On Etsy since 2008

Riding a River of Magic in the Derby City

Blade and Broom Botanica is an apothecary, tool seller, and witchy boutique currently located in Louisville, Kentucky, USA -- though we got our start on the outskirts of Indianapolis, Indiana. It doesn't have a brick and mortar existence, and I am grateful to Etsy for the wide range of clientele I have been able to engage through this one-woman, home-based (witch)Craft business.

I opened the shop in 2008, but I didn't list any products until the tail end of 2011. I'm tickled that the shop has grown so much in the last several years, and I look forward to what is in store for the future. I have been especially grateful that Blade & Broom has been there with me through life changes, willing to be a hobby business while I work full-time and equally willing to provide my family's main source of income when needed.

Blade & Broom is dedicated to providing high quality handmade tools, robes, and herbal blends for our clients to use in their magic. I make ABSOLUTELY NO claims about magical results -- even before the Etsy policies banning such advertising. On this Etsy shop, I provide the tools and guidance. YOU DO THE MAGIC.

What I will do is make you a beautiful robe, a powerful divination tool, or a naturally potent herbal concoction. I will talk with my clients about their options -- both magical and mundane.

I was a teacher ... AM a teacher. This shop is one more way in which I bring knowledge and power to the people of my community.

Of course, teaching, coaching, psychic readings, and ritual work are all SERVICES, and Etsy is a *product*-focused marketplace. If you are interested in the services I can offer, please feel welcomed to visit the Blade & Broom website at

At Blade and Broom, I believe that magic is the work of the Witch -- the wise or "cunning" wo/man who acts as healer, psychic, teacher, and guide to the community. The worlds of the Seen and Unseen touch and blend in ways that the Witch understands and can help her family, friends, and clients navigate.

My products and services are all aimed at helping you claim the life you desire.

This shop is dedicated to providing you with the tools and supplies to perform your own magic. If you are seeking a Village Witch to perform a working on your behalf, Etsy's terms of use prohibit all Sellers from offering any services here at Etsy. However, I do offer readings, coaching, teaching, and full ritual services at my independent website

Returns and exchange details
PHYSICAL ITEMS -- We cannot accommodate refunds on custom items, such as poppets, rings, cords, crowns, or garments. These items are made specifically for you at the time of purchase.

DOWNLOADS -- You can receive a refund before you have downloaded your PDF by cancelling your order.
At this time, we accept PayPal and Etsy Direct checkout (credit card).

Most orders can be cancelled at any time BEFORE they ship/download for a full refund. However, all clothing, poppet, and jewelry orders are custom made for you, with materials purchased after your order was placed. In the case of ALL custom orders, cancellation isn't usually possible. (Check with me via convo if you need to cancel an order. The stars may be aligned to help you, if you but ask.) ;)
All physical items ship via USPS . I've opted to let Etsy and USPS calculate those shipping costs, and you can upgrade to expedited shipping, if you choose.

Combined shipping can sometimes be tricky to calculate ahead of time, especially on international orders. The shipping costs reflected in your total *may* be higher than needed, in which case, I will send you a refund. Please bear in mind that shipping costs are meant to reflect postage, shipping container, and packing material. (We often use recycled boxes with shredded paper as padding in order to lessen our financial and environmental impact. It's our way of keeping your costs low and our Earth happy.)

At this time, all books and pdf BOS pages are delivered electronically via Etsy's download manager (except the "complete BoS", which is too large and is delivered via Drive/Dropbox). If you are having trouble accessing your file(s), please contact Etsy for assistance. Your views in these systems are very different from mine, so it is difficult for me to troubleshoot problems with the download process. (Of course, if it is an issue of the wrong file coming through the download, that was my error. Contact me, and I will email you the correct file.)
