Wiingashk (Sweetgrass) ⚪️
*CALMING * PURIFIES*
Wiingashk is known for its beautifully sweet aromatic scent, a reminder of the gentleness, love, and kindness mother earth has for the people. It is often braided and thus signifies the hair of Mother Earth. Each of the three sections that go into the braid has a specific meaning, being: the past, future and present generation, and the 7 grandfather teachings are represented in the 7 strands of each section. Sweetgrass in a healing circle has a calming effect. One of the 4 sacred medicines, Wiingashk sits at the northern door.
Mashkiki means medicine in anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe). The plants around us are living beings, with gifts and purpose. Like us. We can learn a lot from them, and also welcome them in helping us.
The 4 Sacred Medicines to the Anishinaabe are tobacco, cedar, sage & sweetgrass. These plants were specifically given to us by creator, to assist us in our journey.
At Indigenously Infused, we grow the traditional medicines and teach their significance. We then harvest and infuse the plants into our products.
