A natural healer, sweetgrass is burnt for healing purposes and to purify spaces. The smoke is thought to attract good spirits and positive energies. The plant has been used as a smudging tool since time immemorial - it is believed that by using the herb in this way, negative energy can be cleared from one's aura or ceremonial space.
Scent Notes: Unique vanilla-like scent - one of the most beloved of all Western plants for smudging.
How to Use: Light the end of the Sweetgrass with a lighter or a match, and allow the 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. Burn sweetgrass braid in a well-ventilated area. Always use with a fire-safe holder or bowl and place on a level, heat resistant surface. Ensure ash and embers are caught safely. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Consult a health care practitioner before use if you are pregnant or suffer from asthma or other respiratory issues. Never leave burning plants unattended.
