The woody and fibrous stems of Honeysuckle or Woodbine (Lonicera periclymenum) - Gwyddfid in Welsh were at one time used for rope-making and for the lead reins of pack ponies. The plant is sacred to Venus and to the planet Mercury. It is a very Earthy plant and the heady scent has an earthy fragrance to it. Honeysuckle is said to attract money and growing it outside your home will attract good luck. Wearing Honeysuckle is said to increase psychic powers and held against the mind's eye (the spot slightly above and between eyebrows) is reputed to give clear sight. Young newly-weds often planted a pair of Honeysuckle plants together and encouraged them to wind around each other binding each other fast. This symbolised the marriage and showed their cleaving to each other.
