Salve | Refuge | Cinquefoil | Five Finger Grass | Luck | Love | Prosperity | Abundance
Cinquefoil has a long history in southern folk magic and treatments. As a topical treatment it's been know to be used for cramps, spasms, and discomfort. In magical lore it's associated with many uses. Also called Five Finger Grass, the fingers represent strength, money, love, health, and wisdom. It is also deeply associated with protection spells and is often used in combination with other herbs for such goals. Cinquefoil is a noted ingredient in Flying Salves as well. It is revered in New Orleans Root Work and Conjure circles. Cinquefoil has been used by practitioners through generations for many types of petitions. It is a flexible, wise, pragmatic, and strong herb.
This is a Shea butter based salve. We used a warm infusion with Organic Cinquefoil and select other ingredients. Cinquefoil has a beautiful medium herbaceous scent with grassy, woody notes and a smooth finish.
We personally associate this product and Cinquefoil with Psalm 46 which is also where the name Refuge comes from.
