Heathenry Herbs Homeschooling

It is the Holiday shopping season and as we all seek out gifts for our loved ones, I want to encourage you to consider local, small, and Heathen businesses to buy from. Lets support our Heathen Community.

Heathen Community

Growing up in the Christian church, I heard a lot of ministers and leaders encourage their followers to purchase only from fellow Christians – usually with some admonishment to non-Christians and encouragement to evangelize if you couldn’t find a fellow Christian to patron. While I dislike the other part, I do with Pagans and Heathens would support each other as much as monotheists do.

“We should be supporting our polytheist artisans. What money we decide to spend on non-essentials should, as much as possible, be recycled back into our own communities. It’s one of the things that can help to make a community vibrant and strong. If i could, I would only do business with polytheists. Now, that may not be possible yet and probably won’t be in our lifetimes, but inasmuch as we can, I think we should consider doing so. ”

Some Artisans of the Heathen Community

The Well and Spindle – check out my blog post on the pattern I got from Karina that I stitched for my very first attempt at cross stitch!

Wyrd Curiosities – Galina’s shop for paintings, prayer cards, and more. I adore her prayer cards so much, they’d make great gifts for the polytheists in your life.

Asphodel Press – for devotional texts and books about the Northern Tradition.

Blagowood – woodwork for your Pagan altar

Deb’s Burnt Offerings – more gorgeous altar pieces

The Slavic Way – Norse and Slavic statues and books.

Norhalla – Heathen children’s books and dolls (we’re getting some things for Pumpkin from here)

The Saga of Bjorn Thorolfson by Eric Sjerven – a family friendly tale written by a heathen who’s YouTube channel and work I really appreciate. My review of the book coming soon (this is an affiliate link).

The Northern Herbalist – teas! (I plan on getting some stocking stuffers here)
