Sweetgrass

Sweetgrass Braids

Sweetgrass Braids

Hierochlöe odorata

Beautiful sweetgrass braids from Canada. These are collected by First Nations families for us each year ("First Nations" is the Canadian equivalent of "Native American"). Sweetgrass is considered sacred by many peoples of North America. The smoke of burning sweetgrass is said to purify and clear objects, places, and people. Often found in medicine bundles and sometimes packed with dance clothes to keep them fresh.

For 2014-2015, we have three grades/styles available:

  • Our select braids are very fine quality and quite large, averaging about 24 inches with some as long as 30 inches. They are approximately 1 inch in diameter and 1 ounce by weight.
  • Our extra long select braids are very fine quality and average 32-38 inches. They are approximately 1 inch in diameter and 1¼ ounces by weight.
  • Our regular braids are about 24-28 inches and about ¾ inch in diameter. This grade is nicer than what we have had in previous years.

 As all of our braids are hand-picked and braided, there is always variation.

Sweetgrass - Loose

Sweetgrass - Loose

Hierochlöe odorata

Loose sweetgrass from Canada. This is the same sweetgrass that is used to make our braids. Loose sweetgrass is sometimes used for making baskets. We put some in a tall jar to see what kind of display we could make and found that it would make a dramatic addition to a dried flower or herbal arrangement. Lengths vary, but it is generally around 24 inches long. Two ounces is about the same amount of sweetgrass as in two of our select braids. Supplies are always limited on this item.
