new favorite : sweet grass

SweetgrassBraids This was one of my favorite finds on our road trip out west a couple weeks ago. Sweet grass, dried and braided. Keep it in the car to give the car a sweet, natural scent or place somewhere in your home for a soothing, subtle aroma.

This image and resource comes from the Old West Gypsy Roadside Market, and is a nonprofit working to bring sweetgrass back to the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota -- you can order braids online here and support their effort at the same time!
