Our modern besom is meticulously crafted using a diverse array of dried flowers and foliage, featuring juniper, eucalyptus, cedar, yarrow, among others. Each broom is a symbol of the protective essence of the winter season. The handles are from fallen branches, chosen with respect and honor for the natural cycles.

The word "besom" (pronounced BEE-zum) originates from the Old English word "besma," meaning broom. Traditionally made from twigs and branches. During the witch trials era,brooms were believed to secretly store items like herbs and oils. These traditions have evolved into modern practices. A widely practiced tradition is the hanging of brooms above doorways, this is believed to preserve positive energy within a space and repel negative forces. Additionally, setting brooms with bristles facing upwards is thought to bring good fortune and increase the broom's durability. In various cultures, the act of sweeping with a broom is seen as a ceremonial way to rid a space of negative energy. While the image of a witch flying on a broomstick is more folklore than fact, it remains a potent emblem of witchcraft in popular culture.

Each of these artisanal brooms is meticulously made from natural materials, and takes about around 7-14 days to create and ship.
