Unique Natural Wood Wand *Apple* for Abundance!

This is a truly fabulous wand made from the wood of an old Apple tree. It has an overall gentle curve, but what really sets it apart are the two knobbly areas at the handle. Contrary to what you might think, these form a surprisingly comfortable grip, and can be held in a number of different ways depending on the size of your hand, not to mention the fact that they make this beautiful wand truly unique and unrepeatable. These knobbly sections are perfectly natural and are in fact quite common in old Apple trees that are not treated with chemicals. They are the tree's natural defence against fungal infection in an area of damaged bark, and the branch beyond continues to grow normally. However, they cause a weakness on the branch so they need to be pruned away before the branch gets heavy enough to break at that point. Apart from these knobbles, there is a darkened area of wood showing an old area of rubbing damage to the bark, a single large knot and numerous tiny ones. The wood is a colourful but subtle mix of rich warm tones and the silky smoothness is a tactile delight.

I think this wand appears to have rather a forceful personality for Apple, there's nothing of the shrinking violet about it at all. It's outgoing and somewhat "in your face", but not in a bad way, more as a consequence of enthusiasm and a sunny disposition. I suspect it may prove to be a little stubborn or impetuous, and will need someone not only experienced but with a strong will to keep it in check. I wish that didn't sound quite so negative, because there's really nothing malicious about this wand at all, it's just a bit... well... enthusiastic. It's largely a matter of scale; it reminds me a little of when one of my dogs was still young and he used to come bounding in wagging his tail and jumping around, so full of joy and energy that the entire contents of the room would be scattered. That's all very well with a Chihuahua, it doesn't take any skill or strength to pick it up under your arm to prevent further mishap, but my dogs are Great Danes and that's a whole different story! LOL So, I think this wand needs someone experienced, probably an older man or woman, to be able to successfully cope with the surfeit of energy.

Apple is probably the best choice for any kind of fertility spells, or any magic to do with increase, plenty or abundance. It is a good protector of the home and cultivated land, and is said to be good for gardening magic. Traditionally, the home of the Unicorn is said to be beneath the Apple tree, and it is also where he is most easily caught. Legend tells us if a pure young woman sits quietly under an Apple tree, the Unicorn will come and gently lay his head in her lap and allow her to feed him apples.

Size: Thirteen and a quarter inches long and around half an inch thick.
339mm x 14mm.

Because I believe my items should give you a lifetime of service and in return they deserve to be properly looked after, I have always included detailed care instructions with all items purchased. Wood is not a lifeless material and needs to be treated accordingly, but this isn’t difficult and shouldn’t be expensive, which is why I only ever use treatments which are readily available and easily accessible. It might sound impressive to be able to say to you that I use my own secret blend of exotic oils and waxes, but that’s not much help when you’ve dropped your wand in a muddy puddle and want to know how to get it looking its best again! LOL

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

For a full list of the woods I might have available as well as their magical properties, associated folklore and a bunch of other stuff, check out my blog at: http://www.mazedasastoat.blogspot.com/
