Sweet Grass sod for sale. $10/sq foot. Hierochloe odorata (sweet grass or holy grass)Sweet grass was, and is, very widely used by north American indigenous peoples. It is one of the "four sacred medicines", the other three being cedar, sage, and tobacco. In Native American spirituality sweet grass is the sacred hair of Mother Earth; its sweet aroma reminding native people of the gentleness, love and kindness she has for them. Sweetgrass is traditionally braided in 3 strands representing love, kindness and honesty. As a sacred plant, it is used in peace and healing rituals. Leaves are dried and made into braids and burned as vanilla-scented incense; long leaves of sterile shoots are used by Native Americans in making baskets.
