Hello my pretty crystal wands! These little beauts are handmade from polished teakwood and hail from India. Each one features a pointed crystal tip made from either amethyst, rock crystal or rose quartz. Plain, yet powerful enough to direct energies to where you need. The crystals are secured with a silver plated keep. There are only a couple of each one presently and serve as good value for money, so you may have to be quick if you want one!
These may be used for alternative healing during crystal therapy sessions, energy placements or as a good ole’ fashioned wand for your altar. Wands are used to direct energies, cast spells, drawing sigils in the air and used as ritual pieces. Wands are associated with the element of air, which is East on your altar and may be used for invoking Goddess/ God during your workings. The wood itself is said to have mystical and healing properties (see below) and when teamed with crystals, enhances the effects. I’ve popped a basic breakdown of the wood and each crystal use to maybe help you decide, depending on what you wish to use it for.
Teakwood: Is a feminine wood, holding the attributes of the element of water. An ideal companion for this wand is someone who is creative and in touch with the natural world. Although it holds feminine qualities, it is a powerful aid in defensive or protective magick, almost crone like in this sense. As an extremely hardy wood, it may be used to assist in perseverance magick, bringing successes over a period of time. In some parts of the world, it is revered by indigenous people for its healing qualities and the mystical properties of the khodam spirit which resides in the sacred tree. Teak wood emits auspicious energies and blessings. Used in alternative/holistic therapies for gut issues, migraines & headaches whilst the natural scent brings calm and peace to ones mind.
