No Witches Apothecary would be without its tools. An ancient grinding tool, the Mortar represents the female aspect, while the Pestle, the Male aspect. Together they are used to prepare herbs, spices and foods for a variety of purposes. If you are wanting to use them for cooking and magic,ideally you should have two Mortar and Pestles, one for Magickal purposes and one for culinary use. All of our Mortar and Pestles are unique, no two have the same markings. Once home, consecrate them for your own use.
