Rare Natural Wood Wand *English Elm* for Love Magic!

This is a lovely wand made from the wood of an Elm tree. Sadly, due to the dreaded Dutch Elm Disease, these majestic trees are no longer a common feature of our countryside, but as they constantly send up suckers from their extensive speading root system, there are always several small trees growing in my hedge. They only get to be twelve or fifteen feet tall as they only live about twenty years before they succumb to the disease, so most years we have to remove one or two dead or dying ones. We use the wood for firewood and my crafting, depending on the size and just how "beetled" it is. This wand is made from a branch that is almost completely straight. I've removed the bark (actually, most of it falls off when the tree dies, so this isn't difficult) and trimmed the side shoots, then sanded the surface of the wood to a glassy smoothness. There is a fine black line forming an arrow shape on one side, roughly marking the transition from handle to shaft. The close fine grain is clearly visible, looking like iridescent pinstripes, and there are six noticeable knots evenly spaced along each side, showing perfectly the alternate arrangement of side shoots.

I think this wand has a rather regal air to it, dignified and slightly aloof. Ladylike and extremely polite, but with a core of strong will and independence. I believe it would enable you to attract love on your own terms, which after all is the only way to really enjoy it. I also think it could be useful in smoothing out any potentially tricky relationships that you may have with family members, which is probably the most troublesome form of love that there is. I don't think it would be suitable for a novice, although I don't believe age is particularly relevant in its rightful owner.

Elm can be used in any magic to do with love, whether romantic or any other kind.

Size: Ten and seven eighths inches long and between five eighths and three quarters of an inch thick.
276mm x 15-19mm.

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

All my wands are, by their very nature, unique. They are grown, not made. They are all formed from twigs and branches lost naturally by the native trees in and around the perimeter of my totally organic garden. The wood is collected, identified, and sorted, then stored for several months to ensure it is properly seasoned. Then it is smoothed into the right size and shape for that particular twig. Finally, each wand is given at least two coats of organic vegetable-derived oil to protect and nourish the wood. This oil contains no chemicals or preservatives and is exactly as it comes from the press. I will not cut trees to get the wood, and if I’ve used prunings I’ll say so. I will not use power tools of any kind, and I certainly won’t use any artificial chemical substances such as stain, dye, paint, or glue. If you like, you can embellish your wand in whatever way you choose, with paint, carving, cords, ribbons and crystals, but I leave them as pure and natural as possible while still being beautiful, practical and non-splintery. All wands will be given another coat of oil before dispatch, wrapped in paper, padded with shredded paper and posted with their relevant literature in a stout tube or custom made box to ensure safe arrival. All the packaging material is reused, recycled and/or recyclable, so please dispose of it thoughtfully.
