I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Favored Woods For Magickal Wands

Here is a list of the different woods favored by different magickal traditions:

  • Ainu: Bamboo, with leaves remaining. Top carved into spiral designs
  • Berber: Oleander
  • Celtic: Hawthorn, hazel
  • China: Peach, willow
  • Druid (British): Hawthorn, rowan, yew
  • Druid (Gaul): Oak
  • Romany: Elm
  • Russian: Slavic birch
  • Scythian: Willow
Lightning-struck wood is considered packed with power. Driftwood makes an excellent wand; it does not have to be cut and combines the powers ofEarth and sea.

Keep in mind that no wood will work as well for you as the wood from a tree with which you have forged an alliance.

Wands are not limited to wood. Metal wands are excellent power conductors. Embellish with crystals, seashells and charms. Copper is a particularly excellent conductor of energy. An iron wand provides power and protection.
