Brooms and pointed hats are traditional symbols of witches and wise women. The association between witches and brooms goes back to ancient times. The pagan community would come together for ceremonies to ensure healthy crops. During the ritual they would mount pitchforks, poles, and brooms; and ride them like horses into the fields, leaping high into the air and dancing. During medieval times brooms were a symbol of female domesticity. Since most witches were female, the broom became intrinsically linked with Witches. In modern times, brooms are reminders of the power and unlimited possibilities of the Wiccan path.
This is a powerful, yet simple magic wand that calls forth the powers of the Witches, both ancient and modern. Shaped like the traditional round broom, the large Witch’s Broom Wand is a wonderfully versatile spell casting tool. The broom is hollow at the bottom, allowing you to insert spells. You can write your spells on a small piece of paper and place them in the broom before casting your spell. The spell can remain in the broom when placed on your altar. Both the Witch’s Broom Wand and Hat can stand on an altar, reminders of the Wise Witches who came before us. The broom and hat can sit separately or the hat can be placed on top of the broom when it is standing up. The hat can also be used for storing small herb packets or stones.
The Hat is 4” tall while the
Witch’s Broom Wand
is 13” long.
Both are cast in the finest 100% lead-free pewter.
