This wood has incredibly diverse energy, allowing
it to be an all-purpose wood for magickal
workings. While containing almost entirely
masculine energy, it is also influenced by the power
of Venus, bringing a softer, intuitive, feminine
energy as well.
Spiritual energy is strongest within this wood,
followed by the power of water. Water and spirit
combined make this wood excellent for any
working dealing with change, acts of will, or
evocation (this is the wood we use to create our
athames). This is also an excellent healing wood.
The diversity of the energy in this wood makes it
useful for evocation as well as banishment rituals.
Bowtruckle bark is not the most powerful of cores, but it does give a definate boost to the wielder's nature spells. It is especially potent in rowan wands, as these are the trees Bowtruckles most commonly gaurd. It combines well with any other core.
