Wood and Wands
By: / Knowledgeable
Post # 1
When making a wand or a staff, you may wish to pick a type of wood associated with the magical intent that you have for said tool. The following is a brief list of woods that may help in your decision making:

Ebony: magical power and protection

Oak: strength, good luck, protection, good health, and healing

Pine: wealth, exorcism, and healing

Redwood: longevity

Cherry: love

Teak: wealth

Cedar: healing, longevity, purification, and protection

Maple: love and wealth

Mahogany: protection against storms and lightening

Rattan: good luck and strength

Walnut: good health

Willow: often used for magic that involves the cycles of life: birth, death, and rebirth. It can be used in magic to help the ill and elderly. Burning willow is also said to help a recently passed soul cross over.

Fir: associated with prosperity, power, and nobility. It is also often used as wands in rituals involving birth or rebirth.

(Also, if you can find furniture made of the same wood listed above, it can bring those qualities into your home and help fill your home with those magical vibrations.)

The following information on wood and wands is in alphabetical order. I have broken the information down into short sections and will add more as I type it.

_________________________________________________________________

Alder: associated with the magical properties of both strength and foundation. It is, therefore, often used in wands associated with spells or rituals related to these qualities, as well as in rituals or spells associated with water. Alder wands are also used in rituals for: spiritual growth, bravery, confidence and charisma, and shielding the astral self from unwanted energies.

Apple: associated with the magical properties of fertility, peace, and joy. It is often used as a wand for rituals related to these properties. Apple wands are also used in spells and rituals related to: fairy magic, love, visions/psychic awareness, harmony and peace.

Ash: often used as a wand in rituals or spells associated with: communication, intelligence, metal blockages, promoting spiritual love and health, protection against unwanted energies, horse magic, protection, for enhancing skills in the arts, and weather magic. (I would assume weather magic is referring to working with the weather and it's cycles)

Aspen: useful for wands in rituals and spells associated with: intuition, communication with the spirit realm, and to overcome adversity or obstacles.

Hawthorn wands are used in spells and rituals associated with purity, protection, fairy magic, psychic protection and awareness, glamor magic, banishing and cleansing.

The designs on the wand and the decorations added (feathers, gems, etc) also should reflect the intent.
