Tree branch curtain rod

Hello, this is my first post and I did a search on this subject, but did not find anything.
So, I have a branch taken from a tree outside and would like to use it as a curtain/scarf rod for the interior of my home. I was wondering what I should do to treat it before it comes inside as a permanent piece. It has some loose bark on it and I was planning on trying to sand it, but I think it would loose some of its natural look if I did that. I would like to keep it as natural looking as possible (don't want to add anything glossy either). If anyone has done this before or you know what I should do, any advice is appreciated!!
Thanks in advance!!!!!

i've never heard that you need to do anything. i would let it sit for a while maybe in your garage & make sure there isn't anything living on or in it! but other than cleaning it a bit, i'd bring it on in. maybe check it every so often for sap or bugs? i think this project is on the same lines as bringing in cut flowers or grapevine wreaths.
