The Pagan Witch
2" Tea Ball Strainer
First established in 2014, The Pagan Witch is a leading online provider of metaphysical products that also oversees a thriving digital community. Though we focus on the Pagan and Wiccan communities, we carry a wide variety of goods, including incense, candles, and Celtic & fairy jewellery, that appeal to pagans & non-pagans alike. We even have customers in non-pagan churches that come to us for incense and unadorned chalices because they have found our prices, product quality, and customer service to be better than those of companies that cater to their own particular faiths.
Our goals are simple:
To provide a wide variety of high-quality Pagan, Wiccan & "new age" products to our customers. From jewellery and books to ritual supplies and home decor, we take pride in offering thousands of products to our customers. Our hope is to give our customers a one-stop shop for all of their ritual & metaphysical needs. We source our products from a wide variety of artists and vendors to provide a unique shopping experience. Apart from certain jewellery items noted on the site as custom orders, all of our products are kept in stock in our large warehouse.
To offer fair & affordable pricing. We know that people are always looking for ways to save money, particularly in today's difficult economy. Many products in the new age market are not readily available in standard stores and if you have been browsing the Pagan & Wiccan market you have no doubt seen that many stores use this as an opportunity to overprice their offerings. We offer our products at the most affordable prices we can, with most of our items discounted as much as 15% off of manufacturer suggested retail prices. We choose to discount across the board so that everyone gets discount prices on every order instead of only giving price breaks to the hearty souls who scour the web for coupons and promotion codes.
To provide a discreet shopping experience. We understand that many of our customers would prefer not to receive packages that scream "I am buying Pagan and Wiccan supplies" ... even those who are out of the broom closet may have neighbours or delivery people who are less than understanding about pagan faiths. For that reason, our company name and logo will not appear on your package. If your package is shipping to a United States address, all that is on our shipping labels and boxes is your address, our company initials, and our return address. [Please note that we are required to disclose our name and the package contents on customs documentation for international packages, so we regrettably cannot offer discreet labelling on packages shipping outside of the United States or to military APO/FPO addresses.]
To provide a safe & secure shopping venue. We have SSL secure checkout. Once your order is processed, any credit card information is removed from our records. All orders are checked to ensure that the billing information provided on the order is a match against the credit card information on file with the bank (or, for PayPal orders, that the order is shipping to a confirmed address on the PayPal account).
To protect the privacy of our customers. We never sell your contact information to outside companies and we will never call you unless there is a problem with your order. We do not send catalogues or advertisements to your physical mailing address. Unless you sign up for our newsletter, your e-mail address will only be used to send communication specifically related to orders placed on the site.
We thank you for visiting The Pagan Witch and hope that you enjoy your shopping experience!

During peak order periods (typically around Sabbats), high order volumes may add delays of 2 to 4 additional business days.

- When will my order arrive?
International orders are shipped by First Class International Mail or Global Priority Mail (depending on the weight & size of items ordered). Transit times vary greatly depending on a country's distance from the United States and the efficiency of customs and the post office in the receiving country. In general, you can expect your package to take at least 2 to 3 weeks to arrive after we ship it out, possibly significantly longer. Please plan accordingly.
Please note that due to extended transit times for international packages, the earliest that an international package will be considered lost by the US postal service and our insurance carrier is 45 days from the date of shipment. If your international shipment has not arrived after 45 days, please notify us as soon as possible after 45 days have passed. No lost package claims will be accepted more than 60 days after the package has shipped.
- Will I have to pay duties/tariffs on this order?
Many countries charge import taxes or customs duties on imported goods as part of the customs clearance process - in some countries, the import taxes & duties are very steep. Tax rates and laws vary greatly from country to country and The Pagan Witch cannot provide information about the duties that may be charged by your specific country. These taxes and fees are not included in the amount paid to The Pagan Witch. You are personally responsible for any duties, tariffs, and fees imposed by your country for importing products.
The Pagan Witch will not refund or replace orders that are delayed, confiscated or destroyed by customs due to a customer's failure to pay import taxes & duties. If you are unsure about the rates & policies in your country, avoid unpleasant surprises by checking with the customs department in your country before you place an order.
Please do not ask us to mark an order as a gift or falsify values on your customs form to get out of paying taxes and duties. Requests to do this will not be honored. It is a crime under 13 U.S.C. § 305: US Code - Section 305 to falsify information on export documents and can result not only in the loss of our ability to ship orders internationally but also steep fines and jail time for us and possible fines and prosecution for the recipient as well.
- Will my order make it through customs?
Due to vast differences in customs laws from country to country, The Pagan Witch cannot provide information about customs restrictions for any particular location. Many countries have restrictions on importing herbs, knives, precious metals, and other products. The customer is responsible for ensuring that all items ordered can be legally imported into his/her country.
The Pagan Witch will not refund or replace orders that are delayed, confiscated or destroyed by customs due to violations of import policies. If you are unsure about the customs policies in your country, avoid unpleasant surprises by checking with the customs department in your country before you place an order.
- Do you ship to my country?
Please create an account by clicking the "Account" link at the top right-hand side of our site. During signup, we'll ask for your shipping address details including country. If your country is not in the dropdown menu of available countries, we, unfortunately, cannot ship to your country at this time.
- What are my payment choices for an international order?
For most international orders, we accept PayPal only. Additional details on our payment methods are available on our Payment Processing information page. Please do NOT attempt to use a credit/debit card on the checkout page for international orders. If you are paying for an international order by credit/debit card, you must choose PayPal as the payment method during checkout. Please note that we will not ship your order until we receive payment from you.
Orders shipping to Puerto Rico, US territories and military APO/FPO addresses are considered US orders and can be paid using Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and PayPal Express.

