Natural Wood Wand *Orange* for Prosperity - From Florida - ONE ONLY!

A while ago one of my friends sent me a box chock-full of sticks from his yard in Florida, so I could make myself some wands from them and experience the ways they differ from the woods I'm familiar with. It was a fabulous opportunity for me to get to work with exotic, tropical woods, that I know were ethically harvested; and although I haven't been able to forge such a strong connection with any of them as with the types that grow on my own land, it's still fascinating to note the differences in feel and attitude. Almost all of the pieces I haven't kept for myself have been snapped up by friends, but I have this single Orange wood wand to offer all you lovely folks. I have to say, of all the different woods in the box, the Orange is my favourite.

This is a fairly small but tough wand made from the wood of an Orange tree that supplies my friend and his wife with oranges for their breakfast juice. I've left the bark intact and the slightly wrinkly texture forms a fascinating tactile contrast with the silky smoothness of the exposed wood. I also like the greenish colour as very few woods retain green bark once they're sufficiently seasoned to be workable; usually the slightest hint of green shows that the wood has been fairly recently cut, but as this piece has been in my possession for over a year then I think it's safe to say that the greenness is here to stay. There are numerous knots of all sizes progressing in a deosil spiral towards the tip.

Despite its modest size, I think this wand feels like a little powerhouse. Most domestic fruit woods are rather tame, having a cosy and familiar feel that makes them safe, but this feels much more elemental and somewhat wilder than that. Possibly it's because I'm less familiar with this wood, but I get the feeling that it needs to be treated with repect and could be a bit of a double edged sword in the same way that the Sun itself can provide gentle nurturing warmth or blazing, burning heat. It reminds me a lot of Blackthorn, which is probably why I like it so much! :-)

Orange wood is said to be effective in magic to bring love, luck and money. It is ruled by the Sun and has a rather fiery nature. It can be strongly protective.

Size: Ten and three quarter inches long and about half an inch thick.
274mm x 13mm.

It will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture and care instructions. For new customers I also include a sheet of consecration suggestions.
