Ancient Greeks believed buckthorn would drive away all enchantments and sorceries if sprinkled around a home or business. It was also carried to ensure favourable outcomes in legal matters. A folklore take says that if you dance within a sprinkled circle of buckthorn under the full moon, an elf of the Fae will appear - if you shout "Halt and grant my boon" before they flee, you will be granted a singular wish.
This is available in two choices of packaging:
