This is a beautiful wand made from the wood of my ancient Plum tree that finally succumbed to the elements last winter. It's very straight and an immensely comfortable size to work with, being neither large enough to be a hazard to light fittings and furniture whilst working indoors, nor small enough to feel insignificant if performing ritual in a larger outdoor space. The wood has seasoned to a warm mix of mellow russet shades and features two opposite spirals along the whole length; one deosil in the grain and the other widdershins in the knots, making it ideal for spells designed either to attract or repel various influences. Genuinely a wand for every occasion!
I think this wand seems gentle and caring, as well as rather quiet and reserved. It also has a kind of ageless feel, and an air of quiet competence. Plum wood is one of the few wand woods to make its influence felt just by being in the vicinity, so the mere presence of this wand in your home should help to keep negativity at bay, which has to be a good thing! :-) I believe it would best suit a woman of any age, and would be perfect for a novice with little experience of the Craft. I feel sure that if you turn out to be the rightful owner then you will soon find that this wand will become the first one you reach for in any situation.
Plum is excellent for all aspects of healing, and is also a good protector as it helps to disperse negative energy and evil. It makes a first class general purpose wand.
Size: Twelve inches long and five eighths of an inch thick.
306mm x 15mm.
It will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture of the actual wand, consecration suggestions and care instructions.
All my wands are, by their very nature, unique. They are grown, not made. They are all formed from twigs and branches lost naturally by the native trees in and around the perimeter of my totally organic garden. The wood is collected, identified, and sorted, then stored for several months to ensure it is properly seasoned. Then it is smoothed into the right size and shape for that particular twig. Finally, each wand is given at least two coats of organic vegetable-derived oil to protect and nourish the wood. This oil contains no chemicals or preservatives and is exactly as it comes from the press. I will not cut trees to get the wood, and if I’ve used prunings I’ll say so. I will not use power tools of any kind, and I certainly won’t use any artificial chemical substances such as stain, dye, paint, or glue. If you like, you can embellish your wand in whatever way you choose, with paint, carving, cords, ribbons and crystals, but I leave them as pure and natural as possible while still being beautiful, practical and non-splintery. All wands will be given another coat of oil before dispatch, wrapped in paper, padded with shredded paper and posted with their relevant literature in a stout tube or custom made box to ensure safe arrival. All the packaging material is reused, recycled and/or recyclable, so please dispose of it thoughtfully.
