First Nations Sweetgrass Soap

SKU: 17189

  Made in British Columbia

This First Nations all natural sweetgrass soap was created by Canadian Cree Medicine Woman Carrie Armstrong, based on teachings rooted in the sacred plants of the Medicine Wheel. This handmade soap is made from natural, sustainable oils and botanicals. The base of the soap consists of coconut, olive and sustainable palm oil with the addition of botanicals and essential oils to nourish the body, mind and soul.


Sweetgrass is sometimes called the hair of Mother Earth and is considered a sacred gift. After the grass is harvested, it is carefully braided; the three sections representing mind, body, and spirit. By braiding it, we bring those aspects of our being together, care for and strengthen them. When we smudge with sweetgrass, we are taught that the smoke from that burning sweetgrass prepares us for prayer because the scent is pleasing to the Creator. It is the northern direction of the medicine wheel.
