Wands cut on the Hazel full moon, are powerful in the white magics and healing.
The hazel fairy tends to be a fickle one, but is also very wise and is a “bringer” of insight and inspiration; she can help you find knowledge and to develop your intuition. The hazel fairy can also teach dowsing and how to use the current with the land (the ley lines); in addition she encourages meditation and awards clarity on those who respect and honour her.
This wand has been “treated” with beeswax polish following its de-barking and sanding process; 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
