Ash is known as the tree of strength of purpose, and wisdom. Ash sometimes represents the power which resides in water. To ward off evil, hang a staff carved of ash over your doorpost. Healing wands and brooms can be made from the wood, and poppets can be carved from the roots. Place ash leaves beneath your pillow to induce psychic dreams. Ash leaves can also be carried for general good fortune.
The most amazing Ash tree, on the banks of the river Derwent in Cockermouth, Cumbria, UK. It is opposite the House where the poet Wordsworth and his sister grew up, and it would hve been an ancient tree even back then!
