The alraun is a fetish created from the root of a plant. Most commonly these roots are from the mandrake, the briony, or the ash. The alraun often is shaped with human characteristics and is said to bring luck and protection to the household. They are either crafted while growing, carved after they are harvested, or naturally found in a human-like form. Once harvested the root is mummified and preserved.

They were often kept in boxes upon the hearth or secreted away somewhere, as during certain points of history simply owning an alraun was enough to convict a person of witchcraft and have them put to death. It was also said that if one wanted to be rid of the alraun it could only be sold for a higher price than one paid for it, or that it must be returned to the earth by burial.

This fetish was inspired by and crafted to behave much like the alraun in appearance and in purpose. This fetish is designed primarily for protection of the home and it's inhabitants. It has been ritually hand crafted from an all natural clay which has been embedded with traditional protective herbs and roots. It comes with its own custom crafted casket for storage and protection. Though the piece is best stored in it's box when not in use, it does have a small loop on its back should you want to hang it.

This fetish is designed for the serious practitioner as it is a powerful tool and ally which requires attention and some level of experience and responsibility on the part of its owner. When it arrives to you it will come with a package of incense, a brick of charcoal on which to burn the incense, a vial of protection powder, a set of natural beeswax candles and instructions for its activation and care.

It will be recommended that at least once monthly, preferably when the moon is full, that the candles are used as illustrated for a short period, that an invocatory prayer be utilized and that an offering be made. The full details of this working will be included with your purchase and we are always available for follow up questions from the buyer.

Again, this piece is crafted as a spiritual fetish and intended for use, not as a simple decor item. If you are interested in something similar crafted as a decor item instead please contact us about custom work.

If you have any questions about this piece or having one like it custom made, please don't hesitate to ask.
