Spirit of Old
"Path Walker" Twisted Oak wand
The wood dates from around 6,000 years ago and is from Somerset, considered by many to be the site of the fabled Isle of Avalon. This rare and beautiful wood is a deep, warm chestnut in colour and feels full of positive energies.
After collection, the bark is usually stripped from these wands and the wood is then worked until smooth. Some of the wands are left without decoration to show off their natural beauty and others are adorned with Runes or other symbols both as a means of decoration and of empowerment. A crystal tip may also be added in order to channel energy, add its own special qualities and, of course, to look beautiful. Every wand is polished to a deep shine using natural beeswax polish (unless otherwise stated).
Different trees can have very different energies so it may be worthwhile browsing through the page of tree properties to decide on the most suitable type of wood for your wand.
Our aim is to produce finely crafted magickal items from the best materials with the least harm caused to the environment.
|Divination: Ogham sets|
The Ogham alphabet consists of twenty letters to which a further five were added at a late stage in its development, probably later than the 8th century. The original twenty letters each consist of from one to five straight lines or notches intersecting a stem line. There is clear evidence for the magickal and divinatory use of the Ogham alphabet from the literature of medieval Ireland. Historically the symbols were used for divination by the use of four Yew wands, although more recently, the ogham alphabet has been used for divination by inscribing it onto small wooden staves or onto discs of wood. One symbol is added to each piece and they are used in a similar way to the runes.
