The renowned European Wandmaker Mykew Gregorovitch wrote that hawthorn ‘’makes a strange, contradictory wand, as full of paradoxes as the tree that gave it birth, whose leaves and blossoms heal, and yet whose branches smell of death’’. Hawthorn is indeed complex and intriguing in its nature just like the owners who best suit wands made from it. I have observed that the Hawthorn wand feels most at home with owners who have faced great personal tragedy, and have tumultuous pasts. Hawthorn wands may be particularly suited to healing magic, but they are also adept at curses, hexes and jinxes. It is generally observed that the Hawthorn Wand seems most at home with a conflicted nature, or with a Witch or Wizard passing through a period of turmoil. Hawthorn is not at all easy to master, however, and should only ever be placed in the hands of a witch or wizard of a proven talent, or the consequences might be dangerous. Hawthorn Wands have a notable peculiarity: their spells can, when badly handled, backfire.
