Dictionary Terms Explained
- Purification, prayer
Sweetgrass (Hierochloe odorata) can be found growing in the Plains of the United States, as well as in some areas of Alberta in Canada. It's a distinctive green grass, being tall in stature with wide blades and a reddish tone at its base.
It's got similar properties to sage, popularly being used as a purifier of places, objects and people to encourage positive energy and dispel old and negative vibes. It was often used in Native American sweat lodge ceremonies, where the sweet scented herb was sprinkled onto the hot rocks to improve the energy inside the lodge and fill the air with a sweet aroma.
Traditionally it was plaited into long braids - ideal for using during cleansing, prayer and smudging - and is still often found sold like that today. Belief has it that when sweetgrass is burned, a prayer is sent to heaven on the smoke. It's properties make it ideal for using in quiet moments of contemplation, as well as when wanting to create an air of purification.

Reviews - rated 4/5 based on customer reviews4 out of 5 By Brett AlmondIf you have ever burned a braid of sweetgrass you will know that it burns only very briefly, with only a small amount of smoke. And so it is with this incense stick. It burns with no problem, but the smoke it gives off is barely perceivable. This I think bears testament to the ingredients being very pure. This is the ultimate stick for perfuming a room, but without the smoke! Sometimes it is not until you return to where the stick is burning that you realise the aroma. Having said this, this stick is quite a powerful, and can leave you feeling a little light headed as it lifts you.
