Herb Sampler Packs
When you're looking for "just a pinch" of something - enough to add to a mojo bag or honey jar but not so much that you have a ton of it left over.
I'm not trying to stock every herb under the sun or compete with companies that buy massive wholesale quantities to resell to the public. Rather, I focus on providing herbs that I source through my network (local or regional wherever possible) or that I grow or forage myself so that I know they've been harvested sustainably and without destructive, wasteful monoculture farming practices that deplete the soil and put the microclimate out of balance.
I process minimally in cases where I grow or forage the plant myself. Your herbs will be cleaned and carefully dried, but they will *not* be powdered, processed into small uniform chunks, "cut and sifted," or otherwise fooled with more than necessary to get the herb packaged appropriately. So this is about as close as you can get to walking into your own garden and harvesting your own plants if you don't actually *have* a garden and your own plants.
The actual weight and volume you receive will vary depending on the herb. What I've done instead of offering these by weight is to set this up so everything is the same price. That way it can be easily bundled and it's simple for you to select what you want and understand what it's going to cost.
So with green leafy things like blackberry leaves, the packet might be full. With resins or roots, it might not be even close to full, but in any case, there will definitely be enough to include in a spell jar or mojo bag or the like.
The bundle discount also applies to hoodoo powders, so you can combine small packets of powders and herb sample packs to get the discount if you don't need multiples of herb types.
Descriptions and Uses
Descriptions and usages are a work in progress, but you can see what we have so far at this page. Your herb packets will come with labels that include the name (common and Latin binomial) plus a brief description of spiritual uses.
About Our Herbs
While this is far too small of an operation to be certified organic or any of that stuff, we do not engage in large-scale, resource-heavy, monoculture farming practices here. So we try not to deplete the soil, use water irresponsibly, encourage lack of genome and biome diversity, deprive animals and insects of their habitations or migration paths, or generally act like assholes and bad stewards.
That means we do not spray our herbs or fertilize them with industrial chemicals - we use only organic fertilizers and natural biological pesticides on our land (stuff like natural neem oil or insecticidal soap that I also put on my food crops and that pose no risk for human contact).
However, these are not prepared in a commercial kitchen and are not packaged/sold as food items. My herbs are intended for spiritual use in incenses, oils, altar work, etc., not for human consumption.
LEGALESE: As required by law, all items are sold as curios to preserve and teach the traditions of folklore and popular religion. I don't sell anything I don't use myself, though, and quite a few customers over the years have sworn by my traditional formulas since I started selling them in 2002.
