Healer to the gods


Eir is mentioned in both Eddas, and identified as one skilled in the art of medicine and healing. Her name is also often used as a kenning for women in Skaldic poetry. Although little else is known about Eir and there is some debate as to whether she was seen as a goddess or a valkyrie (The Prose Edda lists her first as one, and later as the other), she remains popular among healers to this day. Eir is often depicted with a bag of herbs, mortar and pestle, and similar symbols of healing.
