I know of several sites that offer seeds and some offer the items themselves.  I also may have some available personally depending on how my grow season is going.  However, to be on the responsible side, I think I would need to get to know someone on here rather well before I would offer them website information (easy enough to find on your own if you're dead set on it) or information about my available wares (likely for a trade of some sort).  If you have any questions and/or would like any information PM me.  Some baneful herbs are illegal in certain localities, for example  Atropa belladonna is illegal in Louisiana and Datura stramonium is illegal in Connecticut but you can get around this by substituting Scopolia carniolica and other less cold-hardy datura species.

 

I'd also like to add that there's no such thing as a "black thumb" ...all it takes is a little bit of know-how ;)

 

also, you can use cold stratification without doing water changes in a fridge, just put them in the freezer for a month or two.  If they're coming straight from the fruit you'll want to be sure that the seeds are completely dry before you freeze them otherwise it will destroy the embryonic membranes giving you useless seeds that you just froze for a month+.  Soaking them tends to speed up the process because it eliminates anti-germination chemicals in the seed hulls but it's not completely necessary.  With tropical varieties cold stratification can be helpful but I've found it can be hit and miss.  Tropical nightshades are very very finnicky about either being too wet or too dry.

This tread is about shops not the herbs themselves, but since this question is here I will answer ( as best I can) here.

I think that Jezabel root is the hoodoo name for a rhizome of a type of iris that grows in Luiziana.
It is supposedly very similar to orris root (from another type of iris) in species and in use.

Be careful if you order it online as most sources do not state what plant they took the rhizome from and it is often mixed up with other kinds of iris.
