Besom

Items needed:

  • 4ft dowel - 1 inch in diameter or a tree branch of the same approximate size
  • ball of twine
  • scissors
  • straw
  • thin willow twigs
  • broom corn or pliable herb stock

Take the straw or other herb stalk that you have chosen and soak overnight in luke warm salted water. The water swells the stalk slightly for bending without breakage, and the salt dispels former energies.

When ready, remove stalks from the water and dry for just a bit. Not too much or the stalk will stiffen up, again. Place the dowel on a table where you have room to work. Start lining the stalks along the dowel , about 3 inches from the bottom, moving backwards.

Begin binding the stalks to the dowel with the twine. Tie very securely. You may add as many layers as you like, depending on how full you want the Besom to be.

When stalks are secure, gently bend the top stalks down over the binding. When all have been bent over, secure the stalks again with more twine a couple of inches under the first binding.

Allow to air dry for a day or two. The dowel can then be stained, painted, or carved into to make personal.

Remember to concentrate and charge at the next full moon!

Lessons Learned

I've learned that once a relationship is over, if you experienced more smiles than tears, then it wasn't a waste of time.
