Another theory is that evergreens were used to protect against evil due to their strong sterilizing and antibacterial effects, while the berries and ears of barley served as talismans promoting abundant harvests, making the original wreath something of a good-luck charm. Today, the wreath generally serves a merely decorative purpose. This ivy wreath features a stylish design with an ivy motif.
