The Native Americans also use sweetgrass for making the floors of their tents smell nice, and as part of ceremonial clothes. In Northern Europe (chiefly Russia), sweetgrass is recognized as Mary’s Grass and was scattered on church steps for Saints’ Days. It is also recognized as Zebrovka, Seneca Grass, Holy Grass, and Buffalo Grass. Sweetgrass is extensively used by native peoples, particularly in groups of the Great Plains, as incense in holy rituals.
Lovely sweetgrass braids from Canada. These are collected by First Nations families for us each year (“First Nations” is the Canadian comparable of “Native American”). Sweetgrass is well thought to be sacred by numerous peoples of North America. The smoke of burning sweetgrass is said to cleanse and clear things, people and places.

The braids are retailed separately. The price mirrors the cost of 1 braid, which is around 24″ in length (since this is a natural product, dimensions will differ)
