“Most people don’t know what to expect when they walk in and confess they came in ‘because I’ve been dying to know what’s in here,’” says Susan Asselin, Reverend Minister of Mother Mystic Spiritual Apothecary. You really can’t blame them. There are no windows in the shop for the curious passerby to peer in through and the epithet “Spiritual Apothecary” is, well, intriguing.
Susan describes herself as a Spiritual Worker, lifting spirits and helping seekers, “connect with the path to enlightenment that works for them,” and with that sometimes lovely, sometimes lonesome Saint Valentine’s holiday just around the corner, you can bet there are a lot of seekers. “People have many misconceptions about love potions. If you think about it, wearing a particular fragrance to attract attention makes it a love potion. Intention is everything! We carry many different love oils, some designed to attract a date, others to draw a mate, some purely for sexual magnetism. I also instruct people in creating their own love spell kits for specific goals.”
The shop also carries aromatherapy, candles, incense, herbs, crystals and more.