- Discreet Shipping Policy
We understand that many of our customers would prefer to not receive packages that scream "I am buying Pagan and Wiccan supplies". Many of our customers are non-pagans and even those who are out of the broom closet may have neighbors or delivery people who are less than understanding about pagan faiths. For that reason, we use plain discreet shipping for your privacy. Orders are shipped in unmarked boxes and/or post-office-provided Priority Mail shipping boxes (depending on the size & shape of the items ordered). With few exceptions (see below), our packages do not have our company name or logo on the outside of the package. If your package is shipping to a United States address using standard shipping (not Express Mail), all that is on our shipping labels and boxes is your name & address, our company initials (TMC LLC.) and our return address.
- Exceptions to this policy:
1) International Packages - We are required to disclose our company name and the package contents on customs documentation for international packages, so we regrettably cannot offer discreet labeling on packages shipping outside of the United States or to military APO/FPO addresses.
2) Express Mail (Overnight Shipping) - Packages shipped using Express Mail will have our company name on the Express Mail package documentation.

Pricing and Billing
- Do I have to pay sales tax?
You only have to pay sales tax if your order is shipping to Massachusetts. The current Massachusetts sales tax rate is 6.25%.
- I have a question on my charges
Click the "Account" link at the top right-hand side of our site to review your orders and compare the order history on our website with your financial records. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact customer service for further assistance.
- I need a copy of my receipt/invoice
Click the "Account" link at the top right-hand side of our site to view and print invoices.
- When will my credit appear on Account?
Credits usually take 5-7 business days from the time we receive your item(s).
- When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will be charged when your package is shipped.
If you are paying by credit card, a credit card pre-authorization will be placed at the time you submit your order to ensure that the card is valid and that funds are available. Your bank may place a temporary hold on funds at that time in anticipation of receiving the charge. The funds are then "captured" (charged) when the order is shipped.
Please Note: If you attempt to place an order using billing information that does not match the cardholder information on file with your bank and the pre-authorization fails due to an address verification system (AVS) failure, it is possible that your bank will place a temporary hold on funds even though the transaction does not go through. Unfortunately, we have no control over this. The temporary hold will be released by your bank in the timeframe specified in your cardholder agreement. To prevent this, please be sure that the billing information provided is an exact match (name and complete address) to the card information on file with your bank.
- How do I get a coupon or promotion code?

Mediumship Readings, Healings, and Reiki
The mediums, energy healers, and spiritual and life coaches here are no substitute for professional medical, legal, financial, or psychological help. We do not condone or advise drug use as a substitute for medical or psychological help, nor do we support anyone in the group that gives that advice. We are not responsible for other mediums and/or energy healers. Results are not guaranteed. No one should expect a 100% accurate reading from anyone. Mediums all have off days in their channeling, and not even the most seasoned medium is perfect.
If you are getting a free reading or a reading from a practicing medium: If you're getting a free reading or healing or getting a reading from a practicing medium, please know that the medium or energy healer is most likely not a seasoned medium or healer and is practicing on their skills. When you help a reader to improve their skills at no cost but for your time, you are the equivalent of a teacher even though you may not feel you are teaching. However, you indeed are because the reader is learning how to work with another individual. This is a mutually beneficial program, the sitter gets insights or communication often for no cost and the reader gets to advance their gifts and knowledge. There are no guarantees that what the reader says will be accurate. Also, since the practicing mediums do not have a set schedule, the wait time may vary.
