The Rowan nestled in a small clearing on the way down to the Oak and Holly. She is a small tree, but the energy is magical. Rowan was revered by the ancients as a female version of the Ash and thereby a “Tree of Life”. This is supported as her branches rarely die away leaving the shape and beauty of rowan, perfect and untouched by time. Rowan is a species of the Rose family and the berries that are the strong characteristic give full colour and magic to Rowan in the autumn months. Rowan is also connected to Brigid of Ireland and Brigantia of England who both herald the honouring of our watercourses and feminine principles of gentleness, creativity and prose. Rowan is under the planetary influence of the sun, and the making of this solar essence, at such a high summer time was clearly very powerful.
It is an astringent and has antibiotic qualities.
