These are functional hand brooms made from Springbok horn (sourced from skulls of Springboks) handle with bulky, broom stitched in a sweeper or besom. All one of a kind, these are inted for ritual or altar use and are luxurious to sweep with.
As a Talisman, we added some elements inside: snake vertebrae, gem corn, Grandfather sage (mugwort), sweetgrass, honeycomb, and black thorn spikes. It emanates energy, feels nice in your hand, and is also a functional broom. These ingredients together create a protective, energetic shifting, cleansing, and sacred experience.
They are made from a non-toxic dye and we dye them ourselves, so you can also request a custom color if we have it in-stock.
**We do not use preservatives in the dye, so fading can occur if left in sunlight. Bleeding can occur if they get too wet.
Since this is a natural material you may notice color variations in the dyes, especially black. This is normal for natural, non-toxic dyes and the natural dyeing process.
*These are handmade at Queen Meb.
One of my ancestors is a Lenape indigenous woman who was known to travel around, sell brooms, linens, tell fortunes, and heal people with herbs. This is something that has been on repeat in the back of my mind.
I have struggled to get brooms in when the demand is up at the store and I have chosen to honor my ancestors by creating a series of brooms in my own design inspired by my multi-influenced background.
