Skullcap - Worn by women to keep their husbands faithful. Used in sleep pillows for relaxation & peace. Used to bind oaths and consecrate vows & commitments (handfasting, initiations, etc.). Used in bath magick to clam the aura of tensions and stress. Burned for relief of disharmony and disruptive situations. Place a pinch in a lover's shoes to keep then from being affected by charms of others.
There was a surge of emigration in the early 1700's to America among the Scots Irish, also known as the Ulster Scots. - this is the source I used for a paper I wrote in college. I have been looking for it for years!
This is a treasure trove of migration patterns for Irish and Scots. You have to look past the fact they call Scots, Scotch...which is a drink. There was a time when this was an acceptable term. This is an excellent resource. Enjoy and learn.
