Our Witch 101 Kit has some basic tools that any witch would find useful. It's a great little kit for those who are new to the craft or just want to be curious. But it's also useful for an experienced witch who just needs a little restock!
This kit includes:
- two sticks of palo santo
- one hand-wrapped sage bundle from our medicinal garden
- a small bell (the bells are either silver or brass and come in various shapes)
- tumbled amethyst
- tumbled crackle quartz
- tumbled rose quartz
- a small wooden box with celestial inlayed design
Full Disclosure about Sage:
As many are aware, white sage is currently over-harvested. Also, white sage is used by many indigenous cultures in holy smudging ceremonies; those who attempt to use white sage in this way who have no connection to the culture of indigenous peoples are participating in cultural appropriation. We know this, and try our best to honor these two facts.
We have sourced some white sage bundles through a company that advertises its respect towards both the environment and the people who have harvested it, and we hope that they are honest in that advertisement. However, in order make sure that we do not cause harm, we will not be ordering any more bundles from wholesale companies, regardless of their reviews.
As an alternative, we will be offering home-made bundles, such as these, of various herbs (including common and broad leaf sage) harvested from our own Maude’s Medicinal Garden. These bundles will be great for smoke cleansing and many other spiritual practices.
However, unless you have cultural connections to indigenous countries who practice smudging, none of these products would be appropriate for smudging ceremonies.
