About Our Resources
Since many of our items are new to customers, we have elected to focus some of our energy on providing background information sheets. These will serve as a starting point for research and interest. While we have the sheets in the store, we have to charge for them there to cover the cost of printing. Please feel free to download these for personal use or to share with friends. We have the items referred to on these sheets for sale at Pathways in many beautiful forms and price points. If you’re interested please contact us for more details and watch for updated links to our upcoming on-line store.

Our herbs and botanicals are all either gathered from the wild or organically grown. None have been treated with radiation or chemical sprays. They are of the highest and freshest quality that we could locate. All plants are definitely not the same. We have chosen to do business with international suppliers who obtain the herbs where they grow optimally. Rich in color, scent and texture there is a noticeable superior quality to these products. Herbs and botanicals have many uses both esoterically and medicinally. The herbs listed here fall under BOTH categories. Sometimes esoteric uses suggest burning herbal/botanical combinations. Individuals may be allergic to the smoke from some herbs. Always use common sense and, if you choose to burn herbs, burn only small amounts in open spaces. Of course, discontinue use if any symptoms develop and seek medical assistance taking name and sample of herbs with you. If you choose to use herbs and botanicals medicinally adequate research and study is YOUR individual responsibility. Everyone’s body chemistry and sensitivity is different, pay attention to your body. Follow guidelines for usage frequency and amount given in herbal reference material. Some herbs can react adversely with medications. If you are on medications check with your health care practitioner before taking herbs.
Please consult trained professionals before using or administering any botanicals that are unfamiliar or new to you. We sell the highest quality herbs we can locate. They are perhaps more potent than your previous experiences with botanicals purchased elsewhere. Be cautious in usage. Please consult reference material and trained professionals before beginning ANY course of administration or usage. We assume no responsibility for improper usage.
Smudging is the moving of smoke from various sacred herbs through a space, your personal energy field (or that of another being) or around objects such as crystals, stones or sacred tools. It comes to us from Native American traditions, but many peoples and many cultures have echoed the principle.Smudging clears negative energy and purifies the physical and finer environments. Everything and everyone has an energetic (auric) field around it/them. These fields can become contaminated with negative vibrations and thoughtforms. These negative energetics, if not removed, can cause disharmony, imbalance, depression and illness. Sometimes these negative energies are left in our environment from contact with others who are creating or harboring them. Sometimes they form tenacious connecting cords draining energy and vitality. Smudging can eliminate these imbalances and restore harmony. This information sheet explains how to smudge a person, place or item and explains the various herbs used for smudging. We carry a wide variety of smudge and accessories for smudging.
Indigenous peoples throughout the world have used stones and crystals to heal themselves and their animals, to strengthen their spiritual ability & to enter into hidden realms. Wearing crystals & stones can help to bring you mental clarity, emotional stability & physical balance. Giving crystals & stones as gifts to others who are not aware of their properties can still be beneficial for them. Even if someone is unable to sense crystal energy they are still affected by the energies & the subconscious mind responds. Throughout history gems have been associated with royalty. Perhaps the use of stones in crowns, jewelry, thrones & other treasures were meant to bring the virtues of those stones to the rulers wearing them.
Remember that stones and crystals can be:
an ornament or decoration for yourself, someone else, an area
a source of inspiration of the beauty & perfection possible in nature
a tool for healing on many levels
a powerful assistant in inner work
a teacher on many levels
