Natural Wood Wand *Elder* Embrace Your Inner Crone!

This is a simply beautiful wand made from the wood of that most magical of trees, the Elder. It's slightly oval in cross section, which means it's much more comfortable to hold on to than a completely round wand, and the central core of fluffy pith ensures thatit's feather light. It's not showy, although it's quiet beauty is excuisite if you take the trouble to look closely. The glass smooth surface of the wood shows a riot of soft, neutral shades, ranging from pale buttermilk and honey, through butter yellow to warm caramel. It is pretty straight overall, but four pairs of knots divide it neatly into five separate sections, and add a crookedness that makes it look exactly how a real witch's wand should look! Truly a wand with great beauty, that will also help increase your magical ability.

This wand has a beautiful, delicate look but underneath there seems to be a steely will and determination that's quite simply impossible to resist. It doesn't seem at all pushy or aggressive, but I have no doubt that it would make inexorable progress in anything it was turned to simply because it would not stop, slow down or turn aside until it's object was achieved... making the outcome almost inevitable. I don't think it's a wand for anyone but an experienced practitioner, and I believe it would best suit an older woman.

Elder is the retreat of the Elder Mother, powerful matriarch of the hedgerows, woods and semi-wild places. She is the one who takes revenge on the despoilers of the countryside, and you cross her at your peril. It is said that you should never burn Elder wood on your fire, or the Elder Mother will burn your house down in retaliation. The wood of the Elder tree is especially highly charged magically, and can add power to any magical undertaking. Along with Hazel, it is said to be one of the best woods for wands. It is seen as a threshold tree, guarding portals to other realms, and legend has it that it never gets struck by lightning. It is believed that an Elder stick will kill serpents and drive away robbers, and the twigs have been carried during wedding ceremonies for good luck. It can be used for protection or exorcism rituals, and to bring healing, prosperity or sleep. It is particularly good for making women more sexually attractive to men, and for increasing the male libido!

Size: Twelve and three quarter inches long and half an inch thick.
326mm x 13mm.

It will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture of the actual wand, consecration suggestions and care instructions.
