Sweetgrass, botanically known known as Hierochloe odorata or Anthoxanthum, is a tall, flowering grass that grows near wetlands and rivers across the United States and Canada. This plant has played a significant role in Native history, and is sometimes used in basket making and other craft projects. It is considered the “hair” of the mother Earth. Burn for positivity. Our fragrant sweetgrass braids are approximately 26 inches long.
