Sweet Vernal (Adonis)

Name: Adonis annua

Toxicity: potentially deadly 

Common Names: Sweet Vernal, Pheasant’s Eye

Continent: Eurasia

Habitat: VI

Applicable Plant Components: herb





Anecdotal: Adonis is a species that supports and empowers inner strength and intervenes in matters related to broken hearts. Adonis is an exceedingly deadly poison, many more times toxic than Digitalis and virtually always fatal when mishandled. Remarkably, however, it is quite common as a garden specimen. Provided those gardens aren’t worked by children or explored by pets Adonis will bring its fine qualities to lives energetically by its presence and beauty.

    Thanks for taking the time to talk about this, I really feel strongly about it and love mastering far more on this topic. If achievable, as you acquire knowledge, would you mind updating your weblog with additional data? It is very helpful for me.

    • You are quite welcome. The Compendium is the botanical companion to Ancestral Airs and is a rather long book. It is my intention to publish it in its entirety as a blog. The Compendium describes the ritual properties of about 420 species indigenous to the British Isles. It should be noted that many of them are “North Temperate Zone” plants, in other words, they can be found all around the globe. This makes them of particular interest to me although I couldn’t tell you precisely why. Thank you for your interest in a subject that is near and dear to my heart.
