Archangel Michael

Hawthorn Berries of Mount Tabor

Hawthorn is traditionally a heart medicine, balancing irregularity.  It is a heart opener and a circulatory system ally.  There is also much lore as to its magical/ceremonial use...

The Hawthorn's connection to our heart energy has transcended many different aspects of our growth, both within our relationships with ourselves and each other, and in relation to our spiritual connection to the divine within and without. I believe that the Hawthorn is very much involved in humankind's evolution into the Aquarian age of a more open-hearted and humanitarian attitude to life, love and spirituality. I sense a willingness within the Hawthorn's energy to help us and be part of this transformation.  

These berries are from a huge, berry laden tree on Mount Tabor in Portland, OR.  I have heard several stories where people have gone off of their blood pressure meds after using hawthorn as a daily tonic.  VOW has hawthorn tincture preserved in organic apple cider vinegar and grain alcohol.
