Natural Wood Wand *Apple* for Increase!

Every year at this time I find myself fighting the impulse to work almost exclusively with Apple wood and this year is no exception although I promise I'm doing my best not to swamp you with Apple wood items! This particular wand has a gentle overall curve for perfect balance and the surface of the wood is glass smooth under your fingertips, making it almost impossible to resist stroking the surface whenever it gets within reach. The thickness remains even throughout the length and the warm tones of the wood are shown to their best advantage as the bark has been removed. There are numerous tiny knots, but they only show as mere dots. The colour is paler than is usual for Apple wands that I make, because the wood is not so old. The rich colour usually seen in my Apple wood items is developed over a long time after the wood is cut; I had always assumed it to reach it's richest and darkest after about a year, but I know this branch came down when we had a large Ash tree pollarded and one of the branches fell onto the Apple tree about eighteen months ago, so it obviously takes longer than that. There are a couple of darker patches showing areas of damage to the bark, but mostly the wood is a warm creamy shade of honey.

I think this wand has an extremely friendly, caring feel to it, as well as an air of great age. It also has a rather unexpected air of having a steely core of strength that would probably make it ideal for protective magic of any kind. I believe it would best suit someone past the first flush of youth, but would be equally suitable for a man or a woman. I actually like this wand a lot more than I usually like wands of Apple wood, although I can't quite put my finger on exactly why that is. I'll be sorry to see it go.

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 and five eighths inches long and about three quarters of an inch thick.
321mm x 20mm.

Because I believe my items should give you a lifetime of service and in return they deserve to be properly looked after, I have always included detailed care instructions with all items purchased. Wood is not a lifeless material and needs to be treated accordingly, but this isn’t difficult and shouldn’t be expensive, which is why I only ever use treatments which are readily available and easily accessible. It might sound impressive to be able to say to you that I use my own secret blend of exotic oils and waxes, but that’s not much help when you’ve dropped your wand in a muddy puddle and want to know how to get it looking its best again! LOL

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

For a full list of the woods I might have available as well as their magical properties, associated folklore and a bunch of other stuff, check out my blog at: http://www.mazedasastoat.blogspot.com/
