Pentacle Symbol The Pentacle is an encircled Pentagram and is the absolute symbol of protection. It is considered to be representative of the five elements from which man is made, namely fire, air, water, earth and spirit. As a talisman, you can use it to cast open, protect and close a circle. It can be used in ceremonies and rituals as protection and spiritual control. When forged from silver, your link to the Moon and Psychic energies are at its strongest.

The Meaning of the Tree of Life A Connection to Everything: The Tree of Life commonly represents the interconnectedness of everything in the universe. It symbolizes togetherness and serves as a reminder that you are never alone or isolated, but rather that you are connected to the world. The Tree of Life symbol also represents the connection to one’s family and ancestors. It may also be used to represent peace, immortality and rebirth, individuality, growth, and strength.

THE WITCH'S BESOM
Witches are nearly always depicted with their trusty broomsticks. Brooms, also called besoms, have a long history in magic and continue to be used today. 

A witches besom is a ceremonial broom which is normally used to clean an area of unwanted energy in order to create a sacred space. The besom is a symbol of banishing, fertility, and cleansing. The witch’s broom can be used to cleanse your space, your home, and even a person or object of negative energy. In addition, the witch’s besom will function as a wand and brings prosperity and peace in one’s home.

It can also be used to protect the home against evil spirits. For marriage and other ceremonies, it can be used to symbolize the end of one thing and the beginning of the next. 
Its main purpose is to purify and protect and especially the circle where the casting area is before a ritual or magic spell is performed by sweeping to symbolize the removal of all the energies which are negative and building up the astral.

This tool has a very special place in Wicca.

How to Use the Witch’s Broom to Cleanse Your Home

To cleanse your home of negative energy, take your witch’s broom and start at the back door. Sweep each room, moving in a counter-clockwise fashion from room-to-room, then ending at the back door where you started. Sweep any debris out the back door OR dump your dustpan out the back door. To dump or sweep dirt out the front door invites negative energy back in

How to Cleanse Your Sacred Space with a Besom

Similar to how you cleanse your home with the witch’s broom, you can cleanse your sacred space before ritual. Instead of touching the bristles to the floor, sweep slightly above it and move in a counterclockwise, circular pattern. Counterclockwise “un-does” things AND clears negative energy. If you dedicate one besom to your magical practice, keep it near your altar.

Banishing at Birth
When you are expecting delivery of a baby in any room of a house, you can place a besom in the same vicinity. Upon delivery, use the besom to do some sweeping around the birth site. The besom is a potent symbol of fertility and doing this will also banish negative energies from the mother and the baby. Doing banishing as early as the day the child is born will benefit the him or her greatly.
Protection Against Bad Spells
If you think that someone is putting a hex on you, place a besom by the entry doorway of your house. This will prevent the black magic from penetrating your house and making its way to you. The besom is a very powerful amulet against black magick. Even if no one is using black magick on you, placing a besom by the door will also protect you and your home from evil spirits. Make sure to place the bristles up and let the shaft hit the floor.

To Protect Against Nightmares
Placing a besom under your bed at night while you sleep will help you sleep peacefully and undisturbed by bad dreams.

To Protect Your Bed When You’re Away
If you are traveling and will be gone for quite some time, place the besom with its bristles facing up on your bed to protect your bed from evil spirits while you are away.
Purifying and Cleansing Before Spell Casting
Use the besom to cleanse your ritual space before performing magick. The power of the besom is it has the ability to cleanse not just a physical space but also a mental and metaphysical space. It will get rid of negative energy buildup and astral build up. In covens, it is very common for a Priest or Priestess to walk clockwise while carrying a besom a little above the ground and perform a sweeping before casting a circle.

Channeling Your Spells
Placing a besom on your altar will help you a lot in your spell casting, especially in channeling and directing energy.

Speaking To The Departed
If you place a besom across the doorway, it will allow you to speak to those who have passed on. So long as the besom is there, they will feel free to communicate with you. So if you wish to talk to a friend or relative who has gone ahead, the besom will make that possible for you.

To Bring Rain
If you bring a besom outside and swing it over your head, this will bring rain for you and your crops.

Here are some tips on buying and using your besom:

Avoid buying a besom in May. As the saying goes, “Buy a besom in May, and you will sweep your friends away.”

Avoid sweeping after sunset. Superstition says this will chase away happiness.

Do not burn a besom.

Do not use the besom to sweep the outside of a house.

Do not bring old besoms into new homes. Leave the besom behind if you are moving.

Keep your witch’s broom bristles pointed up and next to the front door to welcome good fortune into the home.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! We do custom orders. Message me via etsy to discuss the details and work up a quote.

What's the quality of ingredients utilized?

We use 100% from Nature Ingredients. The majority of our herbs are organic and ethically wildcrafted and foraged locally. The rest are typically garden grown in our medicinal garden. We do outsource when needed and always choose quality, certified organic sources. We try to utilize our local small business owners but do have several things that are shipped from non local small family farms.

What's the lowdown on the butters?

