Hygie's cup... What are the powers of this lucky charm?

The Hygieian Cup has been used as a lucky symbol by pharmacists for over 200 years.

Since then, it has been adopted by a number of national pharmacy associations, including those in the United States, Canada, Australia and many European countries.

In Greek and Roman mythology, the goddess Hygeia is associated with health, cleanliness and sanitation.

While her father, Asclepius, was directly associated with healing, Hygeia was instead revered for her ability to prevent disease. (It is also from its name that the French word “hygiene” comes.)

When we look at this brooch from the cup of Hygieia, we may wonder what a snake is doing around this Greek and Roman lucky charm...

In fact, the temples dedicated to the goddess Hygeia had the particularity of welcoming snakes which could then circulate freely there.

In addition, many remedies from ancient medicine included snake venom in their composition.

No doubt, the Hygie cup is a good luck charm linked to health!

Some believe that wearing this brooch helps attract the favors of the goddess Hygeia, and therefore wards off certain evils.

Others wear the Hygie Cup to show their respect to healthcare workers in general.

Everyone has their own opinion on the matter, right?
