This dream amulet is carved into a petite owl, traditionally associated with dreams and night journeys. The wood is locally gathered mistletoe. It was considered to be sacred to the Druids - mistletoe was once known as "Druad-las" meaning "the Druid's plant" and traditionally was cut from the sacred oak at midwinter. The ogham name for oak is "Duir" which is the root of the words "Druid" and "door" as the the tree is the doorway to the Otherworld.
The owl is free-standing on a flat surface and is very tactile - perfect for holding during sleep or meditation. The amulet is filled with yarrow, grasses and white clover, all respectfully and 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 ancient English bog oak.
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 and restful sleep. 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.
This wonderful little owl is full of character and will make an excellent guide to aid you on your dream journeys.