We use Fair Trade, Raw and Organic Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Mango Butter. We use unrefined butters as this keeps all the vitamins, minerals and other natural properties of the butters intact. Our cocoa butter is non deodorized as the process of deodorizing (removing the naturally occurring soft cocoa scent) will destroy the antioxidants that naturally occur in the butter.

Where's the chemicals?

Free from chemicals! Well, sort of. Technically, Chemicals make up all matter. That means stating that we use no chemicals would be a lie as the scientific definition of chemical means that most everything (other than "energy" itself) IS a chemical. But we know what you mean and we ARE Free from Parabens, Pesticides, Petroleum, Phthalates, Sulfates, SLS, Artificial Colors, Synthetic Fragrances, and all the other yucky stuff.

Do you do animal testing?

My cockatoo wants nothing to do with my herbal goodness so all animals are safe. We only test on friends and family!

Any allergens?

Of course. There's a wide range of allergies and sensitivities out there and it's possible to be allergic to any ingredient used as well as cross allergies. Some of the butters and oils used can trigger nut allergies. We recommend messaging us directly for more info prior to buying if you're aware of any major allergens. Allergies can start at any stage and age so if an unsuspected allergy occurs when using a product, discontinue use immediately and consult your doctor.

How's it made?

Everything is handmade to order in small batches using fair trade, organic, raw and wildcrafted ingredients whenever possible. This ensures your batch is fresh and the highest quality. We put our heart and soul into our products and trust that the plants will offer their healing to all that they touch.

Smoke free and pet friendly?

Your products are artisan made and handcrafted in an earth conscious, plant loving, cruelty free, organic, always made with love and intention home. We are a smoke free "facility" and have one feathered friend; a cockatoo named Cotton. He's a 35 year old Goffin's cockatoo, a rescue, and recently lost his life mate to a tumor. He lives his best life upstairs, enjoys children's songs, fresh fruits and veggies, and Walker Texas ranger.

Uh oh! I'VE MOVED and my package was delivered to my old address. What can we do?

Please ensure that your profile is updated with your new address prior to placing any purchase orders. Additionally, make sure you go online or in person to the USPS and fill out a mail forwarding request. Once a shipping label has been created and a package is in the mail, we no longer have access to it.

We are suspending overseas shipments during the pandemic. Thank you for understanding.
Yes! However please understand that you are responsible for being aware of and paying your import taxes at time of pick up if your country requires them. We will not be responsible for refunding any orders or shipping fees due to complications surrounding this issue.

Your ingredient list is incomplete/ missing on your online listings

Unfortunately, I am bombarded constantly by other shops, herbalists, and companies for my personal and family recipes. It is impossible for me to know who is genuinely just curious and who intends to steal and recreate my offerings. Due to the fact that this has happened to me with direct competitors, I do not share my ingredient for nonallergic or personal aversion specific requests.
However, if you are a budding herbal ally and are interested in knowledge, I am tickled pink to be part of your learning process!

MY ORDER WAS LOST IN THE MAIL OR STOLEN OUT OF MY MAILBOX! NOW WHAT?

Please understand that once your order ships we are no longer in control of what happens to your items.
If an item was lost in the mail and you paid for priority shipping we will file a claim, as soon as the claim is accepted we will issue a full refund. Please note if a package is marked as delivered we can not file a claim.
If an item was lost in the mail and you selected ground shipping at checkout we can not file a claim. At this point in time we will submit a mail recovery request with the USPS.

I would like to return this for a full refund!

My Salve/Balm melted in the mail!

During the summer, warm months, or warm weather:
Please remove your balms from the mailbox or porch as soon as they are delivered. We can not control shipping times or the weather (although we wish we could) and can not refund, replace or accept returns of melted balms. If your balms melt, using a handheld mixer can be useful, and just place it in a cool, dark location, or to quickly reset them, pop them in the fridge for 5-15 minutes. The balm quality should not be affected. Also, the balms may whiten in cooler temps; just give a stir! This will also not affect the quality. Thank you for your understanding.

If I drink the psychic tea will I become psychic? How do the "magic teas" work? What results can I expect?

There's no strong psychotropic. It's more of a gentle assist in opening the third eye, Sahasrara, and Agnya. I'm an herbalist so I choose to work with a combination of metaphysical attributes and ayurvedic. Some herbs in the psychic blend have very mild sedative properties, mostly to aid in relaxing and accessing the energies. I like to say "they're herbs, not magic." These blends offered are to simply help you access and expand your own magical intent. They have historical, traditional, and mythological ties to specific powers, but wouldn't necessarily invoke powers you do not have or haven't yet cultivated. These tea blends are lovely mild alternatives of safe herbs to open the gateway to accessing what you desire.

My cauldron has wax residue on it! What's the deal?

Cast iron products are traditionally made by casting melted iron ore into a mold.
Lost-wax process, also called cire-perdue, is a method of metal casting in which a molten metal is poured into a mold that has been created by means of a wax model. The wax is then melted off. Some wax residue may remain, especially in crevices and design features. To remove any remaining wax, you can gently scrape it away with a tool or your fingernail. Clean with a damp cloth and dry well to prevent any rusting.
