Why Every Witch Needs a Witch's Broom (Besides Tidying Up)

Witch's brooms aren’t just for show or the occasional dust bunny roundup. These magical tools are steeped in history, serving as a witch's right-hand man (or woman) for everything from protecting the homestead to wedding ceremonies. Yes, you heard that right! Jumping over a witch's broom with your beloved is the OG way to tie the knot, Wicca-style.


The Lore of the Witch's Broom: A History Buff's Delight

Our trusty witch's broom, or 'broomstick,' as it's affectionately known in pop culture, has a backstory worthy of its own saga.


Originating from pagan traditions, the original witch broom meaning was a symbol of sweeping away evil spirits or negative energies. And the iconic image of a witch flying on a broomstick through the night sky can be traced back to medieval folklore, where it was believed witches used brooms to apply their flying ointments.

DIY Magic: How to Make a Real Witches Broom

Forget about Amazon; the best way to get your hands on a witch's broom is to make one yourself. Witch broom making is like arts and crafts but with a magical twist. For witch broom ideas, head out into nature and find a stick that speaks to you (politely, of course). Birch, ash, and willow are top picks for that authentic witchy vibe. Next, gather some bristles—straw, heather, birch twigs, hazel branches, or even lavender for that extra oomph of natural magick and peace, protection, and balance. It's like a spell all on its own!


Now, here comes the fun part: put it all together! Tie your bristles to your stick with twine, ribbon, or whatever you've got lying around, and voila! You have a homemade witch broom. As you craft, pour your intentions into your witch's broom. Looking for love, prosperity, or maybe just a good night’s sleep? Let your witch's broom know; it’s got your back.

Witch's Broom Etiquette: The Do's and Don'ts

Yes, there's an etiquette to broom magic! Here are some whimsical yet wise guidelines to keep in mind:

Decorating and enchanting broom magic

  • Do sweep your magical space with intention, moving in a deosil (clockwise) direction to attract positive energies.

Don't use your magical broom for mundane cleaning—unless you're intentionally clearing negativity, then sweep away!
  • Do remember to 'ground' your broom after flying. Just kidding! But do store it in a place of honor where its energies remain pure and potent, so definitely not under a couch cushion!
