Answer a Witchcraft Question from Google #5

Bright Blessings Witches, Witchlings, and Witchlets! Welcome back to another installment of Printable Witchcraft’s Answer a Witchcraft Question from Google Series. It’s here that I, the Resident Witch of Printable Witchcraft and Candle Cross Coven, answer questions about witchcraft posed on the Internet. Without further ado, let’s get into it.

“Are there real Witch brooms available?”



I can only assume that the person who posed this question was referring to the brooms they’ve seen in TV and movies. You know…the ones being ridden…in the sky. Now I’ve already written about why Hollywood hates Witches, but this question lands in a completely different category: the reality that we live in versus the tired old tropes they keep pushing about witchcraft.



From my Magickal Tool Care Series: Brooms & Besoms post:

“The main magickal purpose of a besom is to cleanse and purify. Just as we use a household broom to sweep out dirt and debris, we use a magickal besom to clear our space of negative psychic energy. Having said that, in some American folk magick practices the same besom is used for both physical cleaning and spiritual cleansing.

A witch’s broom can also be utilized for cleansing people as well as spaces and objects. By passing the besom over the entirety of a person, unwanted energies can be vanquished. Also, a besom has the capability to function as a wand or way to direct your energy.”



If you are after a broom or besom to use as described above, then yes they are. You can even make your own! If you are looking for an unrealistic Hollywood broom like the Nimbus 2000 from Harry Potter that will fly you far above the hilltops and moutains and over rivers, lakes, and seas, then no.


Another day, another witchcraft question answered. This one felt a bit obvious, but I made the decision before starting this series here on Printable Witchcraft to approach every query with ‘there’s no such thing as a stupid question’ mentality. So there you have it, Witches. Be sure to come back every week where I answer burning witchcraft questions being posed on Google. And as always, Bright Blessings and Happy Crafting!
