Powers Protection, Exorcism, Purification
Magical Uses: Birch twigs have been used to exorcise spirits by gently striking possessed people or animals, since the birch is a purifying or cleansing herb. The tree is also used for protection. The traditional broom of the Witches was made of birch twigs. Highly protective. Boil some of the bark in water, and then add this water to the bath, to cocoon yourself in protective energy. Can be burned on charcoal to remove negative energies from the home or place of business. Hang some over the front door to protect the home.
