See picture for common spiritual uses, and corresponding element, planet, zodiac and chakra! Sold per ounce. Herbs are measured and packaged to order, and arrive in a glassine paper bag that is sealed with washi tape. While we know there are many containers we could put herbs in, we prefer biodegradable paper! Storage is up to you, and depends on how long you intend to keep it, your environment, and your aesthetic! Please use your herbs! It’s hard to determine shelf life expectancy for dried goods, so every once in a while give your herbs the sniff test, and the vision check! Vision Check: open your herbs in decent lighting, make a mental note of color and quality. Check again during sniff test and if herbs get moldy (humid regions, looking at you!), or they’ve lost their vibrancy, follow the letting go steps at the end. Sniff test: when you first receive your herbs take a good whiff of their vitality as a base line! (No need to inhale! Just a sniff will do!) Periodically check your herbs with the efficient sniff test to make sure the aroma is strong. When it starts getting weak USE THEM! If they have lost their smell and your sniffer is healthy, it’s time to let go! Letting go: It’s ok that you forgot or hoarded your herbs! We are all working on mindfulness, and none of us are perfect! Now it’s time to honor them! Spread them in your yard, sprinkle them on your plants, burn them in your cauldron (check safety first) sing to them, or whatever works for you! Just remember to thank them for spending time with you!
