Hello There

My thoughts about Traditional Witchcraft, Wicca, cooking, gardening, and anything else that catches my fancy.

More From The Witch's Supply Cabinet

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.

Some oils:

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.


  1. Utterly gorgeous, as always! I really must look into Mountain Rose Herbs. The supply at occult shops is...well....bleh.

  2. Thanks, Veles. Here's the link: http://www.mountainroseherbs.com/. I warn you, though, don't go to that site if you're trying not to spend money; while their prices are really good, they have SO much good stuff that it's easy to end up making huge orders. Their selection of herbs and essential oils is awesome, as are their teas. Also, on Youtube, they have dozens of "how to" videos that teach you how to make you own lip balm/salve/tinctures.

    I know it sounds like I must work for them, but I really don't! I just love their stuff.

  3. I absolutely LOVE Mountian Rose! I signed up to receive their catalog in the mail and OMGoddess! it has so many helpful hints and recipies on how to use the awesomeness that is Mountain Rose. Love it!
