It is said that Hawthorn Berries uplift and strengthen both the physical and emotional heart. Considered to be a particularly symbolic tree with many folktales and magical myths surrounding it, the hawthorn was "sacred tree medicine" to the ancient Druids. Hawthorn is a tree of the Fae forming the faery triad with oak and ash, and offers a gateway to the world of Faerie.
Placed around doors and windows, hawthorn will prevent people from entering your home in an astral state. It will also prevent spirits from entering a place. Add hawthorn berries to your floor wash to purify your house. Add to magickal workings where you require forgiveness.
