About Us


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;


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.
