Wand Making for Dummies!
Wand making for dummies, as the title says. Going through which wood to use, accessories, and everything there possibly is! All questions welcomed.
Firstly, before any of you ask, I posted this in herbalism because wand-making is associated with herbalism in my opinion..
Oh, and you dont have to have a wand! Your index finger works just fine!
Okay, here I go!
1. Choosing the right type of wood.
Choosing the right type of wood is important, because it has a effect on the spells that you cast! For example, if your wand is for love spells only, use a type of wood associated with love! Such as holly. If you just want a all-purpose wand for all types of spells, use a wood with lots of magickal properties, and can pretty much be used for anything. Same goes for any type of spells you want to cast with your wand. Money spells, wisdom spells, life spells, anything. Do your research!
2. The right size of wand.
The reccommended size for a wand is 13cm, I dont know why, maybe it is a good length for energy channelling? However, there is such a thing as ' Pocket Wands' As you can imagine, these are small wands that you can fit in your pocket, are easy to travel, and not as easy to notice if you want to keep your wand hidden.
3. Wand rejection.
Sometimes, your wand may reject you. This is quite common, and dont be sad! When you are picking your wand, thank the spirit of the tree, and then cleanse your wand to avoid wand rejection. But do not worry if this does happen!
4. Choosing the right decorations.
Different decorations can have a huge effect on your wand! Kind of like 'Choosing the right type of wood.' section, if you are choosing a wand for money spells only, decorate it with green, and attack a crystal/gemstone associated with money. (Crystals/Gemstones on your wand are not a essential, so dont worry about that, it just slightly affects the power.) For another example, if you wanted a wand for love, decorate it with pink ribbons, attach a Rose Quartz, and so on.
Ps - If your wand is a all-purpose wand, and you are stuck on a gemstone to attach, use quartz! Its perfect.
Thats the basics of wand making over with, I hope this helped, and that you learned a thing or two. :)
