Hawthorn Medicinal Uses and Benefits

Hawthorn trees are said to provide a safe haven during thunderstorms. The hawthorn berries are a great sedative, antispasmodic and diuretic – can regulate blood pressure.  Also helpful for angina and palpitations. Gather the leaves in summer and the berries in autumn.  They relieve stress, kidney disorders and diarrhoea.

Hawthorn Magical Properties

Hawthorn bushes are symbolic of all aspects of the triple goddess, traditionally marking entrances to the magical other world.  In Ireland Hawthorn are found growing around and over wells and it was considered a serious crime to cut one down, (except in May). The Hawthorn wood can be used for handles and the bark to dye wool black. The flowers can be used in syrups to make wine or jams and jellies.  It provides good hedging for farmers, making dense thorny thickets which are an excellent defence. Protection.

Herbs And Their Uses

Look after your health and improve habits.  As with all magic, it asks you to find the balance required by uniting apparent opposites. Open your mind away from the thickets of ignorance and lies and find that middle line. Ultimately the Hawthorn, with its prickly branches and its bright pink berries scream out a warning to those who have swung too far off centre. © Jyoti Eagles Druid Priestess
