Witches' Flaming Besom
Hand Crafted with Natural Wood & Red Broomcorn
Express your inner fire with this beautiful custom broom. The red broomcorn is handmade with non-toxic dye that, under most circumstances, is stable and will not run. The earthy color gives this broom a fierce feel making it great for rituals expressing passion or love. This is especially handy for those who honor Thor or Lilith. Use it as a powerful ally in your ritual or as a decoration to liven up any space. A great choice for those looking to spice things up.
A broom winder, from an original machine from the 1800s is used to apply the broomcorn to the stick. Then a post Civil War era boom vice sews the broomcorn. From the vice, the brooms go to the "Kick Winder" where plaiting the broom stalks is done. Once the broom is finished, it goes to the "cropper", another 1800s tool, to be trimmed to the desired shape, whether rounded, straight, or angled. Your unique broom will be approximately 40 to 42 inches (1.01 to 1.06 m). Your broom is made with natural wood branches, and crafted individually so it will vary slightly from photo.
Traditionally brooms and besoms have been used for:
- Sweeping Evil and Negativity from Your Path
- Preparing Your Space for Ritual
- Handfasting/Wedding Gift
- House Warming Gift
