Just to give an update - I read up on some wandlore, learned a lot in the process, and decided to mix old school with a modern twist and a big splash of me.
I decided to open myself up as much as possible to the spirits through meditation, and let them lead me. They led me to a specific tree (I've never experienced such a strong connection), which was a Pride Of India which blossoms pink. I thanked the tree for her gift, and cut a beautiful piece off. I skimmed the bark without making the wood bleed, then infused it with rose oil, tempered it, infused it again, and then put it away safely. Tonight I have infused it again with rose oil, sprinkled it with sage, blessed it with a moon spell, and I'm leaving it in the light of the full moon.
This is the instructions I've gained from my research, and I must say, the whole time I was in contact with my wand, I felt a personal connection to it, like it was an extention of me.
The whole experience has been enlightening, and I have gained immense knowledge, as well as a renewed respect for the spiritual world and all that which we do not fully grasp or understand.
Thank you to all who have replied, I look forward to walking this magical path with you, and sharing with you my experiences. You are an awesome bunch of people.
Much love and blessed be
