Traditional Native American style is to dry and braid these beautiful long grasses. To burn them as incense, light one end and gently blow out the flame. Allow it to smolder and release its fragrance.

Traditionally, Native Americans would first use sage to cleanse a space of evil spirits that caused illnesses, then they'd burn sweet grass to create a positive atmosphere and to attract helpful spirits.
