b2ap3_thumbnail_cornucopia.jpgHere are some suggested offerings for Frey:

  • FOOD: Pork, poultry, possibly fish. Root vegetables such as potatoes and turnips, also garden vegetables such as squash and tomatoes. Frey is also partial to cherries and raspberries, and is very fond of homemade whole-grain bread, especially if the bread is sliced with local honey on top. Wholegrain crackers and good cheese are another good offering.
  • DRINK: Dark beer, dark ale, stout. For nonalcoholic beverages he will take apple cider, lemonade, vegetable juice, or cherry juice. He also likes herbal teas, including teas with berry flavors (such as raspberry).
  • CANDLES: Frey likes golden-yellow or leaf-green candles, earth tones or white will suffice.
  • INCENSE: “Sensual” scents such as musk, sandalwood, and patchouli, but also “rain” is very much enjoyed.
  • OTHER OFFERINGS: Gold dollar coins, lucky pennies, green or honey amber stones, as well as figurines of boars, stallions, stags, and ships. A cup or jar of whole-wheat flour, or barley. A sheaf of wheat. Antlers. Your sexual fluids. If you can afford it (or better, craft it yourself), a torc or sword would also be a fine gift to put on his harrow.

Frey has five primary ways of manifesting in the world. He is all five, at once, but some people see more of one or two than the others, and his dominant face changes at different points of the year. Here are my observations on the various sides of Frey.

b2ap3_thumbnail_freyr.jpgFreyr or (anglicized) Frey: Means “lord”.  Is considered more of an epithet or title rather than his personal name.  The Old English (Anglo-Saxon) version is Fréa (curiously, the Old English version of his sister’s title is Fréo, pronounced “Frowe”).

Ingvi, Ingui or Ing: His personal name, which the ancient Germanic tribe of Ingaevones is named for, who were said to dwell next to the ocean, consisting of the Cimbri, Teutons, and Chauci tribes; the Ingaevones form the majority of the Anglo-Saxon settlement in Britain, and the linguistic scholar Noah Webster speculated they gave England its name. At the very least, an Ingui is listed in the Anglo-Saxon royal house of Bernicia, and he was probably seen as the progenitor of all Anglian kings. Ing is most likely one and the same as Yngvi, the founder of the Yngling dynasty of Sweden. In the Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem, a rune is named for him, with the corresponding verse
