Eir ("mercy") is a Norse Goddess of Healing. She knew the secret powers of herbs, with which she could even resurrect the dead. Patroness of shadow workers, called on against sickness or injury. She gives both physical and psychic means of healing; shamanic healing, especially, falls into her realm. Eir is a companion of the goddess Frigga.
