You could try burning personal sigils or fire symbols onto the wand. Or draw the symbols on orange/yellow paper in red ink, then burn it and make a powder by mixing the ashes with spicy herbs -- then either mix some of the powder into an anointing oil or rub the wand with the powder.
If you can find it, attaching a small obsidian bead to your wand would help with grounding as well as incorporating the fire element because it is formed from molten hot, melted earth.

The wand itself has no power. The person using it has the power. A wand can be merely a twig, and often was in ancient times! The Athame serves the same purpose. Use it to cast a circle. Use it in the sexual ritual of the God mating with the Goddess (Plunging into the chalice.). But, it has no power of itself.
I have to agree with Brysing here. The Wand is a tool, a focal point, it's an extension of your own body and inherently holds no specific abilities in and of itself. There are magical associations applied to the different woods though, and you can bless the wand for a specific purpose, such as healing, protection, etc...
Do some more research on the kind of wood your wand is made of (if it's made of wood) and see what natural properties it has and then go from there.
