Notes: Choosing the Best Besom

Traditionally a witch’s flying besom is made using Ash for the shaft with Birch twigs for the bristles and Willow strands for the binding cords. Besides being used for transportation, the besom empowers the rider. The type of empowerment depends on the type of wood used:

  • Ash: protection
  • Oak: power
  • Pine: luck
  • Redwood: longevity
  • Maple: wealth
  • Walnut: wisdom
  • Cinnamon: insight
  • Birch: purification
  • Willow: control
