I have been practicing, teaching, and involved in my Pagan community for 15 years. I have the job I've dreamed of since I was 12 years old, which is an amazing and rare blessing! I have owned and operated Conjured Cardea for 6 years, with over 30,000 sales and 100% positive feedback.
Rootwork is the utilization of specific altar set-ups, tools, saints, spirits or deities, ingredients, formulas and most importantly, offerings and prayers. These are all chosen using research, recording, long term dedication and experimentation, as well as tradition to find their affect on a specific goal. Just as you would participate in physical therapy after you injure your body-being guided by a professional on a scheduled, detailed process designed to rebuild and heal-rootwork is a spiritual therapy designed to rebuild the life from a spiritual vantage point. Through a series of daily prayers and habits designed to focus your mind and spirit on your goal, you can achieve change in your life. Change your spirit with daily exercise and focus to regain your health, connection and life force."-Moma Sarah
Please feel free to stop by my blog to read more about myself and practices;
Conjured Cardea is most well known for my oil formulas and hand-made, authentic items. As a child, there was something so charming and mysterious about those little glass bottles of magic, and I wanted to learn how to use and encompass that energy. I know hundreds of formulas, many by heart, which makes those recipes all the more special to me.
I also offer a full line of custom items and services to aid you in getting just the results you're looking for.
I do things a little differently than your big-box botanicas. Each order is filled upon request-I do not sell factory housed products. Your items will be made fresh and just for you and your needs. Many herbs and roots I used are hand harvested and organic and each bottle is hand-labeled and gift wrapped. Welcome to Conjured Cardea! Come on in and get used to authentic rootwork.
