Sweetgrass Braid


Divine girl power

Ancient incense: sustainably harvested Sweetgrass. It is prayed upon when picking and braiding the Sweetgrass, prayers for the mind, body, and soul.

It is said to be the hair of Mother Earth and is a female medicine. There are 28 strands in a Sweetgrass braid to represent the female cycle. It is calming and soothing. Sweetgrass has a unique vanilla-like scent – one of the most beloved of all Western plants for smudging.

Sweetgrass is usually used after other medicines or clearing your space with white sage. It brings in positive energy to you and your space. It is also known to bring harmony amongst discord in your home. It has a deep feminine energy, with a soft, sweet scent. You can also burn it during prayer work to carry our prayers upon the smoke to the spirit realms.

How to use: Light the end of the Sweetgrass with a lighter or a match, and allow braid to smolder and fill your space with the sweet scent of the high plains. Relight as desired. Have a bowl of sand nearby to extinguish. Be careful with fire and never leave the burning smudge stick alone.

This braid is pure wildcrafted dried Sweetgrass (Hierochloe odorata) wrapped in organic cotton string and is 55 – 65 cm long.

How to smoke cleanse in a (nut)shell.

Open a window when you do indoor smoking so that the energy can flow away. Once you’ve cleansed a space, and the stagnant energy has been dispelled the space is left with a vacuum. At this point, it’s important to fill the space with the energy of love and white light. You don’t want your space filled with random energy that floats around, right?! You can burn your favourite incense, use an essential oil spray or light up a stick of fragrant Palo Santo and call in your desired energies.
