Graveyard Dirt, or Graveyard Dust, is a common inclusion in spellwork, but it is often associated with black magic. However, it is mainly used for necromancy, or speaking with the dead, which we may want or feel a need to do during esbats and sabbats, or when we need to help move spirits along. For those working with entities regularly, or for those who just need extra power during spell work, this is a great addition to an altar.
While many Graveyard Dirt sources provide actual graveyard dirt, some (like this practitioner) find it disrespectful to take land from those who are trying to rest simply to increase our power. As such, our Graveyard Dirt uses two commonly used Graveyard Dirt alternatives, mullein and valerian root, to add energy to our work without disturbing or disrespecting the dead. There's also less of a chance that any entities attached to the dirt will become attached to us.
This listing is for one glass 1 oz. jar of herb blend, which includes valerian root and mullein. As always, be careful when in contact with herbs. While we use a quality source for our herb collection, skin irritation from a particular plant is always a possibility.

Please consult a doctor and ensure for your particular situation (side effects with medications, pregnancy) that you are able to use particular herbs before you apply or ingest herbal products. As stated, our herbs are sourced from quality sources, like Mountain Rose Herbals or Starwest Botanicals, as well as local apothecaries, but it is important to address your particular body's capability in handling herbs. In addition, do not ingest unless explicitly stated or unless it's clear to do so, like for teas and oxymels.
