ALTERNATIVE / WITCH BOXES.
SMUDGE FEATHERS AND FANS.
Within the rest of the Arts and Crafts you will see on these pages, I also create Smudge feathers and fans. They have been used for centuries by indigenous peoples worldwide, in a variety of ceremonies, to move the smoke from burning incense sticks/cones, etc. They have become extremely popular across the world for the many ways in which they can be used, in both spiritual and alternative religions.
The smoke is used to cleanse the room, or any other place you are in, and also to purify the auras of the people involved in the ceremony.
The fans are all handcrafted by me, using ethically sourced feathers from a variety of places. I clean and sterilise all of the feathers before turning them into fans. Those feathers which have not been dyed, will of course all differ in their patterns.
The larger white ones are hand painted to give them the patterns found on American Eagle feathers (white with various-sized black tips) Eagle feathers are considered sacred to the Native Americans, and were only presented to the bravest and strongest warriors of the tribe.
Once they are clean and dry, I paint a selection of designs on them and add more feathers, beads, and/or other embellishments. With each Feather / Fan, you will receive three incense cones and a small stand to place them on.
(Please be sure never to leave lit candles, incense or any other smouldering items unattended.)
Only £9.50 each.
Drawing on a long Native American tradition, Wishing feathers are said to grant the owner three wishes. By pulling out one of the feathers you create the intention to make a wish. When your wish is made, keep that one feather in your purse. Every time you see it, re-affirm your wish.
Once your wish is granted, release that feather, allowing it to return to Nature, it has done its job. You now have two more wishes left. Repeat.
PRICE - £5.50
Witch Boxes/Drawers contain an eclectic selection of items useful to anyone beginning their journey into alternative lifestyles. They are also very handy if you are traveling and would like to take an altar with you! I can vary the designs and colours as required.
The box contents are all packed individually in tissue paper to keep them safe on their journey to their new owner and imbued with Reiki energy.
They consist of - a tumbled Amethyst stone, a small clear Quartz point, and three small bottles of herbs (lavender, sage and rosemary) Also included are - a feather, a candle, and a shell, with some incense cones and a little ceramic square to stand them on. They also come with a lovely, folded, aged parchment, giving the beginner some uses for the contents. An ideal little gift for the Witch, or wannabe Witch, in your life!
