Hawthorn


This species of Hawthorn is found in Central and Western Europe.
In is known for strengthening the Heart and all Heart or Blood related ailments.
 In some countries the berries are known as Pixie Pears and Cuckoo's Beads, whilst the Hawthorn itself has been known as the May, Mayblossom, Hagthorn, Mayflower, Ladies Meat, Bread and Cheese and Quickthorn.

The berries can be picked  for wine, jams, jellies, tinctures and teas.

Hawthorn can be woven in to a growing fence called a Hedgerow. These thorny barriers are very effective and have saved many villages from thieves and highwaymen.

First mentioned medicinally in the 'Tang Ben Cao', a herbalist  back in 659 A.D. where it was used to cure digestive and circulatory disorders.  The Greeks and the Romans have been using it to treat Heart problems since the first century A.D.  It has been a symbol of fertility.

Rumor: Said to offer protection from lightning for centuries.

Legend :The Hawthorn was considered sacred in early times and legend has it that Joseph of Aramathea came to England and planted his Hawthorn staff in the soil at Glastonbury, creating what later became known as the Glastonbury Thorn.

The maypole was originally constructed from Hawthorn.

In a clinical trial, 78 people who were given 600mg a day for 8 weeks of Hawthorn extract, found there was a significant improvement in exercise tolerance and lower blood pressure and heart rate during exercise.

When modern doctors are looking for a remedy for hypertension, high blood pressure herbs usually are the second alternative, yet, ancient civilizations were using herbs long before Western medicine created chemical drugs.

 Myth: In the middle ages, Hawthorn was hung over the doorway and it was said to prevent evil spirits entering the home.  It has connections with faeries and the underworld in Celtic folklore.  Hawthorn was often referred to as the faerie bush and it was considered bad luck to cut it for fear of offending the faeries that inhabited it.
 
Hawthorn (Huathe)

Uses:
Cleansing - Protection - Preparation - Love



Hawthorn (Huathe) is known throughout the Celtic realms as a tree belonging to the Faery and as a tree who will assist in releasing negative and/or blocked energy held within us. Perhaps the most widely known Thorn tree is at Glastonbury, which is said to have sprouted from the staff of Joseph of Arimathea.

Huathe is also recognised as a tree of the Goddess Brighid and is connected with the festival of Beltane. During this time branches of the Hawthorn are pruned or blossoms removed to symbolise the beauty of the journey and to make way for new growth... a shedding in many ways of the old, who in turn gives ground for the new.

As the Hawthorn holds the enchantment of the Faery realms, they belong with nature. Both Druids and Witches consider it unlucky to take the tree, branches or blossoms into the home. You never know one of the Fae may have been resting within and the Faery will work magic to return their own towards the inner realms.

Respecting this will pay dividends when working with Huathe as this is also a tree of Love and when greeted correctly the Hawthorn may help guide the seeker towards their true heart's desire and offer protection of a magical variety during this transformation.

The Hawthorn is also one tree who has crossed the divide between Paganism and Christianity; the staff of Joseph and the thorns worn by Christ are two prime examples. With this in mind Huathe assists in spiritual growth and releases those fears which were previously bound and tied within the psyche, preparing the traveller for their journey.

Huathe is represented by the element Earth and considered to be a favourite meeting place for those of the inner worlds to gather, particularly during the fire festivals. Carrying a piece of Hawthorn (always ask first) can help to aid in psychic protection and ease depression through it's association with these realms and Mother Earth.
 
Himalayan Cedarwood (Cedrus deodora)


Cedarwood has been associated with strength and nobility from time immemorial.  The Latin name for Cedarwood ‘cedrus’ is derived from the Arabic ‘kedron’ which means ‘power.’  In the ancient Middle East, the Cedars of Lebanon were greatly prized for their strength and ability to repel insects.  The Temple of Solomon was said to be built of Cedarwood.  The ancient Egyptians used the wood for their furniture, boats, and coffins.  Cedar oil was one of the elements used in mummification as well.  The ancient Teutonic tribes associated Cedar with the powerful Odin, god of storms, magic, and the harvest.

Although the biblical Cedars of Lebanon do not exist anymore, a
similar species is Himalayan Cedarwood.  This essential oil contains the chemicals caryophyllene, cedrol, a-cedrene, b-cedrene, and widdrol among others.

Cedarwood essential oil is often used for its warming, drying properties.  It is helpful for respiratory ailments including bronchitis.  Like many essential oils, it is antiseptic and antispasmodic, easing coughing and drying out mucous for congested lungs.

This familiar-smelling essential oil (pencils are made from Cedarwood) has a strong effect on the urinary tract.  It is a diuretic and an anti-fungal.  It tones the kidneys and bladder, and can be used for urinary tract infections.  The best way to do this is to take a sitz bath.  A sitz bath is a shallow bath intended to heal the urinary and/or reproductive organs.  Preparing a sitz bath is very easy.  Simply run a shallow (hip level),warm (not hot) bath, add about 5 drops of essential oil, and swirl the water with your hand to distribute the oil evenly.  Then sit in the oil-infused water for 10-15 minutes.  A sitz bath with Cedarwood oil can be effective for urinary tract infections, as well as Candida, especially when a drop or two of Lavender and/or Tea Tree is added.  Baths with Cedar and Lemon are helpful for reducing cellulite and toning lymph as well.

Essential oil of Cedarwood can be used in preparations for oily skin, dandruff, and hair loss.  It tones the scalp and cleans the hair follicles.

Emotionally and spiritually, Cedarwood is an extremely fortifying oil.  It can ground the spirit and open the mind, allowing us to feel balance, strength, and certainty.  Cedarwood seems to bolster the ego; banishing fear, anger, and anxiety.  It reinforces the will and raises confidence levels, giving us the energy we need to weather a crisis.

Use Himalayan Cedarwood essential oil as an ingredient in Grounding, Courage, and blends focusing on the major pantheon gods such as Odin, among others.
Warnings:
 Cedarwood essential oil should not be used by pregnant women, as it is known to bring on menstruation.  Some people develop skin irritation from this oil.  It should always be used diluted with a high quality carrier oil such as Sesame, Grapeseed, or Jojoba.
