Magic Oils- Sacred Lotus Alchemy Works is a metaphysical supply shop for spiritual seekers of all types and for those who simply enjoy unique and beautiful plants, natural fragrances, and hand-compounded incenses and oils. Founded in 2000, we have always been a small, owner-operated business, treating every item we sell with care and attention. Many of our products have traditionally played a role in ancient or modern Earth-based spirituality and magic/k, with a primary focus on western systems of witchcraft and sorcery. Whether you are a Witch, Magickian, Kabbalist, pagan, or practitioner of one of the many mystical traditions that span our globe, we trust that you will find something of interest here.

Mandrake root grown by Teth with AW seeds We make 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. As active spiritual practitioners ourselves, we also understand the importance of using quality, ethically sourced materials. We take pride in what we sell and are committed to using only natural ingredients, meaning that our ritually handcrafted products contain no fragrance oils, dyes, chemical extenders like DPG, accelerants, petroleum-based oils or waxes, fillers, or artificially produced components of any sort. They also don't contain parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, or other fabricated compounds often found in synthetic blends. We grow or wild harvest some of the seeds that we sell, and we take great care when choosing suppliers for the seeds and botanical ingredients that we do not grow or gather.

Seed Packets and Collections We love the natural world and believe in our innate interconnectedness with the other-than-human inhabitants of this planet. The enchanting aromas of plants and fungi, which co-evolved with animal life, can activate psycho-physical processes that promote self-healing, well-being, and a deeper connection with nature and the currents of the unseen. Botanical fragrances also connect us to the lineage of magic workers, artisans, healers, etc. whose wortcunning and craft has been passed down for millennia. As animal lovers, most of our products are vegan friendly. Although the Greek Magical Papyri and other ancient magical formulae reference animal parts such as bat's wing, goat's foot, dove's blood, etc., most of these do not refer to actual animal parts but instead are herbal codes used to prevent the majority from accessing secret knowledge. As such, the only animal products we use are honey, beeswax, and (very rarely) butter absolute. 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.

Alchemy Works does not offer readings, nor do we sell spells, healings, or any other workings. Our website offers a wealth of information designed to assist you in your own spiritual practice, ranging from folklore to planetary correspondences. We encourage you to experiment with creating your own oils, incense, and other ritual formulations, and we offer our herbs, resins, and essential oils for this purpose. Although our website provides examples of how our products may be used in Witchcraft, Magic, or other spiritual paths (or how they may have been used historically), we do not offer metaphysical outcomes. Though we take great pride in formulating our magic oils, incenses, and other supplies, ultimately it is up to you to do the work.

Red SandalwoodIn an attention economy where distraction drives revenue, we like to think of our site as a type of resistance. Yes, it's old and clunky with lots of text—some of our patrons kindly call it "retro"—but it is also an invitation to slow down and get in touch with what inspires you. We hope that this site will conjure up the dimly lit occult shop on the corner, or a beloved used bookstore piled high with dust and potential. 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 hope it will do the same for you. Top

International Orders

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


Most orders ship within four business days (or sooner) but some can take up to two weeks. We do not offer same-day or express shipping. Our handcrafted items are formulated under specific conditions, such as planetary hours, moon phases, etc. Many of our oils and incenses require lengthy periods to produce. For example, the herbs and resins in Sacred Madjet Oil steep for a philosophical month. Similarly, we follow ancient recipes to craft Edfu Kyphi and our other kyphi incenses, adding ingredients in a specific order over the course of days or weeks. If you require your order by a specific date, please contact us and we'll see what we can do.

Shipping prices, which are based on the size and number of items purchased, include handling and the cost of packaging materials. We use biodegradable and recycled materials as much as possible, including 100% recycled tissue and printer paper, recyclable tape and padded envelopes, and plant-based plastic to wrap our oils. All other plastic packaging is on its second use.

Domestic orders ship via United States Postal Service (USPS) Priority Mail, unless you only order seeds, which gives you a choice between ground advantage and priority. All orders over $100 receive free priority shipping. Purchases under $100 using a free shipping code will be sent by ground advantage. Top

International orders ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS) or the United Parcel Service (UPS). We offer standard or expedited shipping and reserve the right to select either carrier based on the speediest estimated delivery. Alchemy Works is no longer able to sell seeds to customers outside of the United States and Canada. Please review our International Shipping Policies for more information about shipping restrictions, customs documentation, etc. Top

Cancellations, Refunds & Returns, Out-of-Stock Items

If you need to cancel your order, please contact us by email or phone (not social media) and we will do our best to accommodate you. If your order has already shipped, it cannot be canceled.

If you are dissatisfied with anything you purchase from Alchemy Works, please
contact us by phone or email (not social media) within seven days of receiving your order. We strive to ensure that each customer is fully satisfied and will work with you to find a solution, whether that is issuing a refund, sending a replacement, exchanging an item, or another agreed-upon arrangement. Please note that any returns or exchanges 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 norm in the trade, nor can we refund shipping costs.

If we are out of an item you ordered, typically we will ship the other items, then give you a choice between a refund or receiving the out-of-stock item later. If multiple items are unavailable, we will contact you via email to determine how to proceed.

Privacy, Security & Cookies

We will never sell or give away your personal information. You will not receive any unsolicited mailings or be subscribed to any email lists. Our shopping cart function uses cookies to keep track of what is in your cart (so the items will still be there if you leave our site and come back later) but we do not collect any information about you, nor do we track your movements.
