Holloway Hag Spirit (HGS03)
This natural and earthy Hag Spirit figure has been newly created from windfallen yew from a still-living tree. The tree has been growing for over a thousand years, dating back to the Saxon Age.
The wood was carefully gathered from a beautiful holloway, a lane walked by people dating back into the mists of time (read more here). The wood is a beautifully warm colour and feels full of positive energies. The piece contains a hole within it, reminiscent of a hagstone. Within mythology, hags are powerful and complex female figures.
The figure is incredibly tactile, so feels good to hold during meditation or for ritual use, but is not free-standing.
It carries a protective root bundle which includes the leaves of enchanter's nightshade, which has long associations with witchcraft and sorcery. It's considered to aid inner conflict and has been traditionally used to find balance by bringing opposites together. Binding, hexing and enchantment is also associated with this beautiful herb. The roots of yarrow and St. John's Wort are added to the bundle. Yarrow brings its strong associations with clairvoyance and powers to promote divination, and St. John's Wort is traditionally used to repel negative energies. The bundle is finished with mugwort, which has a history of being used to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection.
A medicine bag completes the figure. The bag, and the figure itself, are both filled with our protective herb blend, created from herbs which are traditionally considered to aid protection and bring energies of peace. The herbs are sealed inside the Hag Spirit with a plug of blackthorn which was carefully gathered at the time of the first harvest, known in the Pagan calendar as Lammas.
The base of the figure is finished with a bindrune for ancestral connection, and this can be seen in the last photo.
Crafted with real Celtic soul.
