Yew is one of the longest living trees on earth and one of the oldest trees with fossils dating back 200 million years. It has been held as sacred and important by most cultures due to its longevity and deadly poisonous nature. This tree has been used in history to protect sacred burial grounds, sacred places, and as a witness for oath making. Do to its long life, the yew tree can be worked with in flower essence therapy to help with memory, processing memories, and emotional healing from family trauma or traumatic events spanning multiple generations. It is an ally to those investigating their genealogy or seeking to connect spiritually with their ancestors.

In folk magic the yew tree is associated with the planet Saturn, the water element, the underworld, death, and the ancestors. It can be used in magic and rituals to aid in communication with the ancestors, especially during fall, winter, and new moons.

Flower Essence Info:

Flower essences embody a living tradition of magical herbalism. In use since the early 1900s, flower essences are not tinctures but diluted cold water infusions of the fresh flowers or other botanicals which are harvested in a mindful ceremony and prayed over. Developed by Doctor Edward Bach in the1930s, they are meant to be ingested in homeopathic amounts to help with emotional pain such as fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, burnout, sadness, and trauma. Flower essences made from poisonous plants are safe to ingest and can be used for spiritual cleansing, magical rituals, anointing, and plant spirit communion.

We sell flower essences as 30 ml stock bottles. A stock bottle is simply 50% best brandy and 50% water. Three drops of a flower’s mother essence are put into this stock bottle and we ship it to you ready for use. The mother essence is the pure cold water infusion of the fresh flowers which are harvested ritually, prayed over, and infused in the morning sun for a couple hours before straining and using to make stock bottles. The finished flower essence you receive is a diluted version of this mother essence preserved with the alcohol. There are only three drops of a mother essence in each bottle of our flower essences.


To work with yew tree essence, take three drops under your tongue 1-3 times a day for a period of 3, 6, or 9 days, weeks, or months depending on your situation.

To use this essence for magic and ritual, take three drops beforehand. Add the flower essence to ritual baths or holy water. Use it anoint candles, talismans, herbal sachets, etc. Ask the tree spirit for aid and guidance through rough times. Don’t forget to leave an offering to the tree after it has helped you and the circle of giving is complete. Fitting offerings include incense, wine, honey, flowers, or tobacco leaf.
