  Rated 5/5 Stars
SpellsSpiritual  ► Enchantment  ► Witches Besom
Will tell you what to make your Besom out of and a verse for flight.
You will need the following items for this spell:

  • Birch Twigs
  • A Branch from an Ash wood tree
  • Shoots of Willow
  • Aconite

Casting Instructions for 'Witches Besom'

Find a branch from an Ash wood tree, make sure its big enough to be a handle, compare it o a normal brooms handle. Attach the Birch twigs to one end by tying it on with the Willow shoots. Once the shoots are tied tightly, make sure the twigs won't fall out, get rather long twigs so it won't look odd and your done.

I'm going to include a flight part on this spell but as I mentioned before it is old folklore and am unaware if it will work. I can't try it myself cause I do not have the materials here in my country.

What you do is take this Aconite (other wise known as monkshood, wolfsbane, leopard's bane, women's bane, Devil's helmet or blue rocket). Mount your broom and say: 'Horse and hattock! Away! Away! Hear me! Hear me! Horse and hattock! Away! Away!' now apparently you should fel the broom give a little hop, if this happens run and chant the words I typed above then jump and see what happens! Please provide me with feedback if you do try the second part of the broom.

Would it work if I used a mountain ash branch instead of an ashwood branch?

Different wood has different magickal properties, if you feel connected to a different wood, or you discover a different type works better for you, go for it

Cool thanks Nekoshema.

Besoms are Magic brooms used to sweep away negative energy, not fly. Real witches do not fly on brooms.
