Enchantments is New York City’s oldest occult store, located in the East Village. We opened our doors in 1982.
The store carries a diverse range of products for different magical traditions and spiritual paths. We welcome everyone, from the novice to the advanced practitioner.
We have a small, dedicated staff that is knowledgeable in many areas. Our mission is to help people empower themselves, heal and grow through spiritual practice.
We believe in the principle "harm none," and do not endorse items that hurt others.
The Magickal Apothecary
The Enchantments Formulary has hundreds of recipes that we can create from. Part of our collection comes from Herman Slater of the Magickal Childe’s “The Magickal Formulary.” Formulas that are not pre-made can be mixed up on request.
In store, we have over a hundred blended oils, dozens of powder incenses, over a dozen baths and 6 types of ouanga bags pre-made and available for purchase. All of these products are hand-made with care by our employees.
We carry over a hundred fragrance and essential oils, and almost 200 herbs and resins, which we use as ingredients for our products. These can also be purchased individually.
Custom Carved Candles
One of our most popular products is our custom carved candles. These are 7-day pillar candles in a glass jar. We carve them with magical symbols and your name and astrological sign, anoint them with appropriate oil, and rub metal glitter into the carvings to define them. We place a small offering of honey, iron filings and incense into the jar before replacing the candle. The candles are a complete spell that you use as a tool to help manifest your intention.
We make carved candles on request. We will consult with you to figure out the appropriate combination for your candle. Then we make the candle in front of you. They take between 15 and 45 minutes to make.
If you would like to get a candle made, please arrive before 7 pm. If you prefer, you can purchase a candle in-store and pick it up later in the day. We are unable, however, to take orders for candles over the phone.
