    Default Bulk herbs on the cheap

    I have seen ebay sellers and other online occult shops selling herbs for very cheap in lots.

    One that caught my eye in particular was an eBay site that sold herbs in lots of 70 different types at 2 tablespoons each. {About one OZ}

    I did the math on the cost per oz of about 1/4th of them as well as counting in the price of mini zip lock bags and ex-cetera. The price for each herb that has been packaged typically is about .50 an oz.

    I have looked all over the Internet, the occult stores near me, and in the azura green catalogue. I even compared the prices of cheap herbal tea to the herbs available. Everywhere sells, at the cheapest, .50 for an oz.

    It obvious that they would grow it; makes sense. But, an eBay seller who sells 70 different herbs wouldn't be growing them.... right?

    So where the hell do they get their herbs?

    We have similar "bargains" on the Australian eBay site and there is an incense company that you can buy in bulk from that sells all sorts of herbs etc. However, like Lady Dunsany said, I would be a tad wary about the age of herbs - although I was told by someone that for magickal purposes age doesn't really matter, at least as much as if the herbs were for medicinal purposes. Still, my personal preference would be if such people actually know their herbs and know actually what they are selling ... And 70 herbs .. woudl you honestly need that many?
    The journey can only begin when you allow it.

    My intention is to do experiments with the herbal properties of different plants.

    Almost every herb book that i have read has always had different and conflicting information as well as sometimes with errors that could cause fatality.

    As far as strangth lessing with age, this is never been my experience. Its the belief that counts as far as i am concerned.
