Natural Wood Wand *Birch* for New Beginnings!

This is a truly beautiful wand made from the wood of a graceful mature Birch tree. The tree in question grows on the boundary of my property and occasionally threatens to touch the electricity cable that supplies both my house and the one next door. Last year it had a good growing season, so after the leaves fell and before the winter gales set in the electricity company sent a team to remove the branches closest to the cable. Of course, I couldn't let them take the wood away with them so in return for a few cups of coffee the obliging workmen left me all the prunings! :-)

This is a fairly straight wand with numerous knots of assorted sizes. The surface of the wood is smooth and warm under your fingertips, and has attained the beautiful grey mottled effect to be found just beneath the bark. I've left as much as this as possible intact, although it's a very thin layer of colour and very easy to sand away; I like it because it reminds me of the soft plumage of the Ring Neck Doves that so love the Birch tree and fill it with their gentle calls all summer. If you're an old fashioned traditionalist (like me) and count Samhain as the end of one year and the beginning of the next, then you'll appreciate why a Birch wand is so appropriate for this celebration; otherwise, it's never too early to plan for Yule! This wand could help rid you of any unwanted or undesirable habits and associations, and let you start the fresh year revitalised and feeling refreshingly cleansed and renewed.

I think this wand has a very gentle, almost timid air about it, and it feels rather young and innocent as well. It reminds me a bit of a fawn or a leveret somehow. I believe it would best suit a young woman and would be perfect as a first wand for a novice.

Birch is traditionally used for cleansing rites and driving out evil spirits. It is useful for matters concerning protection and healing, but its great strength is in rituals to do with birth, rebirth and renewal, or any kind of new beginning. It can be used in exorcism.

Size: Fourteen and five eighths inches long and no less than half an inch thick.
372mm x 13mm.

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