Indigo Desert Moon

I love crystals and stones, tarot and Runes, weaving and nature! Indigo Desert Moon was created from that love, I feel so fortunate to works with these things everyday but enough about me, you want to know about all of these things.

Pagan Prayer Beads, the perfect way to carry crystals with you every day as a talisman or protection amulet. They fit right in your pocket (just don’t forget and run them thru the washing machine!) They are a perfect meditation tool to focus your mind and keep count of prayers and chants. I typically make my prayer beads with 3 sets of three beads in each section, 3 sections with a 27 bead count, one beginning marker bead, one ending marker bead and two markers dividing the sections. I also make a couple of variations, a four section elemental set, great for elemental breathing exercises or ritual and a 6 directional, below, north, east, south, west and above with 3 sets of three beads in each section. I have created these in many different themes, animal totems, elements, Goddesses, crystal combinations and for many different paths. I can create a custom set just for you.

Dream Catchers are like a hand woven spider web ☺ I create them from things found in nature, recycled remnants of sari silk and yarn. Some have bells and shells; sometimes they have feathers that come from beautiful turkeys owned by a wonderful man that is working to preserve heritage breeds. These feathers are naturally moulted meaning that the turkey has worn them and left his/her mark on them. You can see the marks on the feather shaft they leave when they preen themselves and there may be a little bent or broken bit here and there that occurred while they were out and about for the day. Or they could be from my flock of French Guinea Fowl, I love them! They are noisy and busy I can watch them for hours while foraging and they are the most amazing alarm system; if anything gets within 200 yards they are shockingly loud!! These are the same feathers I use for my smudge kits. These are natural feathers from birds living natural long lives.

Smudge bundles are natural plant material bundled and wrapped in pretty mercerized cotton string, sometimes the colors have meaning and sometimes it’s done on a whim. I am a weaver so I have lots of pretty string ☺ This spring I felt in a very blue and green mood! I use a surgeons knot and extra length at the base when I wrap them so it’s easy to untie and retie if you wish to pull out plant material to burn separately or loosen your bundle. As a side note a bundle of sage or any other smudge bundle is a single wrapped bundle of plant material. So when you are ordering a bundle it’s one piece not several pieces, there is sometimes confusion when someone is very new to smudging what the term “bundle” means in this context. Also it is important to note that smudge bundles are made from plants that grow outside in nature and after being cut they lay on a rack to dry, it is possible that there may be an occasional bit of web or insect casing. This is perfectly normal and does not detract from the power of the natural plant energy.

Abalone shells are another gift from nature, I love the green abalone, the one with the deep blue and green iridescence but sometimes all I can find is the red abalone that is more of a pearlescent, white with light blue and pink flashes. The green abalone is a shallower; shell the red abalone is much more domed so it’s deeper which is nice for burning loose plant matter. Please never use a charcoal disk to burn resin in your abalone shell use instead a small cauldron or soapstone bowl placed on a heat proof surface when using charcoal, resins and loose incense.

Stones and Crystals come from Mama Earth sometime they are tumbled and polished and sometimes they are in their natural state but they are always unique individuals perfect with their imperfections and as different as snowflakes. Color variations, size, sometime even cracks, fissures and dings all occur in nature. I will never send out a stone or crystal that I would not use in my own practice. I take great care in selecting the stones and crystal I offer.

The Medicine bags I make are 100% pure wool hand carded and dyed then hand felted. They are light and airy like gossamer and soft enough for your most delicate sacred treasures. They smell of the lavender, patchouli and cedar that I store them in to keep them safe from moths that could nibble them. The come in two size the small is perfect for carrying crystals, herbs and runes the larger ones are big enough for most tarot decks :)

Many Blessings,
Desert Willow

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

NO WHOLESALE. PLEASE DON'T ASK. I. DO. NOT. WHOLESALE. NO WHOLESALE. My in box is clogged on a daily basis with wholesale inquires. Please stop asking.

Please, no wholesale inquires. I do not offer wholesale. The reason being is that I am a one woman operation that runs 2 busy shops and a farm. I design, make, photograph, grow and market everything by myself. There are not enough hours in the day to make things to support a business other than my own.

Gift wrapping and packaging

While I don't offer gift wrapping all of my offerings do come individually wrapped without pricing information in cute (in my opinion) little packets ready to give :)

Custom and personalized orders

I am always happy to create something for your specific needs :)

What is a bundle in regards to Sage?

A bundle when referring plant matter for smudging is a single piece aka a bundle. Not multiple pieces, but a bundled bunch of plant matter tied with string.
