Ever wonder if magic brooms really exist? Did witches really use these centuries ago? I have come across a delight ritual called the “Heather Besom (or Heather’s Broom)”. But first I would like to give a little type on making a magic broom and some history.
First you need to find a birch stick that is appropriate to your hit, to which you would use as the broom handle. Then you need to gather some heather (broom twigs) (as in the plant heather), if you do not have access to this you can use other small twigs from other plants. Get some twine and gather the heather with the birch and tie it all together.
Now, what did they use these brooms for? In Medieval England, besoms regarded as a feminine tool, and when a woman was not at home she would leave her besom (broom) outside of her door. These besoms where also used in Gypsy weddings, the broomstick wedding. The couple getting married would jump back and forth over the broom holding hands, before the rush ring was placed on the females finger.
For the ritual you will need a besom and an incense stick. It is best to do this on a waning moon. Start from the highest room of you house and sweep backwards through each doorway. This symbolizes sweeping away any bad/negative feelings. When you get to the threshold (front door) of your home, continue to sweep this energy out of your home. Then hold your broom up to the sky and shake it three times, turning counter clock wise and say, “Spirits fly with the wind; be banished from my way”. Complete the ritual by lighting the incense in the center of your home to sweeten the atmosphere. The ritual is finish!
