A flute of natural magic created for healing intent.
Each of the branchlets spiraling up around this enchanting Tree Tobacco "Magic Flute" in Bass Bm has been set with a green aura crystal, looking very much like buds sprouting out of a living tree, allowing for the healing properties of quartz crystal to join in harmonious synergy with the prayerful spirit of Tobacco. Whenever this flute's air column vibrates in the expression of its sound, it also vibrates the crystals, creating through the piezoelectric effect a subtle electricity that amplifies the healing intent of the player.
Clearly and resonantly voiced to an A=440 concert/recording quality Bass Bm pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, this beautiful flute measures 28 1/2" in length, with a sound chamber slightly tapered from 1 3/8" at the true sound hole down to 1 1/8" at the south end. This very special flute is side blown from one of the hollowed out branchlets of the Tree Tobacco stalk. The finger holes are ergonomically offset, the spacing between centers from bottom to top: 1.50" - 1.50" - 1.50" - 1.375" As with all Dryad Flutes this flute was bored out intact and unsplit, honoring the strength and integrity of Tree Tobacco's (Nicotiana glauca) growth rings and natural character.
Deer leather lacing secures the bird to its nest. To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted with a cedar shoe, and a drain hole, covered by the lacing, has been designed into the air chamber. This Tree Tobacco flute has been well sealed, inside and out, so that neither of the alkaloids in Nicotiana glauca (nicotine and anabasine) come into contact with the player.
Tree Tobacco ( Nicotiana glauca ) is a species of wild tobacco native to South America that can grow to the size of a small tree. It has naturalized to other parts of the world, including here in Southern California where the Cahuilla Indians used its leaves "interchangeably with other tobacco species in hunting rituals and as a poultice to treat swellings, bruises, cuts, wounds, boils, sores, inflamed throat, and swollen glands." (source) Various types of tobacco have been used traditionally in native cultures throughout the Americas as offerings to the spirits, for planting, for gathering food, for healings and for the Native American Pipe Ceremony.
