To make a witch’s broom you’ll need:
If you are planning to make a broom for Halloween, or every day sweeping and travel, I suggest you use ash for the handle. Ash is the wood that was used to build ships because it offers protection against drowning. Using ash will ensure that a witch’s feet will stay dry as she hovers above water!
Birch twigs are recommended for the sweeping part of the broom as they will capture and hold any evil spirits that need to be exorcised. The birch twigs are attached to the ash broom handle with willow wands.
Done? Let me guess! You can’t get it up in the air, right? Well, you have to rub the handle with magic herbs! Tomorrow I’ll tell you the safest one to use. Many are poisonous to touch!
You’ll find more on Ash on the 10/4/2022 blog post.
