Your wand will be smudged and cleansed with our own Everyday Hearth and Home Smudge Blend before shipping.
The yew tree is one of the most sacred and powerful trees to all of the indigenous peoples of the world where it grows naturally, including Scandinavians, Native Americans, Celts, Romans, and Greeks. This evergreen tree can grow for thousands of years, so embodies the energies of immortality, rebirth, renewal, guides and ancestors, bridges the worlds and was thought to open doorways to other realities and can be helpful for astral travel. Wonderful for working magic involving guiding souls between worlds, communication and incantations. The Yew is especially sacred to the Druids seers and healers. It also embodies the Crone aspect, and is sacred to Goddess aspects, including Hecate, Astarte, and Persephone. Yew is can be used in spells of transfiguration and illusion, necromancy, and otherworldly knowledge.
Wands are a great addition to your spiritual toolbox. They are used as an extension of your body to direct and focus energy during ritual work in many spiritual traditions, as well as for fun or cosplay. The use of these tools can be traced back to many ancient civilizations. Wands by themselves are not "magic," as the energy and magic required of them is generally channeled from the practitioner and user of these fine tools according to your intentions and purposes. In other words, the magic comes from within you. The wand one will select is entirely personal to each individual and one may choose a wand based on their own intuition and/or tastes. There are as many and varied uses and choices of materials for wands as there are practitioners. The wand should be used in your dominant hand. We do not advocate the use of our tools for dark purposes and to attack others, as the energy you send out will return to you. If used for ritual purposes, we recommend charging and cleansing your wand before use, such as in sage or energetic smudge smoke, as well as under a full moon. You can also hold it between your hands and infuse the wand by visualizing healing light. We do not recommend letting others hold or use your wand, as all who touch your wand can infuse it with their energy, nor use your wand while upset or angry. Always be careful where you wave your wand, so as not to cause injury to others.
Greybeard's Magic Wands are hand-crafted, hand-turned, and finished with multiple, hand rubbed, coats all natural, plant based and solvent free oils and waxes in our woodshop. Each is created with positive intent and healing energy. Our wands are handcrafted using the finest woods chosen for their energetic properties, as well as aesthetically pleasing look. Each is a unique creation and no two wands are exactly alike. We recommend an occasional rubbing of your wand with an all-natural wood conditioning product, such as Greybeard's Flute Life Wax made with beeswax, carnauba, and almond oil, to keep it supple and beautiful and to last for many years.
In sawdust and song, Spell Responsibly! Greybeard
