Nettle Bloodstone Amulets

Real nettle leaf amulet with bloodstone cabochon plated in pure copper on a 28″ black genuine deerskin lace cord

SOLD OUT

These nettle amulets were handmade from nettle leaves personally grown from seed, harvested, and then plated in pure copper through a process known as electroplating. Each amulet contains a real nettle leaf inside affixed with a bloodstone cabochon, which adds to their martial and protective nature. Both nettle leaves and bloodstone have been used throughout history as protective amulets. These may be worn on the body, carried, or hung.

According to Cornelius Agrippa in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy, Nettle and bloodstone are ruled by the planet Mars.

Pliny the Elder speaking of bloodstone in his Natural History recounts that:
they say that, if it is combined with the plant heliotropium, and certain incantations are then repeated over it, it will render the person invisible who carries it about him.

In the Grand Grimoire, or Le Dragon Rouge the user is instructed:
you will buy a bloodstone…and you will always carry it with you and it will preserve you from all fears and worries

As Paul Sédir states of Nettle in Occult Botany:
When worn as an amulet, it gives the bearer courage. This “herb of bravery” was sacred to medieval magicians, who gave it the Chaldean name roybra.

Dale Pendall writes of Nettle in The Green Mysteries:
As would be expected of a plant with such an aggressive magical character, humans have christened it with a host of rude names over time, including Devil’s Bears, Devil’s Plaything, and Burn Hazel…In Ukranian folk magic it was used as protection againsl witchcraft. Held in the hand with Yarrow, it was a preventative amulet against hauntings and infectious spirits. In England, it was used as a magical talisman against fear. Nettles placed in the window comprised an old Russian folk charm against witches on St. John’s Eve. Its aggressively protective nature was also highly regarded in Slavic folk magic; in Poland, Nettles were affixed to the exterior of the house as talismans against witches on Midsummer night.
