Unusual Natural Wood Wand *Apple* for Abundance and Plenty!

This wand features as one of "the best wands on Etsy" in a treasury by EireCrescent here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/NzU3NDc3NHw1Mzk2NDgwNDc/cast-a-spell?ref=pr_treasury

This is a stunning little wand made from the wood of an ancient Apple tree. It's very slender and almost straight, but what really sets it apart is the fascinating feature forming part of the handle. This kind of growth is perfectly natural and is caused by the tree's reaction to a fungal infection in an area of damaged bark. Beyond the swelling the branch continues to grow as normal, but these areas need to be removed to keep the tree healthy as they cause a weak spot in the branch. I've left the bark intact on this wand as it helps to add to the air of earthy rusticity, and also because I really like the colour of Apple bark! :-) There are still traces of lichen adhering to the bark and nine knots form an even spiral from the handle to the tip.

I think this wand has quite a strong feeling of the Fae. It seem to have a slightly mischievous air about it, playful and joyful, that I fins immensely appealing. Actually, it feels just downright cheerful, and I feel it would be perfect for any ritual to welcome and celebrate the growing season. Apple has strong links with the Fair Folk, so it would probably be useful in any "Faery friendly" ritual. I believe this wand would be an excellent first wand for a novice and would be ideal for any young woman... or really, any young person who's still full of the pure joy of living.

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: Twelve inches long and about three eighths of an inch thick.
305mm x 9mm.

It will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture of the actual wand, consecration suggestions (for first time buyers only, providing I remember you!) 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.
