    Protective Egg Charm

    Take an egg and, by poking small holes at each end of it, empty it out.
    Fill the egg with Cinquefoil leaf and Dogwood, then tape the holes shut.
    You can decorate the egg with Runes or symbols of protection, or you can leave it natural.
    Put it on your hearth.
    Your home and property will be protected.

    Seed egg

    1 .Poke a tiny hole in both ends of an egg & very gently blow out the "stuffing".
    1. Then decorate the egg with symbols or write our hopes, etc on them.( A listing of colors and their meanings can be found in "The Sabbats" by Edain McCoy if you wish to use it.)
    2. Make one of the holes a little bigger & into it place herb seeds. Along with the seeds place your intentions of what we would like to see grow in our lives.
    3. Then go outside, cast a circle, dig a hole & place your eggs into the hole. Hence you have planted the seeds of growth! If The ground is still frozen then you can plant into a planter and start a patio garden plant to be taken out when it warms.
