Zen’s Botanical (

I love this business! I met them at the Denver Black Arts Festival and had to buy everything! They have all kinds of products that you can buy, mostly soaps, essential oils, shea butter (karité) and the like, all handmade and at amazing prices. Plus the woman there (the owner) was so sweet and helpful, and when I told her how excited I was about her business she literally teared up and gave me a hug!

The pictures above are from my most recent order. Included are several bars of soap (including a traditional handmade shea butter Black Soap) and pound of raw shea butter.

Some descriptions from the order and prices
1lb Raw Shea Butter - $10
Activated Charcoal Soap - made with bentonite clay, activated charcoal, vitamin E oil, black seed and essential oils.
Nubian Musk Soap - made with cinnamon stick powder, myrrh resin, essential oils and raw shea butter
Peppermint Oat Soap - essential oils, raw shea butter, peppermint herbs and whole oats

All soaps but African Black Soap are 3/$10.

African Black Soap is $6 per bar, and the bars are HUGE and smell amazing.

They also sell essential oil perfumes for men and women, woven tote bags, hair oils and sea sponges.

Chives are a common household herb you buy at the grocery store and many households just have them around; its a perfect situation for some practical magic.

Plant these wonderful little herbs outside your window or inside your room as they’ll passively repel nightmares and evil spirits from your workings and magical tools. They are also great companion plants for vegetables and your flowers as they prevent brown spots on roses and repel insects.

A sachet recipe for protection using chives:


The shell from garlic



Potato slice

dry the herbs separately and charge them with your will. To do this touch them and visualize your energies transferring and mixing with the raw power of the herb while focusing on protection, or what ever property of that herb you want to activate. lay them in the sun to charge as protection spells require masculine vibrations and the god of the sun is often evoked for protection spells.

You can grind them into a powder and spread them around your home or keep them whole in a satchet to be carried around with you. Rub the herbs and smell their fragrance when you want their protective powers to increase for a short time.

An Oil concoction recipe:

You can also simmer them in olive oil for 15 minutes to infuse the oil with their properties. Make sure it is olive oil as it has strong protective properties itself. Place them in a tincture and anoint your tools, clothes, and yourself to activate this protective spell.
