Eir


Eir is the Norse Goddess of Healing.  She is a master physician who wields power in the healing of the mind, body, and spirit.  Eir knows the secret powers of the herbs and has even been known to resurrect the dead.  She bestows healing and wisdom only to women for in Scandinavia women dominated this honorable field.   She is depicted as a beautiful, slender young woman with reddish blond hair, blue eyes, and fair skin. 

It is said that She resides on Mount Lyfia (to heal through magic) where She utilizes Her many magical and natural techniques to provide help to those in need.  She uses  herbs that She has gathered from all over the world and had prepared magically to bind wounds and cure illnesses.  As patroness of health care workers and healers, she prefers, in addiction to herbs,  gentle, holistic methods of natural healing such as flower essences, folk medicine, massage, nutrition, and shamanic soul retrieval.
