Holly Wood


 Associated by Druidic tradition to the grand majesty of the Unicorn. Holly is one of the most fiery of woods and second only to Oak for its sacred regard by the Druids. The Gaelic “tinne” is thought to mean “fire.”  Holly has been regarded as a powerful protective wood, good against evil spirits, poisons, angry elementals, and lightning.
