In the moist meadows and along the shady mountain canyons of North America, you’ll find a long time healer, one that possesses the powers to fill a room with soothing positivity. This healer is known to the modern earth as Sweetgrass. For centuries this sweet, vanilla scented grass has been burned, braided, inhaled and created-into by our Native Ancestors of these great North America’s.
#1 – Sweetgrass + Sage have a close relationship
Sweetgrass’ scientific genus, “Hierochloe Odorata”, literally means ‘fragrant holy grass’ and it is believed to welcome good spirits with its long-lasting vanilla aroma. Acting as a sort of Yin to Sage’s Yang, when burned in unison, the two complement one another immeasurably.
As Sage wanes away the evil spirits, cleansing a living being or space, Sweetgrass welcomes in positivity and reduces stress, allowing your mind and body to relax and any anxieties or tensions to drift away.
#2- It is deeply rooted in the History of Ancient Medicine and Culture
Braiding Sweetgrass is a long used form of binding the pieces, for smudging and incense purposes. Beyond this its long strands have been used to create baskets and mats by Indigenous People, their scent is said to hold for years and years to come after fruition. Bringing positivity and relief wherever its aroma can be sensed.
Medicinally its smoke has been used to help treat the common cold and its many afflictions. When dried up and mixed with herbal blends to make a tea, it can assist in the treatment of coughs, sore throats, fevers and venereal diseases.
#3- It has a Multitude of Uses
We highly enjoy using it for hot coal incense, blending into our herbal smokes, infusing it into wine and foods and so much more. Captivating the energy in any way has immense benefits!

#4- Sweetgrass is rooted in Gift Culture
Gift Culture is based on the economic branch of gift giving. The natives and Indigenous People of North America used this structure for centuries, and their children and cultures still actively participate in the idealism of gifts. Gift culture is beautiful due to its possession to create bonds that are not rooted in expectancy, instead in love and kindness.
I think in times like this, we could all use a little more of that.
