The Magick of Oak…

Gender:  Masculine; Planet:  Sun; Element:  Fire

Sacred to Dagna, Dianus, Jupiter, Thor, Zeus, Herne, Janus, Rhea, Cybele, Hecate, Pan, and Erato

Oak was a source of food for early settlers in Britain and revered by the Druids.  The Druids (traditionally) would not meet for rituals unless an Oak tree was present.  Religious articles were often fashioned from the tree and Witches danced beneath it.  A tree as long-lived as the Oak naturally offers magickal protection and if you have two twigs of Oak, bound by a red thread in an equal-armed cross, it would be well for you to hang it in your home.

Acorns, of course, have always been used for nature’s help – guarding against lightning strikes, drawing to the bearer wealth, among other things.  But, have you ever considered the magickal power of the Oak bark and chips?

Logs of Oak were often burned in fireplaces to draw off illness.  Nowadays, not everyone has a fireplace, however, Oak still has a healing property in the bark and chips!  They can be ground fine and used in incense, with the same effect.  Also, in incense to draw money and wealth, protection, luck, fertility, and potency.

Carrying a small pouch of Oak bark and chips in a wallet or handbag draws wealth and adds protection to the bearer.  It can also be used in poppets to effect the properties that you desire for yourself or another.

We sell 50g resealable packets of Oak bark and wood chips on our Etsy Shop (which you may also access on our Facebook page). at http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SpeakingofWitchWands along with other magickal things.   If you choose to shop our Etsy shop from Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SpeakingOfWitchWands you will automatically receive 20% off your purchase of any items in our shop!   Please stop by and have a look – and don’t be dismayed by the small number of items as we are adding new bits and bobs daily.  Thank you for your support and many blessings!

The Magickal Cypress Tree

Many of you may or may not be aware of the magickal properties of many trees.  For instance, did you know that the Cypress tree has a “folk name” of “The Tree of Death”?  It is thought to be so because at one time in Egypt, coffins were made of Cypress wood.  However, funnily enough, one of the magickal properties of Cypress wood is longevity!  If one carries it on their person, in a pocket or worn as jewelry, it is said to give long life and protection.  Cypress is also comforting in times of sorrow,  such as the death of a friend or loved one as it eases the mind and allays grief if carried to the funeral.  Many deities hold sacred the Cypress such as MithrasAphrodite, Hekat, CupidApollo and others.

We sell 25g resealable packets of Cypress wood chips on our Etsy Shop (which you may also access on our Facebook page) at http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SpeakingofWitchWands along with other magickal things.  Please stop by and have a look – and don’t be dismayed by the small number of items as we are adding new bits and bobs daily.  Thank you for your support and many blessings!
