Other common names for Sweetgrass are: Holy Grass (or Mary's Grass), Vanilla Grass, Buffalo Grass, and Zebrovka.
Used in ceremonies to clean, purify and get rid of negative energy surrounding area. Typically burned after either Sage or Cedar to bring postive influences and energies.
Sweetgrass usually flowers in the months of June through August and therefore is picked at the end of June or beginning of July. After the grass is harvested it will then be braided into strands and become able to be used for Native ceremonies.
