This beautiful wand is made by Riley-our 13 year old son & member of our shop. All of the wands he makes are made from fallen Rhododendron that he found in the woods of Asheville, NC where we live. Rhododendron is said to help with the process of focusing and enhances one's awareness of enemies. These wands are a highly useful tool for someone who finds concentration and focus difficult at times. Each wand is a unique gift from nature and will handle differently. The wood has a rustic look and has only been treated with a homemade beeswax polish (made from wax of local bees). This wand is 11" long.
