The Witchery Oracle // Based on the 36-card Petite Lenormand Cartomancy, a German creation that, in 1845, appropriated the name of the now-dead but still-famous card reader, Mlle. Lenormand. Comes complete with 36 oracle cards, 4 info cards, a velvet bag, & a protective box. This deck was made with love, all photographs were taken by The Witch, with the exception of The Rider card, which features a digital composite of her photos and the Luis Ricardo Falero public domain painting, Festival of the Witches.
Sage // Traditional incense of ceremonial offering, cleansing, purification, and protection. Sage is also believed to help alleviate sorrow of the death of a loved one. While desert white sage is the strain of sage generally reached for for spiritual cleansing needs, common sage works just as well. When burned sage is a powerful spiritual cleanser that not only pushes out negative energies, but also provides a protective boundary. It has long been used in healing. An old proverb says “why should a man die who has sage in his garden?”. It was used in the Middle Ages to treat fevers, liver disease and epilepsy.
When you are finished smudging, turn upside down and tap out in a fire proof bowl.
Rose Quartz // Opens eyes to physical beauty and is also known as the “Stone of Gentle Love” and the “Venus Stone”. Alleged to help heal a broken heart, it also restores people of their youthful persona and opens the heart for self-love and inner peace. Protects against intrusion and others anger or spite. Protects from nightmares. Good for fertility magick. Can be used in peace magick for war torn areas of the earth.
Palo Santo Spray // Has been used for thousands of years by Shamans and Healers among the Inca population. This “Holy Wood” is a part of their ceremonies and healing rituals. It provides energetic protection, and removes bad energies. Spray before leaving the house to protect yourself from oogies. Handcrafted by The Witch this spray is absolutely dreamy and a little goes a long way. The wood obtained by the Witch has been collected off the ground and not harvested. No trees were hurt.
