About Smudging

Smudge is a bundle of dried herbs and is used as a sacred medicine for ceremony. Smudging can help drive away negative spirits, shift energy, cleanse a person for healing, purify a home, sacred space, crystals or other sacred objects.

To smudge yourself, gentle fan the smudge smoke around your body, starting with your head and slowly down to your feet. To smudge a room walk slowly around it and fan the smoke around the outline of the room. While you smudge, set an intention and think only positive thoughts. Use a shell or fireproof vessel to prevent sparks or ashes from causing damage. To burn smudge, light the end of the smudge stick or loose dried leaves with a lighter and gently blow out the flame so that only smoke emanates from the smudge.

Sweetgrass burns slowly and can be mixed with sage, kinnikinnik or palo santo to extend the burn. Before burning sweetgrass, cut off the dry end and put it outside or in a sacred place. For very dry sweetgrass, you can rehydrate and intensify its smell by soaking in water and re-dry before burning.

Each purchase includes 1 sweet grass braid, a description of the sweet grass, and how to use it.

Variation

This is a natural product. Please expect some variation compared to the photo. The colour and size of each sweet grass braid may vary depending on what time of the year the sweet grass was harvested and on the length and strength of the growing season (ie. amount of rain, sun, floods, etc.). We hope that you will value this plant and the work that went into harvesting, drying, and braiding each piece. You will be most pleased if you overlook visual qualities such as colour and length and embrace each piece as unique.

    Beautiful, natural, fragrant sweetgrass

    Beautiful, natural, fragrant sweetgrass, very long braids at a very good price. Ordered just in time as I was able to exchange one braid for sacred tobacco leaves given to me by a new acquaintance. The seller is very friendly. Very happy with my purchase.

    Terrific product and client service!

    I ordered a sweetgrass braid. The shop owner was very, very prompt in acknowledging my order and shipping it. It arrived more quickly than I'd anticipated, which was very nice. The sweetgrass is so fragrant, I could smell it through the envelope. I'm very pleased with my purchase and plan to order more. Thanks so much!
