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. This liminal nature perfectly suits its mercurial attributes. Hazel is one of the classic woods for the making of wands – the famous Grimoire “The Key Of Solomon” says wands should be made of this wood. Perfect for all magickal works of manifestation, healing, cunning, commerce, travel, and communication. Keppens are mini wands – they come from Traditional English Witchcraft – they are easily concealed in the palm of the hand or carried in the pocket or purse – and so are very portable and perfect for working magick in public without being noticed. Our 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 keppens are consecrated with Luna Ignis Oils and Incense suitable for the god/goddess the wood is sacred to.
