I have tried several stones I really felt were appropriate, held in place by hand. The wand made it clear it disagrees.....................
So I have now decided (agreed) to just keep it natural, and just give it a good protective natural rubbed finish. This I will do after a thorough cleansing with sage and copal, and after it has been infused with light.
Somehow a rubdown with Tea Tree Oil before finishing seems appropriate.
@Myc, I like the idea of beeswax. I am not sure how to do that. Basicly melt the wax onto the wood, and then rub/buff?
Hahahaha I wass reading and reading and well tea tree oil was sruck in my head I use this miixed with flax seed oil on furnature especialy in damp areas its kept mold off of many antiques ;)
not saying your wand will mold but tea tree is great for health etc it add that energies and its suitable for the wood it soak in like it belongs :) and merge with it good call :)
Tea Tree oil sounds great. Beeswax can be mixed with oil in any ratio from a few drops to a major contribution. It has been almost 40 years since my last batch but if memory serves me, it takes about 5 parts oil to 1 part beeswax to get it down to lip balm consistency. Might want to make a bit of sweet smelling chapstick type lip balm while you are at it. The point being, only add enough to suit your purpose. .
You can melt beeswax with just the sun. On a hot day, in a pot or cooking pan, cover with a piece if glass. I often left a bread pan with an inch of water and added the wax cappings and old dirty broken combs, then let the sun melt it all day in the sun to separate out and purify the wax. Honey, and impurities drop into the water leaving a nice clean wax floating to the top, ready for processing into new foundation sheets. It worked great without any electricity.
