I just thought I'd check in with a few updates about the apothecary and things that are happening here.
As I write today, it's a beautiful, warm, semi-sunny Saturday in the Northeast Kingdom and I'm so grateful for it! The weather this Spring (?) has been something else, hasn't it?
At long last though, the herb gardens are finally planted, and the perennial herbs have sprung back to life! Blooms and blossoms, bees and butterflies are beginning to appear everywhere. Birds are busily building nests or tending to chicks that have already been born. The Starlings that have nested in my rafters for years are seen multiple times daily carrying nesting materials to and fro, and soon I'll be treated to the plaintiff cries of babies who are convinced every moment of the day that they are absolutely on the verge of perishing from starvation!! It's a lovely time of year and I hope you're enjoying it too!
The Apothecary is now fully open two days, and one evening per week, and is available at other times by appointment only. If you'd like to make an appointment, visit my website.
Regular business hours are as follows- Tues.-11AM-3PM, Thurs.4-8PM, Sat.-11AM-4PM. Drop in, take a look around, and pick up your small, free gift just for popping in!
Many new tinctures have been added recently for you to choose from! Several more are processing right now. If you need help choosing the best tincture(s) for you, a brief in store consult is available for a nominal fee. Herbalism is a wee bit more complicated now than it was generations ago when very few people were using any type of pharmaceutical medications. A consult, whether a brief in store, or a full 90 min-2 hour consult is always a good idea to make sure we're choosing the best remedies & products for your individual needs. Full consultations are available in person at the Apothecary, or online via Zoom Meeting.
Also expanded upon are the oils, salves, sprays, roll-ons, and facial & body care products section. All are made with only pure, natural, organic or wildcrafted herbs and oils. Most of the oils used in my salves were from plants grown right here by yours truly. All the roll-ons and sprays also contain Reiki infused crystals and gemstones to increase their healing energy.
In addition to everything else that has been added, I am pleased to announce that the Apothecary is now offering bulk, dried herbs for sale! I currently have in stock almost 60 organic or wildcrafted herbs for you to choose from. So for those who are looking to make their own tea blends, try their hand at homemade tincture, or salves I have the most popular herbs you may be looking for. All are pre-packaged and measured in re-sealable bags. Prices vary depending on the herb. Many of these are also commonly used in spiritual practices as well. (Shamanism, Witchcraft, Spellwork, Mediation, etc.) Stop in if your local, or send me a message and see if I have what you may need in stock.
For my Wiccan, Pagan, or otherwise witchy friends, the section for ritual and ceremonial supplies is also growing! In stock now are smudge blends, spell candles, Full Moon oils, fragrance oils, Sacred Sage, Nag Champa candles, incense, and a small selection of Tarot/Oracle cards. I will be adding more items very soon as I am headed to Arizona on a buying trip within the next week! Coming soon- Crystals, Gemstones, Jewelry, and pendulums. I am excited to see what I end up coming home with for you!
I am also planning some online classes soon on various topics such as making medicinal tinctures, and salves at home, How to Use Pendulums for Divination, and more! I'll be sure to keep you posted. If you follow me on Facebook on my Green Witch Apothecary page, updates are usually posted there first as well as on Instagram. Many instructional videos are already posted on my YouTube channel.
I am wishing you a beautiful Springtime and all the joy, rebirth, and new life that comes with it! Try to spend time outside connecting with Nature, and your own inner being, and Higher Self. You'll be glad you did!
Until next time,
