Tree Breath Staves - Lunar Celtic Tree Calendar


Ordering information:

*These have a four week crafting time between payment and posting*

The Celtic Tree Calendar has several different variations. This lunar version begins and ends at the Celtic new year of Samhain (Hallowe'en) at the end of October. Each moon throughout the year corresponds to a different tree, it's energies and teachings.

This unique Tree Breath set contains the thirteen staves of the Lunar Celtic Tree Calendar, each one handcrafted from the traditional corresponding wood. As each new moon arrives, the corresponding stave can be used as an aid to meditation or attunement with both the new month and the tree itself. The staves can also be used for divination in the same way as the ogham or runes.

Supplied with a simple cotton bag for storage, a brief introductory sheet containing information about the tree calendar and the uses of the staves, and an information sheet about how to care for your staves. The sheets can be in PDF form for easy printing (recommended, and they're replaceable when they get lost!), or paper for gift-giving - please add a note in the message box during checkout if you wish to have a paper copy.

We work and play in the ancient Celtic heartlands of Britain where the Durotriges and Atrebates tribes ruled in prehistory. These tree calendar staves are handcrafted ritual tools with real Celtic soul, something with real spirit and as each set is individually made, no two are ever the same.

*Each set will vary slightly in shape, colour, texture and graining.* The pictures shown are past examples and, while the newly crafted sets will contain exactly the same wood types and be very similar in overall style and size, there will be small differences. That's part of the natural beauty of handcrafted items :-)

The set contains one each of the following woods:

Size: 5 inches/ 12.5 cm (approx.)

Item no: TC001


Postage and packing

UK postage and packing: £5

Non-UK delivery: We have had to temporarily, and very reluctantly, raise our postage costs for international orders. The main UK postal service (Royal Mail) is currently unable to deliver internationally so we are having to use alternative postal companies during this time which are all more expensive. We are hoping this will be a very short-lived and temporary measure and we will return to our usual P+P prices as soon as possible. UK delivery prices are unaffected.

Current non-UK postage and packing cost for airmail (excluding Australia and New Zealand): £30

Current airmail cost only to Australia or New Zealand: £49

For some European countries, it may be possible to use a slightly cheaper postal service via road. If you would like a postage quote for road delivery to your country, please email Louise at

For non-UK orders containing multiple items, the postage and packing costs will automatically be combined to help to reduce it as much as possible but I'm finding it difficult to estimate accurately because this postal company is new to me. If I find that you've overpaid postage I will, of course, happily refund the extra. Alternatively, if you would like a quote before purchasing, please email Louise at with the item numbers you're interested in.

We'll gradually be releasing new slots for the corresponding Tree Calendar staves so if you find they've sold out please check back. I'll also add a post on the Spirit of Old Facebook page to let you know when they're available :-)

If it says "Add to Cart" below, there's a crafting slot available! Hurrah!
