This smooth, tactile pendant is carved into a dark moon, a time associated with looking inward, hidden depths, divination and scrying. The wood is bog yew from Ireland which is around 5,000 years old. It is a wonderfully warm, rich colour and this particular piece has some beautifully subtle colour variations within the wood. The third photo shows the back of the pendant.
The Dark Moon pendant is filled with our Druid's herb blend: yarrow, grasses and white clover, all carefully gathered from the ancient, sacred prehistoric mound of Silbury Hill in southern England. Hedge-gathered herbs considered sacred to the Druids are also added to the mix - mugwort, vervain, enchanter's nightshade, bluebell, juniper, knapweed, heather flowers, lavender and mistletoe. The herbs are permanently sealed inside with a protective plug of mistletoe.
Yarrow brings its strong associations with clairvoyance and powers to promote divination. Lavender is a powerful herb which brings peace, harmony and encourages positive thought. Vervain is a sacred cleansing and purification herb. Juniper has strong associations with healing and mistletoe is added for its traditional connections with Druids. Mugwort has been used for millennia to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection. Our ancestors drank tea made from the leaves and it has also been used in incenses or smoked to induce visions.
The pendant is supplied with leather or cotton cord thong. If you have a preference about the thonging type please add a note in the message box during checkout.
