Who isn’t entranced by an outpost specializing in tinctures + elixirs in little black medicinal bottles; dry herbs in glass jars; crystals of every shape + color; magic wands made of gilded bamboo; exotic teas + remedies defending the heart/ soul/ throat/ anxiety/ twitchy eye and books on healing/ reinventing/ spells???
I certainly am.
I stumbled upon Scarlet Sage Herb Co. a while ago, when I was on the hunt for bundled white sage… the kind that protects + wards off every manner of bad spirit when smudged around the perimeter of your sacred dwelling. Sage bundles are the backbone of so many of my special-delivery care packages, such as: the heartbreak kit; the housewarming kit; the lucky you kit; the birthday kit, and lastly the thankyouthankyouthankyou kit.
After calling upon many of the usual suspects whom I thought would carry bundled sage– and don’t– someone tipped me off to a little “witchy store” at the end of Valencia street. Just the thought of a “witchy store” delighted me beyond. But nothing compared to what I saw in person and/or the endless possibilities/ inspiration/ learning had.
For inspiration, check out the heartbreak kit– click here.
