We make all of our magic oils, incenses, inks, and essences by hand within our consecrated ritual space. We pay attention to seasonal, planetary, astrological, and other metaphysical influences, as well as to our own states of mind while we are preparing them. We understand that intention is a crucial component of practice, so tending to our own spiritual lives is also an integral part of our work. The formulations you will find here are based upon personal recipes or on historically accurate formulae that have been gathered through researching works like the Ebers papyrus or Dioscorides' Materia Medica. We grow or wild harvest some of the seeds that we offer, and we take great care when choosing suppliers for those that we do not grow or gather ourselves.
As active spiritual practitioners ourselves, we understand the importance of using quality, ethically sourced materials. We take great pride in what we sell and are committed to offering only natural products that are free of synthetics--meaning that our magic oils, essences, and inks contain no dyes, no synthetic fragrances, no chemical extenders like DPG, and no mineral oil. Our incenses use ingredients that we have grown and/or personally gathered, or that we source from suppliers that work to provide sustainably grown, high quality, natural and/or organic botanical ingredients. Our products are offered for use in spiritual, ritual, meditative, and magical practices, not for medicinal purposes.
Alchemy Works does not offer readings, nor do we sell spells, healings, or any other workings. Our site has been designed to provide you with information, supplies, and tools that can assist in your own practice. We encourage you to experiment with creating your own blends and ritual formulations, and we offer our herbs, resins, and essential oils for this purpose. Though we take great pride in formulating our magic oils, incenses, and other supplies, ultimately it is up to you to do the work. Our website offers a wealth of information including folklore, magical and ritual uses of herbs, instructions for growing a magical garden, tips on incense-making, which plants are linked to which planets or aspects of the divine, and more. The Resources links can show you paths to further develop your wortcunning.
In an "attention economy" like ours, where distraction drives revenue (every click is a fresh opportunity to advertise) we like to think of our site as a type of resistance. Yes it's old and cluncky with a lot of text--some of our patrons kindly call it "retro"--but it is also an opportunity to slow down, stay a while, and get in touch with what inspires you. We invite you to to treat this site as a journey back to simpler times, to the dimly-lit occult shop on the corner where you felt seen and you belonged, or a beloved used bookstore piled high with dust and potential. If you can't find something, try the search functionality or peruse the index pages (accessible from green buttons at the top of each screen). Though it is old, Alchemy-Works.com is a treasure trove of valuable information that has aided many a practitioner to deepen along their own unique path (whether or not they made a purchase!). We sincerely hope it will do the same for you.

Canceling An Order

We do ship internationally, however, there are over 70 countries on our Prohibited Shipping List, as well as several other countries to which we cannot sell seeds and/ or dried herbs. These shipping restrictions are in place for a variety of reasons including trade embargos, high shipping prices, customs restrictions, unreliable postal systems, etc. Before placing your international order, please review our International Shipping Policies. Top
We ship all of our orders within two weeks, though most orders go out within 5 business days. If you need an order sooner, call or email to let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. We do not offer same-day or express shipping, since many of our items are made to order and require specific conditions to formulate. Shipping prices
include handling and the cost of packaging materials. We do our best to use biodegradable and recycled materials as much as
possible. Our tissue paper is made of 100% recycled materials and all plastic packaging is on its second use. The return address on your package reads "Alchemy Works" with our PO Box.
All domestic orders ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS) Priority Mail, which includes tracking and a delivery confirmation. Seed shipping is a flat rate, whether you buy one pack of seeds or 100. All domestic orders over $150 receive free shipping. Top
All international orders ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS) or the United Parcel Service (UPS); Alchemy Works reserves the right to select the carrier. You may choose from standard or expedited shipping. Tracking for international orders is only guaranteed for expedited shipping; however, we do obtain a proof of shipment for all standard orders. Please review our International Shipping Policies before placing your order.

Refund & Return PolicyIf anything you buy from Alchemy Works is problematic, please contact us within seven days of receiving your order. It is our sincere intent that each of our customers is fully satisfied with their purchase and we will work with you to find a solution, whether that is issuing a full refund for an item that is returned with authorization, or sending a replacement. All returns must be received within 30 days of the return authorization and must be in saleable condition (or meet whatever other specific criteria we have mutually agreed upon). We cannot accept any returns on oils, as is the the norm in the trade, nor can we refund shipping costs. Top
If we are out of an item, we will send you a refund and it will not be sent later (backordered) unless you agree beforehand. We try to keep up with what is currently available and note when something is out of stock, however, with over 500 products to keep track of sometimes we miss something. Top
If you are looking for a custom oil or incense, please reach out to us. Please note that custom oils and incenses take time to make and formulate, so if you are seeking something for a particular event or a time-sensitive ritual, we suggest that you contact us at least a month prior to when you need it. Pricing on special orders is negotiated on a case by case basis. Several of our incenses and magic oils began as special orders and are now part of our regular product line, so please don't hesitate to ask for something. Top
We include a sample with every order we ship. Additional samples or other items are also included with orders over $50. If you would like to try something in particular, make a note of it in the box on the order form, and we will do our best to accommodate your request. We cannot send essential oils as samples. Top
