This beautiful Ceremonial Smudge Fan has been lovingly created using cruelty free feathers, crystals, charms and gifted wood. Each fan is handcrafted intuitively using a combination of materials that are called together. This particular fan is approx 33cm / 13" long and includes a variety of feathers on a Devon Hazel wood handle with a horse charm and Turquoise crystals to encourage communication and ancestral connection.
We are blessed to be guardians of an ancient sacred wood and the Hazel for the handle came from a fallen branch. Hazel being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol of coll onto the piece for extra energy and protection.
Hazel is one of the very oldest British native trees. Traces of hazel nut shells and pollen have been discovered in cave settlements, dating from around 10,000 years ago. The tree is associated with the Goddess Brighid, goddess of wisdom and divine inspiration and Hazel traditionally symbolises and encourages artistic ability, optimism, love and inspiration.
When smudging a fan or feather is used to brush or stroke the persons aura or the space you are smudging and help remove the stagnant energy.
We collect native feathers whenever we find them and also source them from our friend Srdjan who is an ornithologist and spends most of his time in nature and helping with recuse and conservation projects. All the feathers are naturally molted, not plucked from birds reared for food or shot for conservation purposes. Having these beautiful sacred objects knowing in our hearts that no creatures have been harmed is something which is very important to us.
All our handcrafted items are made with our love and intention and a little magic )0(
We also sell a range of sage, incense and holy woods suitable for smudging.
