Tree Faery/ Earth Connection Jar

Specifically tailored for a pine faery who lives by my home, but you can use this to draw close to any tree or earth fae.

  • Salt
  • Moss
  • Lichen
  • Cedar wood oil
  • Pine oil
  • Pine needles
  • Tiny pinecone buds
  • Rosemary oil
  • Tea tree oil
  • Rainwater
  • Sage leaves
  • Small mushrooms
  • Bark pieces 

Fill jar with salt and moss and the bottom to hold scents and a few drops of rainwater. Bury in a plant pot overnight and then dig up in the morning.

I’m all for fantasy stories where supernatural characters protect their human friends, but does anyone else want some stories where the humans are the ones who are looking after their supernatural friends?


  • A human girl exchanging her silver engagement ring for a cheaper one after she realises why her werewolf friend has been refusing to high five her.
  • A group of humans throwing coats over their vampire friend because he forgot it was the Summer solstice and was caught out by the sunrise. Those same friends coming to visit him when he wakes up in the late afternoon, bringing him blood from the butcher’s and putting up with his whining about the nights being shorter.
  • A human hearing that someone stole their selkie friends pelt and coming over to her new “husband"s house immediately and threatening to punch his lights out unless he tells them where it is.
  • Humans petitioning the counsel to build a wooden climbing frame in the local playground because the old one has iron parts and their fairy friend’s kids can’t use it without burning themselves.


I’ll post more if I can come up with any.

Safety and protection with fae

Originally posted by thedisneygirlnextdoor

I personally love the fae, but I know many people would rather stay far away (and of course it’s very important to know safety guidelines whether you do or not!) so here’s some information I’ve collected.

From many different sources:

  1. Never use your real name when interacting with fae, or they can take control over you
  2. Always be polite and respectful and do your best not to offend. Remember, better safe than sorry
  3. As a general rule, don’t eat food when visiting the fae realm. This will make you a captive, unable to leave, and often the food isn’t as wonderful as it may seem, and only glamoured rocks, mud and sticks. (It’s said faeries will take offense if you don’t accept food they offer to you in our own world though)
  4. Do not think yourself more clever than them or try to swindle them; you will end up in very hot water
  5. You may not want to accept faerie money.. as again, it is often glamoured and will turn back into leaves and acorns soon after
  6. Do not blindly intrude were you are not wanted (fairy rings, sacred faerie places, etc) Always ask first and respect their answer!
  7. Should you find you’ve wandered into a place where you feel strong malevolent energy or evil presence and experience “faerie terror”, back away slowly, don’t run or you might get lost. Send out your good will, and if you can, throw up a bubble/egg ward to protect yourself
  8. Do not to take the fae lightly or seek them half-heartedly. Take care not to act as if they were weak, harmless or lenient. It is very foolish to underestimate them. Faeries are not strictly good or evil (neither are humans), and respect and caution are always best
  9. Salt and iron (tools made from iron, a nail in your pocket) are traditional faerie deterrents
  10. Three leaf clovers can be carried as a protective charm, and four leaf ones can break through faerie magic or allow you to see hidden fae (note some traditions say you should have multiple clovers as each will only work once)
  11. Wearing St. John’s Wort will give you strong protection from faerie magic
  12. As will wearing a daisy
  13. Carrying a rowan twig, or hanging one over your door, that was collected on Betaine may bring protection
  14. Flipping your clothes inside out can prevent faerie mischief by its unexpectedness 
  15. Visualisation wards can be effective
  16. Scatter primrose petals outside your door to keep faeries at bay by creating a barrier
  17. If you hear bluebells chime it is a warning that danger or faerie enchantments are near
  18. Putting a daisy chain on a child is said to protect them from being taken as a changeling
  19. Forget me nots can be used for faerie protection
  20. If you’re friendly with any other faeries, you may ask them for protection against ill-willed fae
  21. Faeries will avoid gardens with tomato plants
  22. Make a bundle of twigs from the trees of the faerie triad, oak ash and thorn, and carry it for protection (it will only work if they’re bound together, if separate, they are an invitation to the fae)
  23. One traditional faerie protection is placing mirrors throughout your home
  24.  Cats may chase away faeries
  25. The sound of heavy iron bells and chimes may drive them away
  26. Leaving out gifts of honey and milk can appease the fae if you wish them to leave you alone
