This lovely altar amulet is made from Devon Apple wood and features a beautiful spiral tree design with an infinity symbol. Apple wood is a very magical wood. cut an apple in half across the middle and you will find the centre forms a pentagram with the seeds held within. Apple brings the energy of fertility, peace, plenty, joy, harmony, love and passion. A very female energy and a tree that is sacred to Venus and the Celtic Goddess Rhiannon. Apple is a staple food of the elven and fae realm.
This is a powerful wood of choice for the witch when working with the fairie magick. Apple is a good wood for aiding in the propagation of skills, often used in love magick. Apple wood promotes magick of light, the divine and promotes visions.
Apple being a sacred Celtic tree we have simply also burnt the Ogham symbol of quert on the shaft for extra energy and protection.
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 22cm / 8.5".
The piece has a crack in the wood which we have placed at the top or spirit end as we embrace this as a natural energy within the wood. In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is "imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete" in nature.
This would make a wonderful addition to your altar, meditation space or a gift.
