Hazel is sacred to Mercury – Lord Of Magick. Hazel is a liminal tree that likes to grow on the edge of woodlands next to clearings, paths and fields.
American Hazel is more of a small shrub that bears few nuts… English Hazel is a tree.
Hazel is one of the most famous old world magickal woods. The Grimoire – Greater Key Of Solomon The King calls for a wand of Hazel that must be cut from a virgin tree at midsummer. Hazel has been used since ancient times as it grows straight “Wythies” that are flexible and perfect for basket making, canes, woven fences and more. It was so useful that finding an un-cut “Virgin” tree was very very hard as Hazel trees would be harvested of their wythies for miles and miles around.
We cut our Hazel from a woodland in Kent in the south east of England when we visited in May and June this year. Finding a “Virgin” Hazel tree is now days much easier!
Perfect for all magickal works of manifestation, healing, cunning, commerce, travel, and communication.
Our wands and keppens are hand carved and then sanded with 8 grades of sandpaper – the final being 400 grit which is used for fine furniture making, the wood shines as though polished and varnished. All our wands are consecrated with Luna Ignis Oils and Incense suitable for the god/goddess the wood is sacred to.
