Beautiful Natural *Sweet Chestnut* Wood Altar/Pocket Talisman for Love and Romance!

This talisman features in a treasury by EspritMystique celebrating pagan symbols of all kinds here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/NzgwNTYxN3wzMTM4ODIwMzY/mysterious-symbols

This is a simply superb talisman made from the wood of one of my splendid Sweet Chestnut trees. It would be a fabulous altar adornment, especially for any rituals designed to attract love into your life, and is small enough to be carried with you as a portable love charm. The flat faces are silky smooth to the touch and contrast beautifully with the slightly crinkly bark. The wood has seasoned to a warm shade of medium brown and the chocolate coloured bark sports several patches of lichen in various tones of olive and khaki.

The symbol is a heptagram (which just means seven-sided) and this version is sacred to the Goddess Venus. It is said to help you attain love and harmony in your life, at the same time as enabling you to radiate beauty and attractiveness... so once empowered by ritual you should find it a very powerful aid to finding and keeping a mate! The three dots at the centre are meant to represent the ideal nuclear family, father, mother and child, but it could also be a celebration of the triple Goddess. All decoration has been burnt into the surface of the wood in exactly the same way as I burn my runes, so it will not chip off or wear away. The talisman has been finished with several coats of oil to protect and enhance the wood, but this soaks into the wood fibres so it does not leave the surface greasy to the touch.

Also known as Spanish Chestnut, Sweet Chestnut is said to be useful in all workings to do with romantic love.

Size: Two and one eighth inches by one and seven eighths inches across and half an inch thick.
54mm x 50mm x 13mm.

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 bid.

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

For a full list of the woods I might have available, including their latin names to reduce risk of confusion, as well as their magical properties and a bunch of other stuff, check out my blog at: http://www.mazedasastoat.blogspot.com/
