Natural Wood Wand *Rowan* for Magical Protection!

Featured in a treasury celebrating the Native American totems for November, Rowan, Raven and Fox, by bladeandbroom here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury/NjA0OTQ3OHwxMDY0Njc2NTM0/november-rowan-raven-fox

This is a superb wand made from a branch of the Rowan tree that grows in my brother-in-law's garden hedge. On the other side of the hedge is a pear orchard, and one day last spring the tractor that the farmer uses for cutting the grass beneath the fruit trees caught on this branch and broke it. So naturally I volunteered to trim the wound neatly and "dispose" of the wood for him! :-)

This is quite a chunky wand and the slight curve of the handle fits perfectly into your hand. The wood is a colourful mix of shades from the palest buttermilk through honey and amber to warm russet, rich caramel and black coffee. This branch was dead so much of the bark had fallen off and the wood had been exposed to the elements, which is what caused such a riot of colours, and in a couple of places the extreme outer layer of the wood has been weathered away. There are just two large knots and the surface of the wood is silky smooth to the touch.

At first meeting, this wand has an immensely calm and peaceful air, seeming to just ooze serenity and tranquillity. However, there's an undercurrent of firm decisiveness, that could almost be described as stubborness, that I think would make it unsuitable for a novice. Providing they have a little Craft experience, I think it would suit a young person, or just someone young-at-heart, as it seems to have an air of freshness and enthusiasm that would complement a youthful outlook exceedingly well.

Rowan is very protective, especially against lightning and evil witchery, and can be useful in healing. It is said to increase psychic powers and bring power and success. It is allegedly the best wood to use if dowsing for metal. It is also the traditional choice for Druid's staffs.

Size: About twelve inches long and up to an inch thick.
304mm x 22-26mm.

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