- It is a solar tree and is used for the Yule log in Germanic tradition
- Divining rods are cut from Ash trees at Midsummer (remember though always ask permission =)
- Eating red Ash buds was said to bring protection from sorcery.
- Traditional witches brooms were made from an Ash pole, Birch twigs and Willow bindings.
- Attracts lightening and so is used in rain magic.
- Ash seeds are protective when carried and so it protects against "evil" sorcery.
- If the Ash leafed first it meant wet weather would follow, if the Oak leafed first, then dry weather would follow.
- Used to make wands for healing and meditation.
- Leaves placed in a pillow or beneath a pillow induce psychic dreams.
- Used in sea magic and keeps you safe at sea.
- Scatter the leaves around ur property to protect ur home and all who enter.
- Place a piece of Ash wood or bark over your front door to drive away negative energy.
