Wych Elm Properties:
Wych Elm energises the mind and balances the heart; it is associated with the Crone stage of the triple Goddess and is also associated with the earth Goddess Druantia (The Queen of the Druids). The Elm tree stands at the entrance to the underworld as a living connection between the living and spirit worlds.
The Elm adds stability and grounding; it has strong magic relating to endurance and fertility, having connections with all phases of life and rebirth.
The Elm is also known as the Elven tree and is their natural home; the fairies are also attracted to it, but no specific fairy associated with it.
This wand has been “treated” with beeswax polish following its de-barking and sanding process; it also has 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
