The Best Sacred Arts Artisans

Foundations

M

iracles,

I have already shared a list of my favorite resources for herbs, roots, and plant allies and I thought it was time to share a few more of my favorite spiritual suppliers and Sacred Arts artisans.

Spiritual Supplies are commonly understood to be oils, incense, powders, perfumes, waters, washes, candles, altar goods, statuary, talismans, and the list goes on.

As always, I do not receive any kind of kickback or financial incentive for these recommendations, they are simply folks I know and have worked with and have found to provide consistent high-quality supplies.

First, the pride of place goes to the sacred arts artisans who are also graduates from the Miracle Tree Sessions. Obviously, I am partial to these fine folks as they are students of mine who have gone through the MTS and I know them all personally and adore them.

Three Cats and a Broom — Jen has all kinds of magical goodies from a Rue water that is delightful to a wonderful breast health formula.

Candlesmoke Chapel — Sara and Joseph offer a wide variety of spiritual supplies with a focus on oils and cleansing/blessing kits.

This is Jacquelyn Tierney’s site for bespoke, vintage, and one of a kind magical photography.

Paige Zaferiou — is a good witch who makes great tea. Sit down, have a cuppa, and throw down some cards!

Gatheress — Shelley Henry’s one of a kind magical goodies – her scent-based alchemy is beyond exquisite.

Aidan Wachter — makes incredible talismans of all kinds. Pure magic in metal.

Stone Angel Studios — Jennifer Kaufman creates one of a kind works of art, sculptures, and jewelry that honors the Sacred with every step you take.

Other incredible sources for magic:

Rosarium Blends — Wonderful oils, incenses, and alchemical concoctions.

Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab — specializing in oils and perfumes

Twilight Alchemy Lab — sister company of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab selling mostly oils with a Conjure/Hoodoo bent.

Bane Folk — Sarah does lovely work specializing in flying ointments

Lotus Wei — Flower Essences, sprays, perfumes

Green Man Essences — another excellent source for single note flower essences.

Big Dipper Wax Works — beeswax candles including pillars, tapers, and devotional glass candles.

Alchemy Works — Harold stocks oils, incense, seeds, medicinal, magical, and poisonous plants.

Apothecary’s Garden — Dan stocks fine frankincense, a number of different resins, and hard to find ingredients like Civet musk. He has incredible ethics in his business as well – something I very much admire.

Lucky Mojo Curio Company — specializing in hoodoo and conjure supplies.

My Favorite Resources for Herbs, Roots, and Plant Allies

Foundations

P

lants were some of my earliest medicine teachers. Learning how to sow and grow, harvest, and prepare herbs, roots, leaves, and bark for various medicinal and magical uses is something that was handed down to me grandfather to mother to daughter.

Nowadays I am fortunate to be able to grow my own plants and to responsibly wild harvest more for my own medical and magical recipes. For those who want to learn from plants the first step can be the most intimidating – there are SO many choices and where does one begin?

Here is my list of favorite books, sites, and people who love plants, roots, herbs, and all that is good and green. This is by no means comprehensive and it covers both the medical and magical uses of plants because I have worked with them in both contexts.
 

Start with what is already in your kitchen.
And then…
 
Books:

Witchcraft Medicine is my all-time favorite.

The Modern Herbal (vols 1 and 2) are classics for good reason.

Scott Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs is actually an industry standard.

Anything by Michael Moore

Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic is a classic by Catherine Yronwode.

The Encyclopedia of Aphrodisiacs: Psychoactive Substances for use in Sexual Practices is very thorough and fascinating.

And the Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants by the same team is also quite good to have on hand.

I also really love the book Braiding Sweetgrass for an exploration of what it means to be in right relationship to plants.

The Herbal Medic Book and Field Guide by Sam Coffman

Websites:

Alchemy Works is Harold Roth’s wonderful website and shop dedicated to green magic-making.

The work of Kiva Rose at Bear Medicine Herbals Holistic Services is one of my favorites.

Sophia Rose’s site La Abeja Herbs is lovely.

Rebecca’s Cauldrons and Crockpots are delightful.

Sarah always has good stuff on tap.

Matthew Wood is excellent.

Sam Coffman is local to me and one of my faves.

The Enchanted Healer – wonderful and comprehensive look at what it means to heal and live with plants.

Gatheress – I love, love, love everything that Shelley Henry does.

Rosarium Blends – wonderful blends of incense, potions, and oils
