Fairy Jars, or Fairies in Jars, are unique items found throughout Skyrim and Solstheim. A total of nine jars can be found, each with a different color Fairy trapped within.
Using a Fairy in a Jar in the inventory releases the Fairy, grants a brief blessing, and allows the Fairy to be recruited from a Fairy Font.

Background and Inspiration Edit
Fairy Jars were added to Relics of Hyrule in version 6.3. They are modified from the Torchbug in a Jar item.
JKalenad's original plan was to allow the player to catch hint Fairies in glass jars and release them in battle if needed. The Fairies would have also served to protect the player from death and no Fairy recruitment system was planned. JKalenad opted instead to disable hint Fairies when a location was looted, and to add unique jars containing the nine Fairy colors. JKalenad felt that releasing already trapped Fairies was more fitting for Relics of Hyrule, given that it was less restrictive than catching them in jars, and connected well with the scavenger hunt design of the mod, as well as the trapped bugs from the Skyrim base game. He also felt that it was more respectful of the Fairies themselves and gave them a reason to protect the player in battle.
JKalenad has plans to expand the blessings of the fairies to be similar to the extra effects of the Red Fairy, namely that certain skills will be fortified in addition to a Fairy's standard effects. The fortification will also be lowered to 10%.
