Giving illumination and knowledge

The Apple has an extremely beautiful Fairy who is also frequently seductive! Her gifts are those of everlasting youth and beauty; she “invites” us to enjoy sensuous pleasures of all descriptions with the knowledge that there is always plenty to “go around”.  She also assures us that nothing can be taken from us if it is truly ours.  The apple tree has many associations with mythical creatures, including the unicorn who lives beneath its branches and the May Flower fairies spreading an atmosphere of love and happiness.

This wand has been “treated” with beeswax polish following debarking and sanding; it also has the following herbs inserted into the handle.

Mugwort – For strength, protection and cleansing       

Vervain – for Protection and purification

Yarrow – for clearing negativity and easing fears
