Beech is said to reveal ancient knowledge and often used in divination.
It is a good conductor of energies but does not hold the energy well.
Beech wands open strong lines of communication.
The Beech Fairy is strongly feminine and a Queen, the “Mother of the Woods” whose gifts are prosperity and wisdom, also aids those who are hanging on to rigid ideas which need to be let go before they can move on; it is believed that she may grant wishes to those who believe in her.
The Beech Fairy helps with recovery of ancient wisdom and creates a gentle magical atmosphere allowing a true connection with the past.
This wand has been “treated” with beeswax polish following its de-barking and sanding process; it has had 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
