DESCRIPTION

Brigid seems to be one of those deities that care very little about how a she is worshiped only that she is called upon to aid those who call for her. She is a Goddess of all crafts including the healing arts. She is found throughout European practices under a variety of names, though almost always keeping her identity as a mistress of crafts.

The Mountain Spirit is one of the most enduring and venerated deities of traditional Korean spiritual practices. The mountains in Korean culture are not seen as blocks or obstacles, but a sacred place where the wisdom of the heavens meets the spirit of the earthly world. The Mountain Spirit is frequently asked to aid in the curing of illnesses, and mountains are regularly visited recreationally to enliven the spirit.

Throughout the world honey has been used as an offering to deities, a symbol of life, prosperity, fertility and immortality, and many medicinal applications. Honey does not go bad, and it has indeed been used throughout the world as a preservative both for culinary and embalming purposes. It's antibacterial properties have also been used to dress wounds and treat internal illnesses, and of course it has had cosmetic applications. To this day honey is the only sweetener that does not require a huge amount of factory processing and high carbon footprint.

Ginseng is a highly medicinal plant and kept in high regard in Korean and Chinese tradition. A "man shaped" root, it is the polar opposite in application to another such plant the Mandrake. The shape is said to represent its positive application to the whole body. Modern medicine supports this as it works by assisting the adrenal gland, circulatory system and the heart. As the adrenal gland is responsible for releasing stress hormones it assists the body to replenish energy uplift the immune system that has become compromised from prolonged stress responses. It has long been prized spiritually has a plant of good fortune, longevity, and good health. It is scared to the beloved Mountain Spirit of Korean tradition.

ECOLOGICAL NOTE AND CONCERN

Please be careful when purchasing ginseng. Panax ginseng only comes from Southern Russia, Northeastern China, and most widely Korea. Due to its popularity as a health item these nations have put out protection and / or conservation efforts and much ginseng is now farmed, though as its 5 - 6 year maturity rate and growth conditions make illegal poaching still very common. American ginseng does not have the same properties.

Essential oils always require a considerable amount of a plant to produce, therefore Solis Illuminatum only uses synthetic ginseng fragrance oils and ginseng products from ethical sources. Though certainly, nothing compares to truly natural ingredients Solis Illuminatum also believes Pagan practice should be mindful of ones' ecological impact.
