Smudging

Sweetgrass and sage are used for smudging. This is how you use sweetgrass and sage. You light the sage or sweetgrass and smudge your face, hands, and around your body. A lot of Mi'kmaw people use sweetgrass or sage. You mostly find sweetgrass and sage in swampy areas. It smells very nice. Then when you pick it, you let it dry overnite. Once it's dried, girls or women may braid it, not men.
