Sweetgrass is a fragrant grass with long, satiny leaves. Also known as vanillagrass, mannagrass and holy grass, it is well known to many Indigenous people in Canada and the United States as a material for baskets, as well as a scent, medicine and smudge. It was burned and used ceremonially in North American indigenous cultures to attract good spirits, to purify thoughts, the environment and to eliminate bad or negative thoughts.
