Butterwort, A Charm of Protection

Butterwort, a Charm of Protection. This ancient charm is infused with the old Gaelic/Scots wisdom and magic that is drawn from everyday interactions with nature.

It's a prayer of great protection, as well as comfort, as it reminds us that nature provides everything we need. This prayer is also a celebration of the fairy women - the ancestors - who gathered this herb and is a reminder that such medicine belongs to the realm of the faeries, the realm of spirit. Butterwort is gathered in a specific way that emphasizes awareness, tradition and reverence.
