  • Eir, Norse Goddess, Valkyrie, and Healer Wood Carving Statue

    Eir is the goddess of herbs and healing in Norse Mythology. Her name means mercy/healing, and she is known for her compassion.

    She is one of the handmaids of Frigga and is also listed as one of the handmaids – or Valkyrjur – of Óðin. She is attested to in the Prose Edda, the Poetic Edda, and Svipdagsmal. Additionally, she is attested to in skaldic poetry, and runic inscriptions. She is named as a goddess who oversees childbirth.

    As a Valkyrie, Eir accompanied her battle-sisters. While the other Valkyries chose the slain, Eir would choose who would live and recover, and return to health. As a chooser of life and death, she is sometimes associated with the Norns. Although Snorri does not explicitly name her as one of the asunjar, he also does not name every goddess counted in this number. He does however go on to say that Eir is among the most important of all goddesses.
