Sweetgrass is a type of grass, not an herb. These sweet grass braids are long, tightly braided, & have a distinct, vanilla-like scent, although to some, the aroma is more like that of a freshly mown lawn or a bale of freshly cut hay. The leaves of the sweetgrass plant are sturdy but very fine, almost hair-like, which is why it’s often braided.
They are often used for smudging and their sweet smell is very pleasing. Use Sweetgrass after our White Sage Sticks to bring peace and positive energry.
Always be safe while smudging, never leave unattended while burning. Braids average in size from 14 - 17 inches. All measurements are approximate.
