The Viking's "Lyfstein"/Life Stone

Eir, Vikings, healing, goddess, crystals, stones - Mental Professionals, Dietikon, Zürich
Eir was the healing goddess of the Vikings.

The Vikings, according to saga poetry and grave toms, seems to have been used crystals and stones linked to both health, healing and struggle/war activity.


Both in Iceland and Norway it has been found and examined digs where it has been found rocks that have been interpreted like such life stones. In the saga poetry we find several examples that the livestone is referred to as amulets. The crystals/stones were used to attach to the sword and it was carried in a purse around the neck of the Viking.


Some stones that has been found in the grave tombs have holes in, and one can imagine this have been for to easier carry them and tie them on. The crystals/stones were usually small, transparent, square stone, that
apparently has been in a purse in the grave. There are findings of  Zeolite, transparent Stalactite, Quartz, Flint and stones in colors like light blue, dark and  white, that is not specified. In many cases these stones had an unusual shape; like a human hand, egg-shaped, a wooden shoe an other special shapes.


Researchers assume that the Lifestone was used in different ways; like hung on or rubbed on the wound, and sometimes crushed to powder to put on the wound. Except from good health and luck, it seems like the crystals and stones also should bring happiness to the deceased in the world of death.


Crystals/stones and amulets have been one important part of healing and protective performances in the Norse/Viking society.



So why not try the same treatment as the Vikings, they for sure were successful :)
