Note from shop owner Greetings darklings and strange wanderers,

This Etsy shop is on permanent vacation. After seeing the path Etsy is going down from its consistent rise in fees to small businesses to punishing those who do not conform to new standards in how we handle our businesses and pushing this platform closer and closer to resembling Amazon, I have decided to step away from this as a sales platform. I am mid-process migrating my products to be hosted on my own website where they shall remain and where you can find me moving forward.

But fear not, my dears! If you visit my site currently you can find my whereabouts in the wild vending in the Northeast. I am also regularly appearing on social media where you can discover what I've been up to lately.

Thank you for those who found me on here and have stuck with me. I promise more wonders are on their way.

In wonderment and curiosity,
Old Growth Alchemy

About OldGrowthAlchemy

Sales 125
On Etsy since 2017

Once upon a time...

In the beginning, there was curiosity.

Old Growth Alchemy began as a way to share illuminations of my ongoing study in folk herb craft, lore, storytelling, and traditional witchery through interaction with the sensuous, animate earth. My creations demonstrate how the experience of leaf, twig, root, flower, or branch transforms depending upon the medium by which they are encountered. In my products, I reflect upon my findings and the fruits of seasonal harvests and experimentations.

The familiar will transform into the unusual by examining forgotten and overlooked plants in unlikely places.

At this moment, I would consider myself an apprenticing folk herbalist. As such, I work with the plants as they appear in my life and prefer the folk methodologies in practice but am constantly hungering for the science and logic to back it up. My background in herbalism is self-taught research and inquiry as well as an apprenticeship with Spoonful Herbals in community herbalism.

Won't you join me in my discoveries as I create new enchantments out of old, unbroken things?
