Sweet Woodruff is an herbaceous mat-forming perennial native to Europe, North Africa, and western Asia. Sweet Woodruff grows 6-12 inches white flowers in partial to full shade that typically bloom in April or May. The plant has a sweet, hay-like fragrance derived from coumarin.
The aromatic intensity of woodruff intensifies when it is dried, making it a popular addition to sachets and potpourris. Sweet woodruff plants have also been used commercially in perfumes. The leaves are used to flavor teas and cold fruit drinks. The flowers (usually fresh) are used in the preparation of May wine (called "Maiwein" or "Maibowle" in German), which is a punch made from white wine flavored with woodruff, orange and pineapple and sweetened with a little sugar.
In magick, Sweet Woodruff is ruled by Mars and Fire. It has strong associations with Victory, Protection, which is why over the ages it has been used by all types of athletes as a good luck charm. It can also be used to add a boost to Money Magick.
