Sweet Grass is also known as Mother Earth's hair and is often braided before being dried. The 3 parts of the braid represent different things to different cultures. It has been known to mean "body, mind, & soul," or "peace, love, & harmony," depending on where you live.
Burning Sweet Grass, or "smudging" can be beneficial in many ways:
