Sacred to Hecate this charm can be used to regain what was taken from you and grow stronger. Getting your own back can mean retrieving something lost or stolen or recovering something taken such as your confidence or self-esteem. It does not imply harm to anyone. However in earlier days this charm was often accompanied by a resounding curse!
This charm contains White Willow (Helygen Wen in Welsh) and Vervain (Briw'r March in Welsh) which help you to recover that which was lost and to grow from the experience.
I gather most herbs and flowers locally and dry them on the farm. Care is taken to ensure that the herbs and flowers are at their strongest and most powerful when they are gathered. None are collected from areas close to a road. They are placed in this lovely miniature glass flask and added to a real silver chain so that you can carry them at all times.
|Information||The willow is a tree of dreaming and enchantment, and in Celtic legend was associated with spells of fascination and binding. This helps us find that which is lost as our deep unconscious thoughts speak to us through our dreams. Willow is to be used by those who have suffered adversity or misfortune in life and remain embittered by it. Willow will help you out of this negative state to a greater interest and involvement in the present. If someone has taken or stolen something from you Vervain will help you confront the thief and help you regain what was lost.. A Charm of Vervain helps the Magician as protection while calling on spirits.|
