HERBS, PLANTS & ROOTS
Herbs, roots, seeds, beans, nuts, and flowers have been used in magickal traditions throughout centuries. They are used in magickal and conjure oils, used as ingredients in mojo bags and gris gris, burned as incense, added to spiritual baths, mixed with earth and minerals, and powdered for adding to sachet powders and fixing candles. By dressing candles with oils and then rolling in powdered herbs, you are enhancing the power of your candle, making it that much more effective in your working.
This is a growing section of herbs and roots, consisting mostly of those that I am able to legally wildharvest, or they are from my organic gardens. Other herbs I carry are procured from fair trade and ethically harvested sources. They may look a little different from what people are accustomed to buying because they are fresh. I recently read a comment made by a leading competitor referring to mullein as an herb that is grey in color. If you look at the photos below, you will see that mullein is not a grey herb, nor is it uniform in color when it is fresh. If you are not used to seeing what fresh herbs look like, rest assured that what you will receive from me is only the freshest herbs possible, full of vibrant energy and ready to lend their spirits to you to assist in your magickal and educational pursuits.
