What could be better than a Kitchen Witches broom?! Why a purple Kitchen Witches broom of course! This beautiful handmade broom is a must have for your home or ritual work. Use it for cleansing your domain or preparing your sacred space for rituals.
This handcrafted, old world style broom is functional yet crafted for you, our magical Witch and Wizard friends. The broomcorn has been dyed with a non-toxic deep purple color on the outside, with natural colored broomcorn on the inside of the besom. Each Witches Broom measures approximately 54 to 56 inches tall and weighs about 3 pounds. Natural wood branches; some straight, some curvy. Each is individually handmade and will vary slightly in size, color and weight. Easy to hang when not in use which will protect the broomcorn from bending damage.
Traditionally brooms and besoms have been used for:
House Warming Gift
Protection from Bad Luck
"Jump the Broom" for wedding/hand fasting
Sweep away Evil and Negatives
Sweep away Debris
Hang in Entrance-way, as well as under your bed, for Protection, Harmony and Good Luck.

About your Broom:
The broom sticks are harvested sustainably in Oregon with a local restoration program. The sticks then go into a kiln for drying. A band saw is used in a very unusual, creative way to shapes and sculpt your broom stick... many times you will see a wood spirit peering.
The best 100% broomcorn called "hurl" is used in creating each broom. A broom winder, from an original machine in the 1800's is used to apply the broomcorn to the stick. Then a post Civil War era boom vice is used to flatten and sew the broomcorn. From the vice, the brooms go to the "Kick Winder" where platting the broom stalks is done. Once the broom is finished, it goes to the "cropper", another 1800's tool, to be trimmed to the desired shape, whether rounded, straight or angled.
Please note: If you would like a broom for Halloween/Samhain or a Yule gift, plan ahead - the Autumn months and Yule season are our busiest time for brooms and besoms.
Warning: Prolonged exposure to sunlight may fade the broomcorn over time.
