Ancestor Spirit This beautiful wand is crafted from a yew root which has wonderfully warm tones and markings. The root was respectfully gathered from a historically windfallen tree in the area around the ancient, sacred site of Stonehenge in southern Britain. Yew trees have long associations with the ancestors - particularly strongly with this piece, given the incredible history of the landscape surrounding the tree as it grew.
The wand has a carved scroll winding around it with inscriptions of both runes and ogham. Both inscriptions say "I weave my magick". The runes are translated from Old Norse and the ogham is from Irish Gaelic.
The core is filled with a dried herb blend of yarrow, grasses and white clover, all respectfully and carefully gathered from the ancient, sacred prehistoric mound of Silbury Hill in southern England. Hedge-gathered herbs considered sacred to the Druids are also added to the mix - mugwort, vervain, enchanter's nightshade, bluebell, juniper, knapweed, heather flowers, lavender and mistletoe. The herbs are permanently sealed inside with a protective plug of heather.
Yarrow brings its strong associations with clairvoyance and powers to promote divination. Lavender is a powerful herb which brings peace, harmony and encourages positive thought. Vervain is a sacred cleansing and purification herb. Juniper has strong associations with healing and mistletoe is added for its traditional connections with Druids. Mugwort has been used for millennia to aid clairvoyance, lucid dreaming and astral projection. Our ancestors drank tea made from the leaves and it has also been used in incenses or smoked to induce visions.
A truly unique piece and full of wonderful energies.
