Spirituality, mysticism, medicinal uses and meanings
Names: Ilex aquifolium
Mystical Characteristics: Protection, Luck
Uses: Some say that if you throw holly at wild animals, they will leave you alone (we however, make no promises). Believed to be one of the best protective herbs. Plant around the house for protection against any negative influences, spells, hexes and curses. An infusion of holly can be used to protect young children, when sprinkled on them. Hang a sprig above the bed or place under the pillow to insure a pleasant sleep.
