recently the witch cabinet launched an e-zine called "we believe you - femmes surviving toxic masculinity".
the zine's call for submissions offered herbal gifts to BIPOC folks who submitted. some of these gifts are coming from the remaining stock of the witch cabinet's apothecary. the remainder of the herbal gifts are coming from you: magical, powerful, witchy femme community.
the idea is that you will send the witch cabinet dried herbs and we will put all the herbs together into one blend, which will be sent to the contributors.
the requests from BIPOC contributors in terms of herbal support have included support for:
healing broken hearts
setting clear boundaries
there has been a specific request for herbs that will not interact negatively with anti-depressant and psychoactive pharmaceuticals - so we'll want to avoid things like st john's wort and valerian.
some herbs i imagine being helpful would include: hawthorn, nettles, yarrow, california poppy, dandelion, calendula as well as flower essences.
you can post on the facebook page for the zine with ideas for the blend or questions. also please feel encouraged to post photos of your packages you are sending ♥
we will be making the blend at the beginning of march, so please send your herbs in by Feb 28th at the very latest to this address:
