Anecdotal: Buxus, the hardest European wood, is used to make flutes, boxes and hafts. That animals will not touch it is a clue to its extreme toxicity. Only experienced practitioners should consider Buxus when exorcising the malevolent spirits that cause severe spiritual pain or the loss of control or identity. It is perhaps best included as a garden subject or ritual object instead as its fine properties are well tempered and manageable in these forms without it being dangerously cathartic to the spirit.
