I just got in my new order today from Mountain Rose Herbs , so I couldn't help but show off a few of my treasures. I usually hit up local junk shops, antique markets, and gardening stores for most of my Witch needs (I'm not a huge fan of mass produced, "Pagan" supplies) but when it comes to a few specialty items, I spend more to get them from really high-quality vendors. I'm trying to convert to using only 100% beeswax candles, for example, because they're better for the Earth, and for our health. Likewise, for herbs, I try to avoid "occult" shops (especially for herbs I'm going to be ingesting) and prefer to get them from herb specialists. Mountain Rose Herbs is my all-time favourite, because much of what they offer is wildcrafted, almost ALL of it is organic, and they have great customer service and amazing products. Today I got, in the mail, a bunch of their stuff. Essential oils of Lavender, Benzoin, and Eucalyptus. Dried Myrrh, Frankincense, and Fumitory. Some special "Lucid Dreams" tea and an eco-friendly tea-making product that sits in your mug to make one cup at a time. Oh, and finally, a great big bottle of Jojoba oil to be used as bases for magical and aromatherapy blends.
My mortar and pestle set, along with a few crystals and some miscellaneous supplies:
A few of my powdered and dried herbs, along with some sea salt:
Anyway, hope all 8 of you are well ;) It's still kind of chilly here, but my plants are growing well none the less, and hopefully we'll get the rain tomorrow they're predicting.
