This gorgeous wooden wand is made from Devon Yew wood from a friends garden. The natural shape of the wood has been lovingly respected and a flowing spiral has been hand shaped onto it to encourage the natural flow of energy through the wood. A delicate point has been encouraged onto the end in the direction the wood has grown on the tree, again to keep the natural energy flowing. A knot work double spiral has been pyrographed on and it has been protected with our own natural beeswax, olive oil and lavender hand-blended wax and given a little polish.
Yew being a sacred Celtic tree we have also burnt the Ogham symbol of iodhadh onto the piece for extra energy and protection.
Yew wood symbolises regeneration, rebirth, protection, communication with the other world and was traditionally used for dowsing. All peoples of the Northern Hemisphere, especially the Celts, the Greeks, the Romans and the North American Indians, have a right and powerful understanding of this unusual and remarkable tree. Yew is associated with immortality, renewal, regeneration, everlasting life, rebirth, transformation and access to the Otherworld and our ancestors. The Yew is sacred to Hecate, and the Crone aspect of the Triple Goddess as both are guardians of the Underworld, death and the afterlife. Yew trees were sacred to the Druids who respected their great size and age.
The wand pictured is the one you will receive approx sizes 13"/32cm length.
