Sweetgrass Braid : Large Smudge Sticks

$42.50 $32.50

A hardy perennial herb with a sweet vanilla-like fragrance, sweetgrass is native to Europe and North America. 

The plant can grow to a height of about 24 inches, with long leaves that have shiny undersides. Its name, Hierochloe odorata, literally means “fragrant holy grass,” and the plant has been regarded as sacred everywhere it has been grown and harvested. In Northern Europe, sweetgrass was scattered on the ground in front of churches on saints’ days so that the pleasing fragrance would be released when people walked inside. It is most often braided and then moistened to release its sweet fragrance, or burned as incense. When burned, the plant smoulders, producing clouds of fragrant smoke.

Sweetgrass is also one of the four sacred plants of the indigenous American Medicine Wheel and represents the Northern direction. The other plants contained in the Medicine Wheel are: White Sage representing the West, Cedar representing the South, and Tobacco representing the East.

To use, light the end of the bundle then blow out the flame so that the leaves begins to smoke. Lightly fanning the bundle will encourage an even burn and release of the fragrant scent. To extinguish, simply snuff out the smoking end in sand or a fireproof dish.

Never leave unattended.

More about Smudging from Wāginä…

There are many different beliefs why we smudge. Cultures all around the world carry many of the same understandings of what the smoke actually does. Depending on what intentions and ceremonies are administered along with what herb or combination of herbs that are burnt, can have a variety of energetic effects with the physical self as well as the spiritual self. 

Not only can these herbs have a cleansing effect, they also can, paired along with the correct intentions; have the ability to assist with connection and manifestation. 

This is the part of the ceremony that most people have troubles with. It takes many years of practice to be able to learn to: 

‘Ask with your heart and not with your head’. 

This is where ‘Shaman Sage‘ can assist. I have made a commitment to perform ceremony and place intentions on all of my ceremonial products. These ceremonies have been administered to assist YOU with your connection, cleansing and manifestations. 

I have been working very closely with my guides over the past few years to develop this range of shamanic products and we have both made commitments to;

‘Continue to work in the light and assist others with their spiritual awakening’. 

We feel that the time has come to share these products with you now and I hope that you can continue to walk, work, live and love Spirit. 

Please note that Shaman Sage cannot vouch for the medicinal effects of these various products. As for their spiritual properties, we believe that “energy flows where attention goes” and if you place the right intention, then anything is possible. “Smudging” is the practice of burning leaves of plants during prayers and ceremonies, the smoke of which becomes incense.
