Beautiful Natural Wand by  Mazedasastoat:

This beautiful wand maybe purchased on ETSY for $25.00

Natural Wood Wand *English Oak* for Power!

This is a wand made from a small branch of a mature Oak tree. The limb had been broken by tractors going through a field gateway, so I trimmed it back and tidied it up so no more damage would be done to the tree. It has a relatively straight shaft, and a comfortable handle formed from a small zig-zag kink. I’ve left the bark intact to enhance the rustic quality, and there are numerous areas a lichen ranging from the palest khaki green through to a deep sooty black. There are several leaf scars along the shaft, but no knots that break the bark except for one close to the handle.The xposed wood has seasoned to the rich colour known universally as “Medium Oak” and is glass smooth beneath your fingertips.

I think this wand has rather a quiet and calm feel, not at all the somewhat authoritarian air that is so common in Oak. It seems friendly but rather aloof, although that probably just means it’s holding itself in reserve for it’s rightful owner. I believe it would suit almost anyone, man or woman, young or old, experienced practitioner or complete novice.

Oak is known for its properties of strength and endurance, and can provide strong protection. It is excellent for magic to do with power or dominion, and can be helpful in spells to do with prosperity.

Size: About sixteen inches long and just over five eighths of an inch thick.
408mm x 18mm.

It will come with a list of the magical properties of the wood, a picture of the actual wand, consecration suggestions and care instructions.

Please be aware that some countries do not allow the importation of any wooden items that still have the bark attached. It is up to you to ensure that an item is not in breach of the customs regulations of your country before you buy.

For a full list of the woods I might have available, as well as their magical properties, associated folkore and a bunch of other stuff, check out my blog at: http://www.mazedasastoat.blogspot.com/

Yule Love. Priapic Wand by WildWizardCrafts.

Kai Seidr of  WIldWizardCrafts  wrote this write up on their lovely wand:

“Priapic wand with cone on natural silver bark branch with red ribbon wrap/bow and hanging loop.
Priapic wand, which is named after Priapus, the Roman God of fertility and procreation. This wand symbolises the lord of the forest / Pan / the green man and shaking it and pointing at plants and trees is said to wake them up from their winter’s sleep so that they can witness the union of the bride and lord of the forest. It is used as a magical means to assist in the fertilisation of the plants and all that grows in nature so that when spring time comes the world with be bright with blooming flowers and growth.”

Wand list price under $20 USD.

I will say it has woken me up from my posting slumber. Wishing everyone Glad Tidings!

Holly Rune Wand By TreeSeer

Holly Rune Wand by TreeSeer

In a Rune state of mind. This Holly wand comes to us from TreeSeer. I normally veer away from wands with Runes. I have a deep respect for the art of Runes. I believe they should be trifled with except with deep respect and practice. It is certain from TreeSeers work that he is not trifling but using a practiced and adept hand. He has other beautiful work on his site. Please visit him and his TreeSeer.

Black Walnut 10 inches by NaturalCraftUK

Black Walnut is a cautionary tail and is always a witch’s wand. Someone may craft one as a harmless or simple child’s toy. But Black Walnut is not simple nor harmless. Black Walnut will lead you to the darker places of your soul. That is not a bad thing. To look into one’s dark side is necessary to improve ones life. We must face our dark side and come to terms with it. Work with it to be used in a positive way. But it may be a difficult thing to achieve for a child and may lead to nightmares, night terrors, anxiousness. Black Walnut is not a tree to use for astral travel for journeying. For those that do Shamanic traveling or hedge crossing Black Walnut needs to be avoided at all costs.

So, what is Black Walnut for? Black Walnut is a tree not afraid to kill or injure others in order to grow and survive. Black Walnut is nurturing to its mammal community with its protein packed walnuts that come sprouting out before winter. Black Walnut is excellent for those that work with dying, surviving loss, in mourning, those desiring to face and integrate their dark side, those in the military who are in constant harms way. Those that worship the dark side of the Goddess, God. Banishment, hexing, protective work also come to mind.

There is nothing wrong about working with a Black Walnut Wand but one should know what they are working with and know it is not one just for light hearted playtime.

This beautiful wand was crafted by NaturalCraftUK found on ETSY. For more information on this wand click here. I found this to be a beautiful and lovingly crafted wood wand. The ring around the handle is a fun and very symbolic addition. The raised spiral very potent. It comes across as loved, wanted and (again) potent. Hats off to Jason Townsend the wandmaker of this handcrafted wand. Priced Generously at $31.01 USD.

Daughter of the Sea, Ocean Magic Wand by DreamWeaverSpirit

I have been saving this one for quite sometime. This piece is just mesmerizing to me. This has a Holly wand shaft sandwiched between an antler tine and a large quartz. But even if it did not have the Holly it would have made it on this website. Just stunning! Created by DreamWeaverSpirit. This is they have to say about this magickal piece:

A beautiful and magical Native American inspired wand. I have stripped, sanded and waxed a beautiful piece of Holly.( I wanted to leave some of the colour and markings so I didn’t sand it down completely). I have attached a piece of shed antler and a rough quartz crystal with epoxy resin, and I have created the design around the turquoise cabochon and coral with epoxy putty. The round beadwork is flat circular herringbone stitch and I have beaded around it using peyote stitch. Hanging off the beadwork is a shark tooth and behind the tooth you will find what looks like the navel (belly button)of the wood. This wand practically made itself, it measures 8″ and has a lovely energy. A beautiful and powerful wand to work with when connecting to the ocean and attuning to the creation of life.

METAPHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES:

Holly is a very fiery and protective wood. It is used for increasing spiritual strength and has life giving and creative properties. It is also associated with dream magick and fertility and is said to to protect us from anything that isn’t unconditional love.

Quartz crystal is used for scrying, it stimulates psychism and amplifies spiritual power.

Turquoise is said to attract luck and happiness. It also helps with self expression, creativity and stimulates the throat chakra.

Coral is said to quiet the emotions and brings peace within. It helps us to both understand and use the qualities of the mystic, facilitates intuition, imagination and visualization. It is also said to attract love and beauty.

Sharks are called upon for protection and for accessing the unconscious mind. Shark is a very powerful totem to have. They teach us to swim the path of least resistance and to go forward driven by our primal instincts. They symbolise transition as they are constantly renewing themselves. Shark people are efficient, dynamic, knowing, and powerful.

Antler/Stag helps us recconnect with nature and our instinctive and intuitive personality. It also represents strength, power and fertility.

Turkey (feather) teaches us how all life is sacred and we must learn to give and be grateful for what we have.
