Natural Wood Bullroarer *English Ash* Helps Provide Focus!

This is a bullroarer, made from a truly beautiful piece of Ash wood. Bullroarers are whirled round on the end of a length of cord and as they twist through the air they create a sound quite unlike anything else; an atmospheric hum that seems to resonate with the very bones of Mother Earth and can be varied with the speed of the swing as well as the length of the cord. They are used to call the spirits of the ancestors or local guardians, or to keep away any malevolent entities. Although most commonly associated with the Australian aboriginal people, artifacts like this have been found connected to many primitive cultures throughout the world and are increasingly being used by modern witches and pagans of all kinds to create sacred space.

I chose Ash wood because it's such a useful aid to bringing focus to your mind, and it can help you to discard all the cares of the everyday and get into the mindset required for spell casting, or ritual of any kind. The wood shows the bold graining typical of Ash timber, and has some wonderful iridescence and a small dark knot on one side close to the edge. It comes with about four feet of waxed cotton cord attached with a knot that won't twist loose (especially important if you want to avoid the hazard of high-speed flying missiles or the hassle of trying to find it in the surrounding undergrowth!) I use waxed cotton cord because unlike most types of cord or string it is braided, not twisted. Twisted cord will unravel over time from the constant twisting of the wooden blade in the air, which has a weakening effect on the cord as well as looking unsightly. However, even this type of braided cord will wear out eventually, and no knot is infallible, so please check it at regular intervals and replace it if neccessary.

As usual, all the work was done the traditional way by hand, with no help from power tools of any kind. Both the cord and the oiled finish are completely free of animal products and there are no metal parts.

I can make bullroarers from any wood I have that's suitable, either larger or smaller than this one, a slightly different shape, or with runes or other symbols burnt into the wood. I can also add a bead or toggle handle to the end of the cord to ensure it doesn't cut into your fingers during particularly energetic swinging and make it easier to hang on to. Just drop me a convo if you'd like one custom made to your own specifications, the only criterion for bullroarers is that the piece of wood be fairly thin and longer than it is wide.

Best known for being Yggdrasil the World Tree in the Northern Tradition, Ash has a powerful affinity with the powers residing in water. It is good for magic to do with healing and karma, and is said to provide protection from drowning. It can be used in spells that require focus and strength and it is said to banish mental strife. It is said that an Ash staff hung above the door will ensure protection of the home.

Size: About seven and a quarter inches long, an inch and three quarters wide and less than a quarter of an inch thick.
183mm x 44mm x 5mm.

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

Please exercise common sense whilst using this bullroarer... if you bash it against animals or people it will hurt, and if you bash it against things like walls, ceilings, furniture or trees then something's likely to get damaged. This is not a toy and is designed to be used only by responsible pagan adults.
