Rowan Tree - a Halloween worthy tree of lore

Listen closely to the whispers of the Rowan Tree, for within its branches lie echoes of eerie lore.

For ages untold, wise folk have planted these trees near their homes and churches to ward off witches. Hence, the Rowan Tree is known by many names, including "witch wiggin” and mountain ash. The Rowan Tree is said to be most potent when its berries are at their reddest, wielding a protective shield against sorcery. Throughout the British Isles, this enchanted tree is renowned for its power to protect against enchantments.

In addition to its protective properties, the Rowan Tree also has a rich cultural significance. It has been used in traditional medicine to treat ailments such as fever and colds, and its wood has been used for carving and making musical instruments. The tree has also been the subject of many legends and myths, with some believing that it was the tree from which the Norse god Thor made his famous hammer.

Despite its many uses and cultural significance, the Rowan Tree is unfortunately becoming

increasingly rare in some areas. Conservation efforts are underway to protect this enchanted tree and ensure that future generations can benefit from its magical properties and cultural importance.

So next time you come across a Rowan Tree, take a moment to appreciate its beauty and magical properties
