Sweet Grass Braid

SKU: 16993

Sweetgrass grows in high elevation alpine meadows throughout the West. Its unique vanilla-like scent and centering, relaxing energy makes it one of the most beloved of all Western plants for smudging and incense.
Juniper Ridge was founded in 1998 by hiker, mushroom-forager, and all-around nature freak Hall Newbegin.

Back then, Hall would spend the week harvesting plants up in the mountains, make natural fragrance, soaps, and wild herb teas in his kitchen, and then sell his latest creations at the Berkeley Farmers' Market.

People who normally steered clear of fragrances fell in love with the stuff Hall was making. "It smells like my favorite hike!" they’d say. "It smells…real!"
100% pure plant material. Great for fireplace!

All Juniper Ridge products are 100% Wild and produced using old perfume-making techniques including distillation, tincturing, infusion and enfleurage. A hundred years ago, all fragrances were made this way. They handle every step of the process themselves, from beginning to end. These formulas vary from year to year and harvest to harvest, based on rainfall, temperature, exact harvesting location, and season. The exact formula depends on what we find in the wind, a conversation with the living, wild ecology.

All of the plants are wildharvested with the utmost sensitivity and respect for the existing wildscape. They return to the same stands year after year to carefully monitor regrowth. 10% of their profits are annually donated to a portfolio of Western Wilderness Defense organizations. They revel in the intact forest habitats of the West, and tirelessly work to promote education as to how best to protect them.
