For as long as we have been making witch wands and other wooden witchcraft tools, amulets, talismans, and jewellery, we have also made our own blend of beeswax polish. For the most part, I don’t mind sharing the ingredients, however, I won’t be sharing my recipe. You would need to get it just right. And do bear in mind that this is our intellectual property and we advise not to make your own version using whatever ingredients we disclose and selling it, with or without our name. Thank you. Now, back to the lovely polish!
Our wand polish, or wand wax, contains the beeswax of British bees, grape seed extract to prevent it going “off”, a little Lavender oil, Myrrh oil to protect your wand from magickal adversity, and other natural oils which are not harmful at all. In fact, whilst you polish your wand, you can even use this as a lip balm, it is that safe! Pregnant women must use due care in using anything with Lavender oil in it, however.
Use it when you receive your wand to enhance it with your energies once you’ve cleansed and consecrated your wand. It’s especially nice to use without a cloth and only the tiniest amount on your fingertips is necessary. When we send a wand to its new owner, we always enclose a 10ml pot of our Speaking of Witch Wands Wand Polish at no extra charge, as well as a wand fact sheet. We do want our customers to get off to the best possible start with their new wiccan wand. Once you have used the wand polish, you will be happy to find that we also now offer a larger 60ml pot of the polish which will last about a year with normal use.
One thing I would like to say is that with lighter coloured woods, they can tend to turn yellow-ish with the beeswax wand polish. If that is not a problem for you, fine, however, with Ash, Holly, and Rowan we always use only mineral oil. One of the woods whose beauty is very much enhanced by the beeswax wand polish is Oak. Quite breath-taking! And although it’s a matter of personal taste when using the beeswax wand polish on lighter woods, we still always send a 10ml pot of it to the new wand customer.
Many thanks for reading and we hope it helps!
