Magical Uses: Clover is associated with the Triple Goddess and used in rituals for beauty, youth, fertility, healing, and calming mental illness. If you’re lucky enough to find a four-leaf clover you luck will be plentiful, and prosperity will abound. Four-leaf clovers are also associated with the realm of the fae and are said to be a key to seeing their presence.
Other uses: As a tea, clover will help alleviate a cough, boost metabolism and even improve fertility in women or ease menopausal symptoms. There’s still more though! Clover will also calm skin irritation, and has been used to treat tumors and swollen glands as a poultice or warm compress.
For best results with skin and gland problems, you will want to use both clover tea and a compress on the affected area at least once per day.
Clover is safe to use with children, but is not recommended for those who are pregnant or already taking blood thinners due to it’s ability to thin the blood over time. Regular clover use should also be stopped at least 1 week prior to surgery for this reason.
