Our wildcrafted and organically crafted Sweet Grass Hydrosol is steam distilled from the aromatic Hierochloe odorata plant, commonly known as Sweet Grass, growing wild in the Canadian countryside. This hydrosol has a fresh, sweet fragrance, and similar to the freshness of cut grass or hay.

Historically, Sweetgrass has played a large role in sacred ceremonies of the native culture in North America. The indigenous peoples of North America call Sweet Grass Sacred Hair of Mother Earth. People in Europe have also used sweet grass for similar purposes, where it reverently became known as Holy grass.


Unlike most herbs, the aroma of Sweetgrass strengthens when the plant is dried. The plant does not produce an essential oil that can capture its aroma and sweetgrass is distilled purely for the hydrosol. Sweetgrass Hydrosol is quite fragrant and is one of the most powerful hydrosols to clear energetic space. This lovely sweet grass hydrosol makes a great room freshener and deodorizing spray, as well. Its antimicrobial properties can even help clear the air of unwanted airborne germs.
