Sacred to Venus, Birch is used in workings of healing and health. Birch is often the first tree to grow after a fire and a symbol of regeneration, its leaves and oils have other uses too. This piece of birch is 12 inches in length was gathered at our covenstead at Beltane. The wand is phallic in nature… perhaps the festival of fire and virility at the time it was gathered called it to manifest in this final form. The wand should be used for works of healing and of Venus. It was consecrated in an anointing oil suitable for the fair goddess and by the incense of Beltane.
