Saxon Yew Hag Spirit (HGS11)
This natural and earthy Hag Spirit figure has been newly created from the root of a windfallen yew. The tree had been growing for over a thousand years, dating back to the Saxon Age.
The wood is a beautifully warm colour and feels full of positive energies, and 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 and herb bundle which can be best seen in the second-to-last photo. It includes the leaves of wormwood, and enchanter's nightshade. Enchanter's nightshade 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 Solomon's seal, 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. Mugwort brings its history of being used to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection. The bundle is finished with the dried flowers of yarrow.
The figure is 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.
A bindrune for ancestral connection has been added to the base of the figure, and this can be seen in the last photo.
