An interesting online store with any number of traditional herbs, incenses, oils, ointments and artwork all handmade by the proprietess. The witch who runs the shop grows many of the herbs herself and offers things that can be hard to come by in a city. She also makes kyphi incense and a wonder one she calls Bee Oracle, which is amazing. I actually found this woman's blog through Gemma Gary's Cornish Witchcraft site- I guess she's a fan or a friend. :) For you Canadians out there, this is a home-grown venture located in Vancouver. She ships internationally, too.

I think I randomly wandered over to her site somehow one time while I was researching something...I didn't linger long back then, but I'm looking through some of the stuff now and she has quite a nice selection! Thanks for sharing!

I haven't purchased anything from there yet, but planning too soon, when the shop gets back up again! Some really nice stuff on there for a trad witch.:smile:

Etsy is a great site. Unfortunately, when I looked they are on vacation. I posted my favorite botanica under "shoppes", but I will certainly check back with forest grove when they are back from vacation. Thanks.

Wanted to bump this because I just got some great incense and flying ointment from her. Every thing was packaged nicely and shipped quickly.

Curious if anyone has bought anything from her? I read her blog and have been wanting to try one of her flying ointments along with purchasing some of her amazing looking incense.

I have not ordered from her, but my understanding is her things are quite well-liked from what I had read. She used to be a member here back when she had more time on her hands (went under the name of Lorilar or something similar if I remember correctly)... anyway, her posts were quite good. :-)

Took the plunge and ordered some of her Witches Ointment (perfect for my strong attachment to wormwood) and found my package awaiting me about ten days after ordering. The ointment smelled delightful and I had some excellent experiences while reading my cards and using it.
Definitely going back for more goods from her.

Cannot find her shop online or on Facebook, and the link does not seem to work. Is this botanica still in business? All this talking up, I hope I am merely being stupid and unable to find it...

Interesting shop. It looks like she's only selling some ointments right now. I think it would be terribly expensive to get it shipped to the Netherlands, though. :sad:

If not expensive, slow. It took a month for me to receive a small item. I'm happy with it, tho. I enjoy her site and artwork, too. I think it was mentioned that she was once a member here.
