History of Artemisia Botanicals
Established as a local herbs retailer in 1997, this store strives to provide Salem’s community with a massive selection of healing solutions. Unlike some other Salem new age and witch supply shops, Artemisia promotes natural and organic products. So if you’re at all interested in energetic integrity, this is a great place to supply your altar.
In addition to the absolutely incredible herb selection, they also offer amazing herbal blends, both for ingestion and magickal use.
All told, the store offers over 400 varieties of herbs and 100 teas. In addition to their herbal supplies, Artemisia Botanicals sells other olfactory delights like handmade goat’s milk soap. You’ll also find the usual set of witch supplies like containers, oils and candles, wands, drums and spell books.
Also unlike some other Salem shops, Artemisia Botanicals offers a particularly robust online store, so you can access all of their wares at any time.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about Artemisia is the atmosphere itself. This is no dark, stuffy witch shop. Instead, the store is bright, clean, and airy. It’s a very nice addition to the Salem landscape for this reason.
The staff is also incredibly friendly. I’ve leaned on their expertise nearly every time I’ve been in the store and I’ve never been disappointed.

My Review of Artemisia Botanicals
Artemisia Botanicals is among the particularly well-reviewed Salem witch supply shops. While I’ve never personally had a reading there, plenty of people who have tout the greatness of them – especially the tea leaf reading.
What I can say for sure is that Artemisia is one of the stores in Salem that I order products from year-round. Even when I’m not in Salem, I’m constantly tweaking the herbs and teas in my cart. These orders always arrive promptly and in fantastic condition.
Also, the friendliness and knowledge of the staff cannot be understated. All of the elements listed here (and others) make Artemisia Botanicals one of the very few Salem stores that transcends the realm of tourist destination. Locals and visitors enjoy this place alike all year long.
If it wasn’t obvious already, I highly recommend giving this place a go, no matter who you are. If you’re in Salem, chances are, you’ll love it. And if you’re looking for ethically-sourced, organic supplies for your spiritual endeavors, you can’t go wrong here either.
