What is a Besom: a Ceremonial Broom


By Morningbird

A besom is a ceremonial broom. It is used to clear an area of unwanted energy, to establish sacred space and for blessing and protecting the home.

It is also used in marriage and other ceremonies to symbolize the end of one thing and the beginning of another.
