But this year I have my own wand, selected by Mr. Ollivander just for me!
|Wood type: olive|
Length: 11 inches
Core: Phoenix Feather
Mr. Ollivander says this about Olive wands:
Olive wands tend to choose the witch or wizard who possess above average intelligence, not to mention often an overactive imagination. Olive wands are also a favorite of healers and are especially good not only for healing but also for protective spells. Many believe the bearers of Olive wands to be good at decision making - but this is not necessarily so. The owner of an olive wand may be decisive but that does not mean their decisions are the right ones. On the other side of the coin they may be so busy worrying about what is right that they are unable to ever reach a conclusion.And this about the Phoenix feather core:
Olive's personality is peaceful
The Phoenix Feather comes from the tail feathers of a Phoenix, and is especially good with fire or defensive magic, as well as healing magic. This may be due largely to the healing properties Phoenixes have.I tend to burn myself a lot, when I'm baking or making glass beads, so I hope this wand will be good for healing those burns!
P.S. There was a lovely surprise in my mailbox today, a leftover from HSKS5! Read all about it on my Muggle Blog.
