"So Potent is the flower or berry or wood of the Rowan or witchwood or quicken or whicken-tree or mountain ash against the wiles of the elf-folk, that dairymaids use it for cream-stirrers and cowherds for a switch." ~ Walter De La Mare

The wood is tough and strong, and was traditionally used for handles of tools, cart-wheels and planks or beams. Rowan berries can be eaten by humans and can be used to make jellies to accompany meat.

The rowan has many associations with magic and witches. Its old celtic name is 'fid na ndruad' which means wizards tree. In Ireland it was planted near houses to protect them against spirits, especially of the dead. In Wales rowans were often planted in churchyards. In Scotland there was a strong taboo against cutting down a rowan. The wood was seen as the most protective part and was used for stirring milk (to prevent it curdling), as a pocket charm against rheumatism and made into divining rods. The protective power is thought to come from the bright red berries, as red was thought to be the best colour for fighting evil. The only place that still retains some rowan rituals is the Isle of Man. Rowan is one of the Nine Woods cited in the Wiccan Rede.
