Non-corrosive Ritual Tool Cleansing Brew

For consecration & anointing Wicca, Pagan & neo-shamanic ritual magic tools, salt is probably the first thing that comes to most minds when considering removing unwanted accumulated metaphysical energy, but salt is corrosive to a metal athame or a copper cauldron. Salt could also scratch the floor during indoor Circle casting -- not good. I collect vintage tools and craft new ones, so I do a lot of spiritual cleansing and anointing. Over the years I've been asked often about what I use because items folks have purchased arrive with a clear bright energy -- this is the brew I use.

I'm happy to be able to offer a limited supply of my potion for cleansing and welcoming ritual tools! Take a small amount of this pleasant smelling herbal blend to brew a tea like infusion or add to your own oil for a slow infusion. This hand mixed blend of herbs is designed to remove unwanted energy, generate a protective field, plus send a positive bonding energy to both new tools and old, helping to increase a magical connection between you and your ritual tool pal. In the form of a water infusion the blend can also be used to prepare an area for Circle casting because of its cleansing and protective qualities.

This blend may also be burned in a safe dish to smudge like a sage wand; burning mugwort is excellent for calming active ghosts plus each of the herbs are great for cleaning energy and building new good energy in its place. The scent burning is earthy, but pleasant.


All natural herbs won't damage metal ritual tools like purification salt does. Package includes instructions for use. *For ceremonial use. Not intended for ingestion.

Phoenix Medicine Wand


 
 Named the Phoenix Medicine Wand this compact 10 3/4" x 1/2" ash wood stick features a magical core of ingredients similar to a those found in medicine bags and bundles, as well as other unique aspects. The size and feel of this wand is sturdy; not that it's unbreakable, but it could handle being stuffed into a Harry Potter style pocket for magic on the go.
The wood itself is a specially gathered White Ash (more info). One of the many magical uses for Ash Wood is for working with or warding away lightning, associated with the Phoenix or Thunderbird. The tip is capped with a fine miniature clear quartz crystal point from the American Southwest, set clean and firmly into place. The smoothed back layers of tree bark near the tip create a pattern reminiscent of a red feather, though the overall color is more brown than seen in the photographs. On this end of the wand a gently smoothed knot revealed a natural sacred spiral design in the bark and others similar to eyes or Yoni symbols. The Yoni like marks were created from the claws of fire red Cardinal birds having perched on the living branch, and the tree healed itself.
The pommel end contains the core. Within the natural stem cavity metaphysical ingredients have been placed to attract energy similar to the legendary Phoenix or Thunderbird. The materials include: Red Pheasant feather, a bit of Brown Bear hide, a bit of Red Fox fur, Mugwort herb, White Sage, Rosemary. This core was then sealed with natural paper clay, and the entire wand was lightly coated with a protective gloss varnish.
