This simple dream amulet is carved from hazel wood which was carefully and respectfully gathered from near to the ancient, sacred site of Stonehenge in southern Britain.
The piece is very tactile. It has not been crafted with the intention of being worn as jewellery and these amulets would most likely be too chunky for the purpose. Its primary purpose is for hanging near the bed for a dream charm or holding during sleep or meditation. It has a hole for hanging and can be supplied with cotton cord or leather thonging - if you have a preference please add a note in the message box during checkout.
The amulet is filled with hedge-gathered herbs which are traditionally considered to be sacred to the Druids: mugwort, vervain, enchanter's nightshade, bluebell, juniper, knapweed, heather flowers, lavender and mistletoe. The herbs are permanently sealed inside with a protective plug of ancient Celtic bog oak.
Lavender is a powerful herb which brings peace, harmony and encourages positive thought and restful sleep. Vervain is a sacred cleansing and purification herb. Juniper has strong associations with healing and mistletoe is added for its traditional connections with Druids. Mugwort has been used for millennia to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection. Our ancestors drank tea made from the leaves and it has also been used in incenses or smoked to induce visions.
This amulet is infused with the energies of this potent ancient herb blend from inside and will make an excellent piece to aid you on your dream journeys.
Please note: Group of amulets shown, listing is for one. Each amulet will vary slightly in shape, colour, texture and graining. The pictures shown are of the current group of amulets and although they are all crafted from the same materials and are very similar in overall style and size, there will be slight differences. That's part of the natural beauty of handcrafted items :-)
