Herbs in an Advent Wreath

Herbs in an Advent Wreath

There are many legends about herbs and the roles they played in the Christmas story.

The wreath circle stands for eternity, the following is an explanation of herbs often found in an advent  wreath:

Juniper, cedar and pine protected the Holy Family on their flight from Egypt.

Ivy denotes the trinity.

Lavender represents purity and virtue, lavender is said to have received its lovely scent when it served as the drying rack for the Baby Jesus' swaddling clothes

Sage stands for immortality.

Horehound is a wish for good health.

Rue is a symbol or virtue and banishes evil.

Thyme another manger herb stands for bravery and strength of Christ.

Rosemary is for remembrance.

The story associated with rosemary is that its flowers changed from white to blue in Mary’s honor.

Bedstraw, is considered a manager herb.

Pennyroyal, is supposed to have bloomed at midnight on Christmas Eve in  Christ’s honor.

Costmary, also known as Bible leaf and used as a bookmark the fragrance chases insects, was used by Mary Magdalene to make an ointment for the baby Jesus.

Living Wreath Fun they will last for years with neglect.

 

I have been keeping myself busy with creating living wreaths from plants that tolerate neglect....  I am planning to try herbal plants - but I feel that they will need much more attention to keep alive...  I am hoping to have them ready for the holiday Season...  The wire frames are handmade and take very long to stuff with moss.....  Then there is the planting and there are lots and lots of plants.... this is why the cost is costly but they will last for years and besides you can steal cuttings which is simply easy to root.

I hope you will enjoy them as much as I enjoy making them.
