SWEET GRASS BRAID
This fragrant grass is native to the plains of North America. The Plains Indians have long deemed it sacred and used it for ceremony and ritual purposes. According to Native American tradition, Sage is burnt first to banish negative energies and followed by Sweet Grass to attract the attention benevolent spirits. Hold the braid above the flame to release the sweet, pungent smoke. Ideal for meditation.
Since people first came together to honour the Gods and spirits of nature they used gums, resins and fragrant herbs to bring them closer to the divine beings and to give fragrant wings to their prayers. Every culture has their own sacred herbs that are particular to its region, yet, precious incense herbs and gums have also always been traded far beyond their country of origin.
