The spiral is one of the oldest symbols found on the planet. It seems that on at least 5 continents, the cultures who lived there have chosen the spiral to represent a number of concepts;
Creation, Growth, Expansion, Building,
Time, Cycles, Infinity
Retraction, Going within, Journeying, Pathways, Labyrinth and Mandala
Walking the labyrinth or drawing a mandala, when fully connected to the experience, is a consciousness expanding exercise, just like the Whirling Dervishes of Konya,Turkey.
At My Kitchen Wand, with a tagline like “stirring magic into every meal”, what better symbol than a spiral? That is, after all, the action of stirring, a micro expression of the ongoing expanding of the universe.
Enchanting creation is exactly what a kitchen witch does by blessing with healing and love, the ingredients for the dish being created.
If that sounds a little woo woo to you, check out this experiment done with chocolate at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. http://noetic.org/library/publication-scholarly-papers/effects-intentionally-enhanced-chocolate-mood/
Each individually handcrafted 13 inch beech wood spoon comes via a protected, managed forest in Europe. Once in Canada, they are charmed with a laser engraver and dipped in a bath of grape seed oil and melted beeswax which brings out the grain and deepens the tone of the wood. Washing in warm water, by hand, and the occasional wipe with a food safe oil will help extend the life of a Kitchen Wand. The image is burned into the wood and will not “come off”. Over time though, as the patina of use develops, the image and the engraving on the handle “My Kitchen Wand” may soften.
The description of this design is easily accessible to customers through an information only webpage on the Kitchen Wand tag.
