Explore the Powers and Properties of Reed Wood with Jaun D'makre.
As I write this, it is the end of November, and the 12 lunar month comes to a close. We have just passed by the time of Ngetal, the Reed, ruler of the 12th moon.
The Reed is a common inhabitant of lake shores, river shallows, dykes, lochs, and ditches across the world. It is slight of build, and bendy, easily bowing beneath the wind. To you and I, it may not appear to be a tree at all, but a wetland plant.

If you were born between June 10th and July 7th, this is your sacred birth tree in the Ogham Tree Cycle, for the noble oak tree is the ruler of the 7th lunar month.
An Oak Tree wand manifests nobility and strength and reconnects us to ancient traditions and lost magics of a much older world. The oak is the Monarch of the Woods, a King among trees.

American Chestnut is a rare, and endangered species, nearly extinct. But don't worry, I didn't illegally cut any trees to get the material. The wood used for this wand was from an old salvaged barn board, and honestly, I've no idea how old this wood is. I wouldn't be surprised if it was close to 200 years old! Now that is some intense history to this wand!

Black unicorn tail hairs are not common choices for the average wand maker. While the wands they create are much more powerful than the average pine and white unicorn tail hair type, the building process of black unicorn wands is complicated, and sometimes, deadly.

Building a wand is an elaborate process, or it is when I make them, anyway. However there is good reason for it. I firmly believe that the wands I create are the best on etsy, possibly the world. Why? Because every single wand billet is hand selected from my own back 40 acres, hand cut, hand carved, cores inserted and detailed with hand tools.
