Our candles are carefully crafted in our kitchen with positive energies, love, light, and laughter.
Each candle is carefully poured and scented with the intentions of the properties that the different scents offer. We are always working hard to bring new research, scents, and products into our company.
Our candles are made with 100% natural non-GMO soy wax grown here in the USA, shea butter (jars and tins only), 100% pure essential oils, pure essential oil blends, or pure plant extracts, natural hemp, and are completely additive and dye free. All of our candles will be a creamy white unless the essential oil/extract has tinted the wax.
The Appalachian Pan-Pagan Prison Ministry — It is our goal to continue growing our pan-pagan prison ministry to serve the spiritual needs of our fellow pagans currently incarcerated in the West Virginia prison system, as well as in Ohio and elsewhere. Currently we are on-site monthly at five facilities in WV and five facilities in Ohio, including Death Row. The request for our presence is growing. According to the Pew Research Center’s Forum on Religion and Public Life, Pagan/earth-based, Native American, and other non-Abrahamic religions are growing in our prisons nationally at a combined rate of 71%. Study after study is showing the effectiveness of spiritual and religious programming in prisons on the reduction of recidivism rates. It is our goal to continue and grow a pagan prison ministry that will be able to address the spiritual needs of all pagans incarcerated. This is not a “one-size fits all” ministry….we are ordained and licensed ministers from a variety of pagan paths: traditional polytheist, Wiccan, Asatru, Odinist, Satanist/Luciferian, Appalachian Hoodoo, Celtic Paganism, etc…
Aside from the prisons we visit on-site monthly, we also offer correspondence courses and work with several Kindred and Covens across the nation. The courses we offer are: Perennial Lessons in Living (A Celtic paganism course written by Emma Restall-Orr and reinterpreted by Rev Donna), the Elder Troth Lore Program, Developing Divine Relationships (a devotional polytheist course), Pagan Astrology, Chaos Magick, and a Satanism/Luciferianism 101 course
There are other programs we, as a ministry, get involved with. However our main focus at this time is the prison ministry and our work in the Recovery community. (We will have resources on-site for those wishing to discuss recovery)

Welcome to Crystal Lotus Shoppe. We are a full circle Metaphysical gift and supply shop.
We start with education on the crystals, stones and herbs that we carry. We then teach the use of these products in healing and protection from outside influences such as negativity, environmental pollutants, and atmospheric disturbances. We have Workshops and Classes for the energy healing arts, meditation, sound therapy and a multitude of other fields. Graduates of these classes and workshops can then have the opportunity to offer their services to teach others. We believe that knowledge and understanding breeds conversation and tolerance for all spiritual beliefs and growth.
Our shop currently offers the Services of Tarot Readings, Ko-Laim-ni and Reiki healing, Massage Therapy including Aura cleansing and Chakra realignment. We also have a Holistic Life Coach and organic, WV grown herbs, tinctures, mists and balms from WV Holistic Momma product lines.

We have begun planning and getting ready for Betaine in the forest 2017, the counsel has meet and we are awaiting coonskin park to open registration for the park on the 12th of January. We are looking at the first two Saturdays of May but it is not set yet, we will post the date as soon as we have it set.
We have started a Go Fund me campaign So that we will be able to have everything that has been known as beltaine in the Forest. If the funds are not raised. We will still have beltaine in the Forest. But will not be able to have everything as we have had in the past. As you know we are a total donation supported event. We are one of the few pagan events in West Virginia.
