This price is for one 5 - 6 inch mini braid of Sweetgrass.
These are from the 2019 Harvest and are really dry and fading so the price had been reduced to reflect that.
Sweetgrass has many ceremonial uses among most Indian tribes and if often used in conjunction with sage. Its smoke is used for prayer, cleansing and as a healing agent. White Sage is first burned to drive away any negative forces, then Sweetgrass is burned to summon positive ones. It is frequently used in Sweat Lodge ceremonies.
Sweetgrass holds an energy of blessing rather than cleansing and should be used to bring in positive energy after negativity has been released, rather than on its own. It is used as a smudging tool to purify peoples auras, cleanse objects, and clear ceremonial areas or healing spaces. Sweetgrass can also be carried or worn as a protective amulet.
Sweet grass is the sacred hair of Mother Earth; its sweet aroma reminds people of the gentleness, love and kindness she has for the people; this is why Native people pick it and braid it in 3 strands representing love, kindness and honesty. Sweetgrass is used for smudging and purification of the spirit. When Sweetgrass is used in a healing or talking circles it has a calming effect and is said to attract good spirits.
~How to Smudge~
For herbal bundles simply light the end on fire. Allow the bundle to burn for a moment and blow out the flame. The herb bundle will then smolder producing the smoke used to cleanse. Use a shell or heat proof plate to catch the falling ash.
