Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Folk Names: Compess Weed, Dew of the Sea, Elf Leaf, Guardrobe, Incensier, Polar Plant, Sea Dew. * Gender: Masculine * Planet: Sun * Element: Fire * Powers: Protection, Love, Lust, Mental Powers, Exorcism, Purification, Healing, Sleep, Youth *
Folk Uses: Rosemary, when burned, emits powerful cleansing and purifying vibrations, and so is smouldered to rid a place of negativity, especially prior to prayer and meditation. It is one of the oldest incenses. A chaplet of rosemary, worn, aids the memory, while the wood, smelled often, preserves youthfullness. Rosemary infusion is used to wash the hands before healing work, and the leaves mixed with juniper berries are burned in sickrooms to promote healing. Rosemary is grown to attract elves, according to legend, and the powered leaves wrapped in linen cloth and bound to the right arm dispel depression and make the emotions light and merry.
