The smoke from this braid is used to facilitate prayers, encourage healing, and to bestow blessings and honor. Its pleasing aromas create a feeling of well-being, peace and comfort. Sage is burned beforehand traditionally to ward off any "negative energy".
Once the herb is lit and burning, gently blow out the flame and the herb will continue to smolder emitting the smudging smoke. When holding the lit Sweetgrass braid in the hand, put a NON-FLAMMABLE container (ceramic bowl, dish, etc.)* under the smoldering herb to catch ashes and any small glowing embers.
Each Braid is 18" Long
Each Stick is approximately 6" Long
