The name basil comes from the Greek word for king 'basiliusand is commonly referred to as the ‘king of herbs’ by chefs around the world. Basil is deeply significant to various religions, used to prepare and sprinkle holy water and in many funeral rituals to ensure safe passage to the afterlife. Despite this basil has a conflicted history in terms of its associations and meanings. In ancient Greek and Roman writings, it was associated with hatred and insanity. In European folklore, throughout the middle ages, it was traditional to gift your sweetheart with a pot of basil to signify your love, and presented to guests as a parting gift with best wishes. It is said witches would drink basil juice before flying on their brooms and that carrying a sprig of basil in your pocket will bring wealth and success. 

Our petite sentiment charms are made with real flowers in sterling silver, using the traditional technique of lost wax casting. They are beautifully packaged with our signature box posy which changes with the seasons, a postcard detailing the botanical folklore and floriography of each piece, and a gift card for a personal message.

If you find that not all the sentiments are appropriate, you can personalise your presentation by choosing from the drop down menu. If you select 'other combination' please add a note in 'Special Instructions' in the cart.
