The artisan candles, specialty potions, wortcunning remedies, cauldron brews and other concoctions skillfully crafted at Witchcrafts Artisan Alchemy™ are designed with herbs, resins, curios and focused magical intent in the full spirit of Old World Tradition. Not taken lightly, but with commitment, honor, a spirit open to life, a mind open to learning, and an eye open to the threads and patterns weaving throughout the Cosmos, the Work practiced at Witchcrafts Artisan Alchemy™ is guided by the thirteen ethical Laws of the Traditional Herbalist.

Eihwaz - the rune of trustworthiness.

  1. Be aware of all four elements. Each facet of the Work requires a balance of the four.
  2. Be aware, "as above, so below." As one sows, so shall one reap.
  3. Any remedy of the Traditional Herbalist must be in balance - air, earth, fire and water.
  4. Work only for good: to restore health, well-being, peace, balance.
  5. The poisons of the Traditional Herbalist are to be used only to dispel or suffocate that which causes harm to a fellow creature.
  6. No concoction of the Traditional Herbalist is made to be used to impair or injure anyone or anything.
  7. The Traditional Herbalist works with the Cosmos, in sympathetic energetic harmony.
  8. The Traditional Herbalist practices conservation, never taking more than is needed, or taking without leaving behind a gift or blessing.
  9. The Traditional Herbalist will do no harm, stirring the cauldron of Creation only for good.
  10. The Traditional Herbalist practices the Craft with Awareness, living life daily with magical Awareness and wonder. Practicing Awareness is cultivated as a way of life.
  11. The Traditional Herbalist follows the natural cycles of the Moon, the Earth, the Stars, and the patterns of the Cosmos.
  12. The Traditional Herbalist knows from Doing, and is a practitioner of Action, understanding that all Action influences everything else.
  13. The Traditional Herbalist learns from her/his Craft, understanding that the Act of Doing brings about Greater Knowledge.
At Witchcrafts Artisan Alchemy™ I strive to practice the Craft with integrity and to pass the energy of this integrity on to you, my clients, through the lovely offerings you purchase from my shoppe. May you who choose to purchase from Witchcrafts Artisan Alchemy™ be blessed through the practice of ethical Witchcraft ~ Liorah Lleucu.
