Stripped of its bark, Birch is the traditional Yule Log.
Traditionally, Birch twigs were used to light the Beltane fires, and couples paired off to the Birch forests.

LESSON OF THE BIRCH
from The Wisdom of Trees by Jane Gifford
The birch tree symbolizes a fresh start and can bring courage and determination to those of us who are treading the path of spiritual growth and development
for the first time.
Although the birch does appear fragile, it is in fact extremely hardy. This teaches us that in apparent weakness there is often to be found great strength.
The birch also promises new life and love, and is a potent symbol of purification and renewal, which focuses our attention on our potential for the change and on the consideration of new directions and goals to be experienced in our lives.
It teaches the lesson of unselfishness and of caring for the needs of others in ways that help them to flourish of their own accord.
Hyssop is your herb of the month. It comes from the mint family and is loved by bees. Anytime you see a flower or plant loved by bees it is a good indication that is has health restorative powers.
Hyssop is used to completely clear the energy of a person, place or memory.
To me it has an aroma similar to rosemary but it has more of a cooling affect with infused in an oil. It is great for joint pain, uric acid build up and sour stomach. A little goes a long way and I found that it makes a better topical medicine than an edible.
This herb will also protect against unwanted spirit contact and nightmares.
