- Sweetgrass has a long history of traditional use with sacred significance by North American First Nations. Used in ceremony & ritual, Sweetgrass is one of the 4 sacred medicines of the Medicine Wheel (as is cedar, sage, & tobacco). Respect & intention are important when working with this plant. Sweetgrass can be used to clear or "cleanse" a space or person. The hydrosol can be used as an alternative in spaces where burning botanicals & smoke may be prohibited.
Hydrosols, also known as hydrolats, are aqueous solutions created when distilling essential oils. They are most often used as refreshing skin toners, or as the water component in skincare.
