This lovely altar amulet is created from Devon Alder wood and featureless a beautiful Tree of Life.
We are blessed to be guardians of a small woodland in Devon and this grid is made from English Alder from an old tree which went over last year. Alder Wood encourages journeys, self confidence, bravery, and spiritual growth. Alder was revered by our ancestors as being almost human as when alder is freshly cut the wood goes a deep red colour almost like blood! It is also the elementals tree and the green leaves and bark were traditionally used to dye fabrics green. The piece has then been lightly waxed with our own natural beeswax, olive oil and lavender hand-blended wax and given a little polish. Size approx 15cm / 6".
Alder being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol of fern on the back for extra energy and protection.
The Tree of Life is a universal symbol found in many spiritual traditions. It stands for many things, including wisdom, protection, strength, bounty, beauty, and redemption. It is also symbolic of the universal energy and connection as it sustains creation with its abundant fruit, protection and regeneration.
