The Orris Root has long been used to find and hold love. Carry it with you, sprinkle it around your home or put some on your altar to promote love and protection in your space. It enhances communication with the spirit world in regards to love – connecting the user to the spirit guides that support relationships. In Japan, Orris was used as a protectant against evil spirits, and the roots were hung from the eaves of the house and added to bathwater for personal protection.
It is associated with the deities Aphrodite, Isis, Osiris, Hera and Iris.
