What's in a Name!
The Celtic Goddess Airmid is one of healing and was especially noted for her passion for using herbs. Airmid is from the Irish race of Gods known as the Tuatha De Danann. She was the daughter of the head physician and healer of the Tuatha De Danann, Dian Cécht. He was a jealous Father and legend has it, when Airmid's brother Miach began to show that he was an excellent healer, his father killed him in a jealous rage.
Airmid began to visit the grave of her brother frequently where she found 365 healing herbs growing from his grave, one for each joint and organ of his body. She carefully collected the herbs, noted their healing properties and arranged them on her cloak in relation to their use on the body. Dian Cécht discovered what she was doing and shook the cloak to dispose of the knowledge, thus the full wisdom of the herbal healing is now lost to all, save Airmid herself.
