The Magick of Evergreen

Happy Winter Solstice!

This time of year, people all over the world decorate their homes with synthetic evergreen trees, wreaths, and garlands, but how many of us actually stop to connect with the natural essence of real live evergreen?

Evergreen plants such as Pine, cedar, and juniper grow all year even in the coldest of climates. For this reason, they are one of our oldest and best loved Winter Holiday staples. They remind us that although most of the greenery has disappeared, their life force is still strong beneath the ground, and the Earth is still alive and strong. While times may be harder during the winter months, the evergreen is here as a symbol of our inner light, which will outlast the season.

Believe it or not, pine is an excellent source of vitamin C when drank as a tea. In the Native American culture, pine incense was burned for spiritual home cleansing. Bringing sprigs of any evergreen indoors is said to promote feelings of strength, and to cleanse out negative energy and thought patterns. What a perfect way to beat the winter blues!

In this tutorial, I’ll show you how I used fallen evergreen branches to create a simple natural wreath for the Winter Solstice!
