Delicate, discreet necklace features a tiny sterling silver St. Therese of Lisieux medal, double-sided, cast new from an antique Italian original that dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. This dainty charm is about 9mm across.

Paired with a sterling silver key charm surmounted with a crown to recall St. Peter's keys to heaven, the medal hangs from a 16" sterling silver chain. This piece has acquired some patina since I made it, which I currently have left alone, because I prefer some patina to a totally shiny sterling silver piece of jewelry. But please let me know your preference when checking out - I'll happily polish it back to shiny for you, or I'll happily send it along as is looking vintage and well-loved.

St. Therese, known affectionately by her many devotees as the Little Flower, made love the central tenet of her spiritual practice and her life. You could essentially call her the patron saint of hidden sacrifices. She is petitioned by those who need love and compassion to be shown to them as well as those who need to better show love and compassion in their lives.

She wrote, "I prefer the monotony of obscure sacrifice to all ecstasies. To pick up a pin for love can convert a soul."

So those who spend much time caring for others, even knowing much of their work and devoted labor will go unrecognized and unappreciated, often find an ally and a comfort in St. Therese and her quiet life of determined service and hidden sacrifice. (This would be pretty much every mother I've ever met and anyone who keenly feels the inequity of the division of labor in their living situation.)

All spiritual and devotional pieces are made with care and intent with respect to traditional origins, lore, and practices, all of which I'm happy to answer questions about.

SHIPPING/HANDLING: With everything going on globally right now plus our location in a very out-of-the-way rural area at the edge of the county a few minutes from the state line, I don't want to promise that I can ship more often than once a week. At least until things settle a bit, then, please allow 5 business days handling time just to be on the safe side.


SHIPPING / HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days and will be longer for large and/or custom orders. Why? Two reasons.

One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient, and it takes a few days for more to arrive. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.

Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.

HANDLING TIMES: Please note published handling times, which start at 5 business days minimum and will be longer for custom-finished items, large orders, and some specialty/extra strength formulas. You can expect a 10-day handling time for an order with one custom item, and longer than that if the order contains multiple custom items. Why? Two reasons:
One, I make all my formulas in tiny batches, decanting and praying over every oil order as it comes in, for instance. It's not a matter of just grabbing a bottle off a shelf and popping it into an envelope. And I stock only what I know I can use within a certain shelf life. That means I can have unexpected runs on formulas that use up my stock of an ingredient and it takes a few days for more to arrive, or I need to go to back of our acreage and dig up a certain root to go in your custom spell kit. The payoff for your patience is that you get fresh blends and fresh products, made by hand the old fashioned way, by a traditional rootworker with 35 years of experience.
Two, I live in the middle of nowhere and I have to expect time-sucking delays as par for the course, like the internet going down 'cause a cow broke the line, stuff like that.
USAGE: Oils are for prayer and ritual use; they are not cosmetics or perfumes. While some customers do use some dressing oils as anointing oils (which is not the same thing as wearing a perfume or cologne), they are careful to do a skin test first, since they know that all-natural does not equal hypoallergenic. If you need suggestions on how to use condition and anointing oils in the conjure tradition, see the Education link up top.
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.
