Natural Wood Wand *Hazel* the Celtic Tree of Wisdom!

This is a truly stunning wand made from the wood of a Hazel tree. I've removed the bark to showcase the bare wood, which is as smooth as glass under your fingertips as well as feeling almost warm. It has just the barest hint of a curve, so it can't be mistaken for a manufactured dowel and it's slightly oval on cross section so it sits perfectly in your hand. The fine grain is clearly visible and is in iridescent pinstripes of palest honey and buttermilk.There are a couple of small knots and a lot of tiny darkish marks that look like little squiggles drawn on in brown ink; my best guess is that these are caused by some kind of insect damage, but the bark was completely unscathed before I removed it so there was no indication of any kind of attack. The smoothness of the wood's surface gives this wand a tactile quality that's hard to resist.

This wand is just the epitome of what a wand made from such a classically magical wood ought to be. It's gentle but strong, feminine yet powerful, kind and protective all at once. I just can't imagine a better textbook example of how a Hazel wand should feel, and it makes me realise just exactly why Hazel is such a popular wand wood amongst witches of all persuasions, especially here in the UK. Ask practically any British witch the best wood for wands and they will almost universally say Hazel or Elder, and the two woods feature in most witch's tool collectons in one form or another. For anyone who has not yet experienced the true glory of Hazel, this wand would be a perfect introduction to the wood.

Hazel is an exceptionally magical tree, as well as being extremely useful on the physical plane. It is best known for being the Celtic Tree of Wisdom, and is said to bring luck, fertility, intelligence and inspiration. Together with Elder, it is said to be one of the best woods for wands. If you hang it in your window it will protect your house from lightning, and it is also supposed to help make wishes come true!

Size: Twelve and one eighth inches long and five eighths of an inch thick.
308mm x 17mm.

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