Hawthorn Tree Wisdom Oil
Inspired by the Celtic Tree Calendar, 'Tree Wisdom Perfumes' are a unique range of magical perfumes. According to ancient lore, trees are inhabited by angelic beings known as Dryads, who embody their souls. They are the keepers of nature's wisdom. Each type of tree speaks through its own particular Dryad and each holds the key to its own special aspect of this arcane Earth wisdom.
13th May ~ 9th June
Hawthorn is associated with the Crone aspect of the Goddess, the hag, who with her forbidding thorns marks the boundary between cultivated land and the wilderness beyond. The white blossom exudes a distinct and almost narcotic scent that penetrates the spring air (some have even described it as erotic!).
Hawthorn is another tree marked by the sacred colours of the Goddess, as the white blossom turns into bright red fruit in autumn. Not surprisingly, it is associated with the fairy realm. Hapless travellers, who fall asleep under its branches, find themselves lured into their enchanting world - only to realise upon their return that years instead of hours passed while they were dreaming. Humans have an ambivalent relationship with the fairy folk and thus, trees that provide access to their realm are often thought 'unlucky' - at least if brought into the house. On the other hand, Hawthorn branches hung above the door protect home, hearth and animals against witchcraft and evil spirits.
In the Celtic Tree Calendar, the Hawthorn month is a time of purification and abstinence, a time to cleanse the temples, as well as the temple of the body, in preparation of the Summer Solstice.
Wear Hawthorn Tree Wisdom Perfume to get in touch with your true sense of self and to mark your personal boundary. It may be worn during times of spiritual cleansing and abstinence.
