Ever want to get in contact with the Fae? Leaving an offering is the best way. Set down something wonderful and prepare for mischief and trouble!
- Water from a spring, river, or purified water
- Milk or cream
- Small palm-sized petite fours or cakes
- Unwrapped candy
- St. John’s Wort
- Bouquets of flowers
- Other fresh fruit
- Silver or gold
- Shiny objects
- Interesting stones
- Spirit house
- Faery garden
- Cheerful music
Of course, these are just some of the offerings that can be made. Some fae will appreciate some gifts better than others. Some items are merely associated with the fae and may interest them, if not precisely count as an offering.
You may also want to double check whether your offerings are also good for the environment. The fae may enjoy a cookie but the wildlife probably won’t.
Remember your fairy tales! Don’t eat anything, don’t offer up your name (instead say something like “you may call me X”), and don’t agree to anything!
