The Welsh flower goddess, Blodeuwedd (pronounced bluh-DIE-weth), was created from nine kinds of wildflowers – oak, meadowsweet, broom, cockle, bean, nettle, chestnut, primrose, and hawthorn – and given the name, flower-face.
Her Modern Energy
Two magicians created Blodeuwedd as a wife for Welsh hero, Llew Llaw. Her beauty proved to be only skin deep, however, when she betrayed him for the sake of a lover. The magicians discovered her treachery and, showing mercy, transformed her into an owl.
Blodeuwedd’s journey from radiance to her nocturnal existence represents the evolution of beauty – blossoming youth eventually wilts, but with this comes the wisdom of age.
Reconnect With Your Inner Blodeuwedd
Foster inner beauty by being charitable. You don’t need to give away money to be charitable – you could give a helping hand or a well-timed compliment.

What Would Blodeuwedd Do?
… If Blodeuwedd were in your situation she wouldn’t mourn the loss of her youthful radiance. Instead, she would embrace the wisdom of age that replaces youth.
