For centuries, our ancestors used herbs for healing and magick. They used herbs in elixirs, incense and charms to ward off evil, bring in fortune, protect children, help pregnant women and to heal illnesses.

Herbs used for seasoning in foods were included for their magical and/or medicinal properties rather than for their flavour. The lore of herbs has not been forgotten and has been passed down to our generation, much information can be found in libraries, experimentations and ancient books. Because of today’s awareness of Earth’s vulnerability, modern Witches, Pagans and Wise Ones are once again focusing on the gifts that Mother Nature has given them.

For centuries, our ancestors used stones for more than just decoration. As a matter of fact, crystals and gemstones were used for their healing properties. They used stones in elixirs and formed them into amulets to ward off evil, attract opulence, love, protection and to use in conjunction with the Chakras to heal illnesses.

When stones were created into jewellery, they were primarily included for their Magickal or medicinal properties, rather than for their appearance. Much of their lore was forgotten, but fortunately for our generation, not all of it has been lost, and much that had been lost has now been either relearned through experimentation or relived through research of ancient books.
