Sweetgrass assists in bringing in positive energy. Spraying this around your home or sacred space after using Sage Smudge Spray aids in bringing a higher energetic vibration to the area. Its main focus is to bring in positive energies to aid in meditation, intuitive work, body work and anywhere else a positive energetic environment is desired.
Spray on your body or in your environment. This is my favourite to use as a room freshener Smells sweet and fresh, with the added bonus of attracting positive energy! It’s slightly earthy vanilla like scent makes a wonderful body spray too.
Sweetgrass: Is used by almost all Aboriginal peoples in North America. It is a ritual cleansing. The smoke rises, as our prayers rise above us to our Creator, the Grandfathers, and the Spirit World. Sweetgrass was one of the four original “medicine plants” given by the Creator to the first peoples.
We were taught that it was good to burn sweetgrass after the sage or cedar had driven out the bad influences. Sweetgrass brings in the good spirits and the good influences. High Hollow Horn says in the The Sacred Pipe “This smoke from the sweetgrass will rise up to you, and will spread throughout the universe. Its fragrance will be known by the wingeds, the four-leggeds, and the two leggeds, for we understand that we are all relatives; may all our brothers be tame and not fear us!” Sweetgrass is also put in pipe bundles and medicine bundles along with sage to purify and protect sacred objects.
Sweetgrass is very rare today, its territory severely cut by development, cattle-grazing, and wheat fields – and tradition Indians in the northern Plains are trying to protect the last remaining fields. We grow our own sweetgrass, protecting the wild areas from depletion.
