Clearing * Protective * Letting Go
Rue is an ancient plant that has been used to clear and protect. In the Middle Ages, the church would dip Rue branches in Holy Water and splash it around the church to cleanse and bless it. It has even been used in exorcisms to release entities and in medical elixirs during plagues.
I use Rue oil on a regular basis to clear away energies that aren't my own (while I use Mugwort to shift and clear my own energy). It's always in my purse in case I just need a quick and thorough energy clearing.
It's particularly helpful with clients who find themselves struggling to let go of a certain idea or situation, helping them to move on. She is an amazing ally in the journey of self-discovery or grief.
