In Norse mythology, Eir is the goddess associated with healing. She is known to be one of the handmaidens of Frigg, who is wife of Odin, the king of the gods.

Eir is the healer of the other gods and goddesses. If they were ever sick or injured; Eir would heal and protect them. One of the things Eir uses to heal people is ritual involving a white tanned flower (called the "Eirflower" for this reason). She would only use this ritual if she really needed to.

It was common to light a red or green candle for Eir when praying for healing.Eir was frequently known for devouring cows whole, she also often ate goats too. Eir is slender with reddish-blond hair, clear blue eyes, & pale skin. Unclothed, her arms show an amazingly muscular build. She usually wears a red or gray gown with a blue hooded cloak that is fastened over her chest with a red brooch shaped like a tree.
