attract positive energy. Smudging is a spiritual purification process that can be thought of as a cleansing smoke bath that involves lighting the tip of the braid, gently blowing out the flame and placing it safely in a fireplace, allowing the smoke to fill your space and wash over your body. This practice is held sacred within the Native American culture as well as shamanism.
This braid is roughly 31” long, has a sweet aroma and burns slowly, enabling its smoke to carry its properties throughout a large room or even during and outdoor ceremony. Our braids are hand-harvested in the environmental, sustainable and traditional Native American method.
