I've been going back and forth between whether I want to purchase an Athame or make a wand to add to my supplies. I'm thinking of gathering a large limb off of my grandmother's large old oak tree and just making my own wand. I think doing this off of such an old tree will aid in the energy of the wand. Some people prefer to purchase a wand but I feel as though it would be more spiritual and powerful to make a wand. I'm not very good at wood crafting or "whittling" as it's known where I'm from but, I think if I take my time, I can make a perfect wand, for me. I'll definitely update on my progress. I'm not sure when I will be starting on this.
