The Latin name for Heather, Calluna, is derived from the Greek Kallyno meaning “to beautify or sweep clean”, referring to its traditional use in besoms and brooms. It is believed Heather is the source of the word heathen, originally used to refer to people who lived on the heath and followed the old ways, to this day it is used to make honey, ale and mead. Scottish farmers carried flaming torches of heather around their fields before midsummer to ensure a good harvest. Heather is said to grow over a fairy’s final resting place and it ignites the flames of fairy passions, opening the door between the otherworld and this. Carrying heather will attract positive energies, good luck and protection from danger. It is often a part of the bridal bouquet to ensure luck, peace and cooperation in the couple’s household.
