The following suggestions will help you create a fairy-welcoming atmosphere in your home:
The most effective way to invite fairies to your home is to plant their favorite flowers. Fairies share the same habitat as hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees. Flowers that attract these creatures will also attract fairies.Bluebells, foxglove, forget-me-nots, heather, hollyhocks, lilacs, lilies, marigolds, pansies, peonies, primrose, and roses are flowers beloved by the wee folk.
In addition to flowers, clover, ferns, and thyme are plants especially attractive to fairies. Oak trees hold special powers for fairies.
Since fairies are sensitive, it is best not to refer to them directly. They find the name fairy particularly offensive. If you must talk about them, you may use the terms: wee folk, good folk, or the gentry.
Fairies enjoy both well-manicured and wild areas in gardens. It is good idea to reserve a special corner in your garden for fairy use. Placing a special statue or a small fountain in such an area is much appreciated by the wee folk.
Leave out a food offering over night. Fairies especially love dairy products, bread, cakes, and cookies. Dont despair if in the morning it doesnt look like the meal has been eaten. Fairies are able to extract the essence of food without physically eating it. Food should be discarded after a day or two, since it will have little nutritional value left for the fairy. If an animal should approach the food dont chase it away! Sometimes a shy fairy will assume the shape of an animal to accept its present.
Fairies love water. Fountains, bird baths, ponds, and streams will all attract fairies.
Abodes of various types are appreciated by fairies. Using rocks, caves can be made at the base of rose bushes. A bird-house can be easily adapted for fairy use by adding bright colors, dollhouse furniture, and glitter to the inside. Toadstools and mushrooms (real or fake) are also a favorite of the wee folk. Colored stones and crystals, especially in a water-filled bird-bath, will attract fairies.
Set aside a table top or a corner for an altar, where you can leave offerings for your fairy friends in a basket. Offerings may be food, flowers, herbs, pretty leaves, stones, or anything else you think your fairy might like.
Keep your home reasonably tidy, as fairies hate a mess.
Most important of all, you must cultivate a sense of reverence, wonder, and funas these are qualities necessary to befriend a fairy.
