I'm in Arizona (Western USA) and in the quest for finding a relatively straight piece of wood I decided on using a section of a Yucca flowering stalk. Its not exactly wood like it doesn't have a tradition 'grain' but tightly packed individual fibers. (Makes it so easy to carve) I have been using a Yucca stalk I cleaned up as a healing staff and it hasn't really presented odd properties other than when I charge it at my altar I can put my hand at one side and it will slight push down and at the other side push up, not sure how unique that is though. Now that I am making a wand will it have any unique properties making it better at some jobs and bad at others? All answers are appreciated!
Wands simply help the user direct their energy and helps in visualization. Maybe someone else has a specific use to making a wand but that's all I use mine for. I think it's mainly the fact that you took time to work on it for your use is what gives it a personalization.
It's not going to have any unique properties like a video game where a burnt stick will shoot out fire if that's what your asking. The property to a wand is simply an extension of your power and doubles your intentions and desires as you perform spells.
Other properties to yucca that aren't magic related is it can probably absorb water while oak wood floats? Yucca is lighter? That's pretty much it.
Yea when it's damp it's damp! I knew it wouldn't shoot fire lol but like I know some herbs are better at some stuff for like strengh or love etc. Didnt know if wood had that deal too. Thank you all for responding!
Yucca is a plant that has been used for hundreds of years. The different parts of the plant have been used for healing, cleansing, protection, etcetera. (A Google search will provide you with a more complete list of magical properties.) While I'm sure that you will be able to use it for any purposes you would use a wand for, I would have to say that a wand made from yucca may be able to naturally enhance any workings or spells being performed forthose types of things.
