He who finds holy grass growing (often in big clusters) can be considered lucky. In spite of its name sweet grass is not as fragrant as holy grass. Once you have found it mark the spot and either take pictures or draw it in your notebook. After that you can visit there year after year, gather it into a bundle, dry it and place it in your favorite drawer. Thus, by doing just as your foremothers did, your clothes will be fragrant and fine smelling throughout the winter.
