The Sacred Sage is an emporium for all things metaphysical



The Sacred Sage of Farmington is an emporium for all things metaphysical, holistic, and just a little bit witchy. Their wares include magic wooden spoons, crystal balls, cauldrons, altar cloths, tarot cards, herbs, and stones. Looking for a pinch of Devil's Shoestring to help when asking for a raise at work? They've got it! Need to burn a sage bundle to clean out spirits in a new living space? They've got those too! A canopy of wind chimes twinkles over a tureen of small crystal balls near the front of the shop, and a menagerie of stones are available to help balance the mind, body, and spirit. While shopping, we asked owner Diane Rothman for some tips on picking the perfect pebble. Her advice is to pick what you find most visually attractive. Ignoring the descriptive cards that tell of the stone's healing power and letting your heart be your guide keeps one's brain from getting in the way.

Psychic readings, spiritual healing, and Reiki treatments are done here, and the shop also hosts the Farmington Faerie Gathering, the Goddess Bless, and the Stardust Holistic Festival.
