Leaf Symbolism

Leaf Symbolism

Trees and leaves have deep-rooted symbolic meaning in virtually every culture on earth. Forests are the abode of the nature spirits, leprechauns and sasquatches. Forests are a refuge from danger, a source of food and ancient healing roots,  home to wild animals and singing birds. Forests provide us with wood and paper and oxygen. Forests are alive, mysterious and constantly changing. Trees, with their whispering leaves, are at the heart of Mother Nature.

The symbolism of trees and leaves is apparent in common metaphors such as the Tree of Life, our ancestral heritage depicted in ‘family trees’, how we ‘put down roots’ when we create lasting relationships, and in the phrase ‘turning over a new leaf’ when we experience significant change for the better. Trees and leaves are ubiquitous in the fabric of our lives.

Perhaps you know someone who deserves a very special gift – a gift that symbolizes how you think and feel about them. Or perhaps YOU would enjoy wearing a symbol from Nature that celebrates a change, an achievement, a belief, or a dream…and the gift should be to yourself.
