This may sound silly, so forgive me, but last week this time I *knew* 4-leaf clovers really did not occur in nature. I never found one as a kid and was totally convinced that all those who said they had were being less than truthful. While looking up the names of some of the plants the neighbor put in my yard, I came across some info on clovers. Supposedly 1 in 10,000 has 4 leaves. Those odds aren't bad considering how many I have now since cancelling Scott's lawn service.
I decided to look with the kids, and don't you know I actually found one. I was simply amazed, but my youngest started crying lol. I told him pretty firmly not to pout, and that's not how you get things done. I told him if I found one he would too and to get up and look. Two minutes later he had a HUGE one. One minute after that he had a big one for his brother. Now they want me to fire the landscaper so he doesn't cut all the clovers away.
I've looked online for info on laminating as well as putting them in resin, but I was also wondering like kyleskonjure if it's okay to put oil on them without destroying them or causing them to lose their color.
Also, I know we all have different perspectives on things, but I wouldn't see the harm in adding one to a mojo or oil or powder in its ground state if you have clovers to spare. Just like violet leaves resemble hearts, they don't lose their qualities when dried and crushed. That's just my take on it anyway. If I had tons of 4 leaf clovers, some would def be in an oil lol.
As for clovers with more than 4 leaves, they're supposedly not more powerful/lucky according to what I found online. However, considering how much more rare they are, I'm sure opinions on that one will vary. I guess it's said they're not because each of the leaves has a particular meaning. In one version the Father, Son, Holy Spirit, and G-D's grace would be the fourth. In the other version, it's faith, hope, love, and luck.
I'm sure you could always laminate them to 2 a dollar bill, or other special money.
