Roots

pendant
£65.00

This 4cm amulet is capped in sterling silver and would look great on a sterling chain. It has been rubbed with coconut oil and beeswax to nurture its powers.  You will feel the heathen spirit of wild nature!

The bore has been reveried by so many cultures - One Norse tradition connected with the Goddess Freyja was the Yule Oath Boar. Freyja's sacred animal was a Golden Boar called Gullinbursti (Golden Bristles), which glowed with a golden light strong enough to drive away shadows and turn night into day.

The people of Khmer (Khmer hill tribes living along the gateway at the Khmer-Lao border) still believe the boar tusk to be a powerful talisman; warding off evil and enhancing strength and protection the wearer.

NOTE: This tusk was ethical sourced from foraging, wild boar often chip their tusks from; digging things up or fighting - But they do grow back!

 

From the AW20 collection Astral Ancestors:

The inspiration for the Astral Ancestors collection is a scent -  A perfumed oil that captures the spirit of an imagined journey - From the Earth's Core to Outer Space. 

"There was something undefined and complete, existing before Heaven and Earth. How still it was, how formless, standing alone and undergoing no change, reaching everywhere with no danger of being exhausted. It may be regarded as the mother of all things. Truthfully it has no name, but I call it Tao." (Tsu, 1972)

Black pepper and patchouli - The core, snaking up towards the crust and beyond.

Vetiver and frankincense  -  The earth, caves and fields.

Lavender and neroli  - Flora and fauna.

Cedarwood, sandalwood and fir   - The trees reaching up.

Geranium  - Stratosphere

Birch tar  - Moon

Almond - Saturn's moon

Raspberry - Outer space.
