Natural Wood Wand *Blackthorn* Excellent for Protection!

This is a beautiful wand made from the wood of a Blackthorn tree. It's a comfortable size to work with whilst still being small enough to be easily transportable should you need to travel to rituals. There are twelve knots progressing along towards the tip in a widdershins spiral, and each one is different. They range from barely noticeable dots up to the huge and rather splendid one at the tip. Some of them show signs of old damage, where the side shoots were broken off while the tree was still growing, and there are a couple of small deep fissures close to the handle end where this branch was rubbed by another. The bark is a gorgeous glossy rich mahogany colour that's not only stunning in its own right, but also makes a perfect foil for the rich russet tone of the exposed wood. The tactile contrast is also fascinating, making you want to keep running your fingertips along the surface. A truly classic Blackthorn wand, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

In common with most Blackthorn wands, I don't think this would be suitable for a novice. I can see it settling down well with an older person, man or woman, but not with anyone very young. It has an abundance of the rather forbidding, steely toughness that's so characteristic of this type of wood and is the main reason why I love it so much... as well as the main reason why so many folks don't like it at all. I like it a lot, which is no surprise as Blackthorn's my favourite wood and I've never yet had anything made from it that I haven't wanted to keep! It feels tough and protective, like a battered old warrior, and I feel sure that whoever it calls will wonder how they ever got along without it.

Also known as Quickthorn or Sloe. Blackthorn provides very strong protection, especially of the home, and can be used in magic to deter unwanted visitors. It is said to protect against malevolent magic. It can also be used in exorcism.

Size: Eleven and three eighths inches long and about five eighths of an inch thick.
291mm x 16mm.

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

Please be aware that some countries do not allow the importation of any wooden items that still have the bark attached. It is up to you to ensure that an item is not in breach of the customs regulations of your country before you buy.
