Sweetgrass Braid

  • 18-22” long Braid
  • Sweetgrass is often used in prayer, smudging or purifying. Often times in ceremony as it is considered a sacred plant. Braids often smolder rather than produce a flame when burned. It helps carry prayer as the elders once taught us while bringing in positive energies.
  • Densmore (1974) describes that among the Chippewa (Ojibwa), “young people, chiefly young men, carried a braid of sweet grass and cut off 2 or 3 inches of it and burned it for perfume. Young men wore two braids of sweet grass around their necks, the braids being joined in the back and falling on either side of the neck like braids of hair.”
