YEW - Idho
21st December - Winter Solstice
Yews are very magical trees, they are among the most ancient living things in northern Europe and may live up to 2000 years, or more. Which, from our human perspective seems almost eternal. As evergreen trees they symbolize the eternal cycle of life, death, transformation, regeneration and rebirth. Yews are said to nurture the souls once they have passed to the Otherworld, fostering them through the period of rest until they are ready to join the dance of life once more. This is the reason why Yews are frequently found in churchyards or growing near sacred springs and wells. In time the waters of life will carry the souls to be reborn in their new incarnations. Thus Yews, which are sometimes called 'Trees of Death', actually signify a peaceful rest in the land of the Blessed, regeneration, rebirth and eternal life. Their serene and timeless energy calms and soothes the troubles and turmoil of life and allows transcendental wisdom to surface.
Wear Yew Tree Wisdom Perfume to attune to the Otherworld as a place of peace and transformation. The completion of a journey heralds a new beginning.
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. Tree Wisdom Perfumes are inspired by the ancient Celtic tree lore and the Devic beings, who whisper their secrets in the rustling leaves. They contain a blend of pure essential oils and absolutes, as well as a magical infusion made from the leaves, buds, barks and flowers of their associated tree. May every one of them provide a key to the doors of perception and offer a unique glimpse into the Devic realms.
