Hierochloe odorata - Sweetgrass

Native peoples of North America consider this plant sacred and Sweetgrass plays an important part in sacred ceremonies. The leaves are dried and made into braids and burned as a vanilla-scented incense. They are also used to make baskets which retain the vanilla-like scent for many years.
