If you would like to make your very own sacred Ogham Staves but have struggled to collect all 20 sacred woods then we can help you!
We are blessed to be guardians of a small sacred woodland in Devon and the majority of the woods in these sets is from gifted and fallen trees within our woods. Other woods have been carefully gathered from our garden and close to our home so the energy is pure and very strong!
Each piece is cut to approx approx 9cm / 3.5" long and left natural so you may add your own symbols however feels right for you. We also offer the option of taking a little bark off each piece (please see pic 7) and gently sanding the two ends if you don't have tools to easily do this, just choose your preferred option when ordering.
We will label each wood in pencil and supply an ID sheet making it easier for you to recognise each wood..
