ORIGINS/HISTORY
The acacia tree grows in a broad range of areas. They are seen growing in Ethiopia, India, Afghanistan, South Africa, Iran, Angolia, East Africa, Arabia, and the Nile. These areas are dry and semi-dry desert-like areas, so the trees act as shading for the workers, animals, and homes for the birds. The acacia tree dates back to ancient Egyptian times and has been used since 2650 BC for multiple things, which are listed in the article. Ancient Egyptians would use acacia tree wood to make many hand-made tools and necessities to make daily life a little easier. They made wheels, homes, tools, makeup, and ink. The Egyptians would make wreaths with acacia leaves for funerals. The Hebrews would plant the evergreen spring to mark a gravesite of a friend or family member that passed away. The Egyptian gods honor the acacia tree because they believed this is where the first known gods were born, right under the Heliopolis branches.

The only part of the acacia that can be eaten is the flower. You can even eat it raw right off the bush, which is highly recommended for people to try.

MEDICINAL
The tree gum was used to soak gauze for wrapping mummies. The Egyptians used it to tighten loose teeth and make antiseptics. Most of the herbalists in the United States hardly ever use acacia for the infestation of parasites, although it is used regularly in other countries. Several countries still use the acacia tree for medicinal purposes. The deep dark rustic brown bark is used for decoction. It is a base ingredient for cough drops for a sore throat and inflammation, mouth sores such as mouth ulcers, binding skin back together at the tissues, and soothe the tender tissue in the mouth. Other countries still use the acacia tree for medicinal purposes. The majority of people in the US do not use herbal remedies anymore. The acacia pods, leaves, and flowers are used to make a lotion to be used on the skin to remove worms from under the skin, stop bleeding, stop coughing up blood, and tighten up mucous membranes. Witch hazel can do the same thing for mucous membranes. The flowers and leaves of the acacia tree are made into a sedative.

The acacia tree wood was used in magickal workings and reminded me a little of Palo Santo sticks. It is used for protection, spiritual and psychic enhancements, money, abundance, platonic love, and friendships.
This particular type of wood is a little off the beaten path of things. Not many wands are made from the acacia tree. Acacia wood is used to create a very different kind of wand. It is a very special type of wand. The acacia wand is a tricky wand to work with due to the acacia wood. This wand rarely produces any magick for its witchy owner. The acacia tree wand is very stubborn, and it is hard to get it to do anything. Once you can work with your wand, you have the potential to become a spiritual leader, according to folklore. If you desire, design a wand from the acacia branch or use a part of the root to strengthen it. Make the wand of your liking by your artistic techniques, or whittle and carve a special design in the root or branch to create the wand. It is said to bring strong spiritual leadership. The acacia wand is said to increase confidence, integrity, and authority. Of course, you’ll need to charge your wand in the sun since the sun is an element of the acacia tree.

The wand holds its best effects for the most gifted and powerful witches. With the acacia tree having a sensitive nature, it is hard to put it in the right hands of any witch, sorcerer, or wizard if they are not strong enough to satisfy the temper of the acacia wand. When paired well, the acacia wand will connect well for all powers. The acacia is usually underestimated due to the odd temperamental characteristics it has. Suppose you have any acacia wood and wish to bring forth its natural powers to work with you. In that case, you can use the acacia leaves blessed with holy water and place them on your acacia wood or wand if you chose to consecrate/bless the acacia. Put some even place some of the acacia leaves on your altar to bless your altar too.

You can also burn it on a charcoal disc as an altar offering. When using the acacia gum/sap as in incense, it is referred to as resin.

ITEMS NEEDED FOR SPELL

A cauldron to put the charcoal disc into when you light the disc, so you dont burn your hands if you dont have a pair of tongs to hold it with and a blue and white candle. Once you light the disc, place the preferred part of the acacia and mugwort on the charcoal disc, it will start smoking immediately; light the white candle first, then light your blue candle second and sprinkle some of the acacia and mugwort on it. Then say this spell.
