Wondering if anyone knows where I can order lavender to put in my tarot bags and boxes to keep everything smelling lovely.

Does anyone else keep any type of herb or crystal with their decks?

there are a lot of lavender farms in the NW, here is one that is just across the river from me.

Try Sunshine Lavender Farm in NC:

I normally keep crystals with each tarot and oracle deck except for my Gaian Tarot, which came with a little pouch of "blessing" herbs (lavender, sage, sweetgrass, and cedar) that I keep with that particular deck.

I've actually sewn up a tarot bag with a lineing in it so that I can keep lavender and sage arond my cards at all times. It's pretty easy and I put a little snap on them so I can empty them out and refill with fresh herbs from time to time.

I like to have Lavender on the table in a small vase.
I grow it in the garden for this purpose.
I keep everything in a little treasure box and in them I also keep crystals and fragrant candles, lotus flower actually, they smell divine! The Ancient Egyptians used this flower for healing purposes, quite apt, me thinks!!
They make everything smell lovely, it even impregnates the cards in time.

I keep a citrine crystal in my bag with my cards. It is one of two crystals that don't need cleansing. Most crystals need sunlight or moonlight or a saltwater bath to cleanse them every once in a while but not citrine. It helps absorb any negative energy or simply any residual energy from your last reading.:thumbsup:

I'm just curious, Lavander as a herb cannot damage cards? Smell is intense so I'm afraid cards will suck those smells and oils and will change their appearance.

Ive never stored herbs with my cards (Ive just used crystals) so I have no experience of this. But I guess one would have to be careful. I think maybe use just a little bit of the herb or see that it is well dried -and maybe have it in a separate little pouch near the cards?

I have lavender in small pillow/pouch and cards in another pouch, and everything in one very big bag. Lavender pouch only touches pouches and not cards directly.

Well that certainly sounds safe for your deck.

Once in a while citrine will have to be either cleansed or sound cleansing to get the ossilary pulse regulated. All crystals. Not all the time, but from time to time with the ones they say- don't have to be cleansed. The Ossiary pulse gets off wack once in a while.
