Sweetgrass is one of the main herbs used by Native people. It is often part of the medicine used when smudging along with sage and cedar. Sweetgrass is used for cleansing, positivity, and clear negativity. It represents Mother Earth and its connection to the land and what is around us. Its smell, when burned dry, is a sweet smell reminiscent of Native people. When braided, sweetgrass can represent love, peace, and the harmony of mind, body, and spirit.
