Altar Besom, Witches BroomFrom WayOfTheCauldron
hand crafted witches altar besom, or wall/doorway decoration for protection.


NOTE: This is a custom order and so the broom you will recieve may look slightly different but will not vary much, mostly the handle part will be slightly different but still apple wood, every thing else will be much the same.. please allow a week for making the broom. This broom is approx. 24" in length! And is NOT a full sized besom.

I have other styles of besoms available also, please have a browse through the wands and besom section to see others you might like.

The broomstick was an important implement in the homes across Europe in ancient times. It was the only way to keep a home clean and sweep out the old.

One of the earliest forms of a broom was a besom broom. These were made of twigs tied to a handle and these would be made of various materials such as straw, twigs and even herbs. The shaft of the besom was round to represent the Tree of Life which was an important symbol to the ancient pagans.

Brooms were often found hanging inside dwellings with their bristles up as a way to ward off evil or negative energies as well in whole protect the home and all who dwelled in it. Brooms were also found hanging over doorways as a way to cleanse those whom would cross the threshold of any negative energies or if they came with ill intent.

The Witches broom is considered one of the few tools that holds the balance of Divine forces. That of both male and female energies. The phallic handle representing the masculine energies and the bristles to represent feminine energy. This is why the broom was often employed in handfasting ceremonies and still is today.

Traditionally the Witches broom or besom is a tool for clearing and cleansing of sacred space prior to ritual. During The Burning Times of Europe, Witches would use the broom to hide another of their very important ritual tools, the wand.
. It is also a tradition that brooms have been used by some as receptacles to harbor a particular spirit temporarily. This could be done to remove an unwanted spirit from one area and then release it far away in another place. Or it could be used to utilize the energy of a spirit for a specific spell when the broom is used as a wand

SHIPPING: As you will see there is a pic of a typical receipt to ship this broom to Canada and the U.S. This does not even take into account the cost of the tube to ship it in. I decided to add a pic as proof that this besom does in fact cost this much to ship, as I have been questioned about this. This is coming from Canada and here they take into account both weight and size of parcel. The shipping is high on this on account of length, also I have decided to use FedEx Courier as it is faster and Canada Post is no cheaper! FedEx Shipping assures 3-5 day delivery and comes with a tracking number.
