Eir (pronounced AIR) is the Norse Goddess of healing. She is one of Frigg‘s twelve handmaidens, and is also named in a list of the Valkyries. Eir was called upon for healing especially by women, and any woman who climbed the mountain on which she lived would return healed. Her name, which means “mercy,” is also seen as Eil, Eira, Eria, and Eyra.
