Eir ("mercy") is a Norse Goddess of Healing. She knew the secret powers of herbs, with which she could even resurrect the dead. Patroness of shadow workers, called on against sickness or injury. She gives both physical and psychic means of healing; shamanic healing, especially, falls into her realm. Eir is a companion of the goddess Frigga.

Eir (Old Norse "help, mercy) is a goddess and/or valkyrie associated with medical skill. Eir is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the century from earlier traditional sources; the Prose Edda, written in the century by Snorri Sturluson.
