Natural Wood Wand *English Oak* for Power!

This wand appears in a witchy treasury by CrystalMistCottages here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/ODAwNzA5MXw1ODc4Nzg1MTg/there-are-still-witches-in-the-woods

... and in one highlighting the variety of wands to be found here on Etsy by stickstaffcane here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/ODE5OTUyMnwyNzIzMjg3MDk0/challenge-66-magical-wood-from-a-lder?ref=pr_treasury

This is a wand made from a small branch of a mature Oak tree. The limb had been broken by tractors going through a field gateway, so I trimmed it back and tidied it up so no more damage would be done to the tree. It has a gently curved handle that fits perfectly into your hand and the tip narrows down quite sharply for perfect precision. There are two large knots, the bottom one of which shows traces of the trauma of having the side shoot broken off when the branch was broken. Both the knots show quite clearly the perfect five pointed star to be found at the centre of every Oak branch. I've left the bark intact because the pale gold colour of the outer bark is so pretty, although there's such a lot of dark lichen along one side that it can only be seen from the right angle.

I think this wand feels fairly standard for Oak, with an air of stern kindness and gentle authority. It seems calm and dignified, as becomes the tree most sacred to the male aspect of the divine, and it also has a timeless quality that hints at great wisdom and immense age. I get the impression that it would be the perfect wand for personal empowerment, for any magic designed to gain power in a situation in which you feel helpless, not in order to control it but simply so you have some say in what happens. I believe it would suit either a man or a woman, providing they had a little Craft experience and were not very young.

Oak is known for its properties of strength and endurance, and can provide strong protection. It is excellent for magic to do with power or dominion, and can be helpful in spells to do with prosperity.

Size: Twelve and three eighths inches long and half to seven eighths of an inch thick.
314mm x 13-21mm.

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

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.
