This amazing plant medicine arrived in a small bundle in my Apothecary Garden 2 years ago. I planted her in ceremony, nurtured and relieved her appetite, I quenched her thirst and deeply respected her. As I still do to this day and always will.
Sweet Grass in exchange enthralled me with her first harvest. I am so very excited to offer to you these Organically Grown, harvested by the calling of Full Moon, and braided in Ceremony and Song

Regarded by the Native American Tradition as one of the four Sacred Medicines. Sweet Grass is called the hair of Mother Earth and holds a female energy. (Planetary Correspondence ~ Venus) It is used in medicine by both men and women, and usually used after other medicines. It is calming and soothing. There are 28 strands in a Sweetgrass braid to represent the female cycle. The 3 strands of 7 blades of grass each represent the Mind, Body & Spirit

In smudging & Sacred Smoke Ceremony, it is customary to braid Sweet Grass and to burn the braid from the tip to the roots. This may be done to salute the four directions, during funerary rites to release the spirit, or at any time that one wishes to bring about purification, harmony, peace, and uplift.
