The following herbs and resins have historically played a role in Paganism,
traditional witchcraft, Wicca, and ceremonial magick. The resins, because they come from plants, have a depth of scent and a connection to life and the Earth that fragrances made from petrochemicals can never have. Click on the
planet/Element to find out about the herb or resin's planetary correspondence
and how it fits with particular deities, stones, times, magickal work,
and so forth.
These magick herbs and resins come in waxed glassine bags (with the exception of Balsam of Peru and Storax, which come in glass vials). If an herb or resin has a particularly strong aroma, we will package it
inside plastic as well as the waxed bag. These waxed bags are
more sustainable than our previous packaging and are also resealable (using the herb sticker). Because the sticker peels off easily, you can transfer it to a glass jar or whatever longterm storage solution you prefer.
Enjoy exploring what plants have to teach us, but
respect Gaia's power. Just because it's an herb or natural resin doesn't mean it can't
hurt you; there are a number of baneful plants on this list.
All herbs and resins sold by Alchemy Works are offered for use
in spiritual, ritual, meditative and magickal practices, not for medicinal purposes.
