Similarly, bees use the herbs as a marker to find their way back to their hive after traveling beyond the hive. Because of these views, Greeks would even rub hives with lemon balm to make bees feel welcome. The Greeks also believed very strongly in Melissa as a promoter of long life.

Energetic/Herblore: In India, the coconut palm tree is called kalpa vriksha, “the tree which provides all the necessities of life.” In the Philippines, it’s seen as the “tree of life.” It’s thought that Coconut trees originated in India 55-37 million years ago and self-populated the tropical world by floating on ocean currents for up to 100 days or 3000 miles. Their journey would end when the husk reached fertile ground where it could sprout and grow into a productive coconut palm within 6-10 years.
In the Hindu religion, Puja is the most important ritual that honours the deity or divine spirit and connects the devotee with the Gods. Both the fruits and leaves of a coconut are used during Puja. The coconut fruit is a representation of divine consciousness and is often presented with its leaves in a copper vessel called a ‘Kalasha’.
The coconut is so religiously significant that the Hindus neither cut this tree nor do they use its wood for fuel. In Tamil Nadu, the uprooting of a coconut sapling is considered equivalent to killing one’s own son. “If cracks appear on the trunk within ten years, the planter would die.” Possibly due to this belief it became a custom in Odisha to get coconuts planted by the oldest member of the family.
