Use oak in rituals and spellwork involving protection, health, money, healing, potency, fertility and luck.
Since the oak was a source of food for early settlers in Britain as wellas Europe, it came to be revered and worshipped far back into prehistory. The Druids (traditionally) would not meet for rituals unless an oak was present, and the very word ‘oak’ and ‘Druid” some say, are related. Religious idols were fashioned from oak wood, and Witches often danced beneath the tree.
A tree as long-lived and strong as the oak naturally offers magical protection. Carrying any piece of oak is said to draw good luck.
