Native American traditions

Sweet grass is widely used by North American indigenous peoples from many different Nations. Among many of the Plains Indians is considered one of the “four sacred medicines”.

European traditions

Holy grass was strewn before church doors on saints’ days in northern Europe, presumably because of the sweet smell that arose when it was trodden on. It was used in France to flavor candy, tobacco, soft drinks, and perfumes. In Europe, the species Hierochloe alpina is frequently substituted or used interchangeably. In Russia, it was used to flavor tea. It is still used in flavored vodka, the most notable example being Polish Żubrówka.
