Besom Apothecary

At BESOM APOTHECARY we work extremely hard to fill our store with unique gifts and one of a kind items. While our shop is a non-traditional Apothecary, we carry herbs, plants, loose tea, candles, crystals, incense, oils, spell kits, natural products and much more.

All of our designer teas were created by us and sold exclusively at BESOM APOTHECARY. Not only are they delicious, they are healthy for you. We have included teas that support mental focus, mental health, cold and flu, pregnancy and female health, along with an amazing hang over tea. Several of our teas can be served hot or cold. Stop by and grab a free cup of our Spell Binder to sip on while you shop. 

Supporting cruelty-free products, these products tend to be healthier, and contain significantly less chemicals than others on the market... ye harm none. Carrying a variety of women's beauty products as well as a line for the men too.  Double edged razors, to shaving soap we have you covered. 

We live in a world that demands so much from us. Self love is often last on our never ending list. Our focus is you. Helping with healing, self love, and the push to help you be your fabulous self.


Melissa Alex

White Light Healer, Sound Therapy

I met Lorie 15 years ago where she began to help me heal from an emotional trauma. Our advisor/client relationship developed into a friendship. Lorie has taught me so much and helped me understand how being empathetic affects my moods as well as how other peoples energy can either drain me or help me recharge. She taught me how to energize my mind, body and soul.
After many life changes and so much growth mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We believe that the universe has opened up the pathway and it's showing us that it's time for the birth of BESOM APOTHECARY.
I'm so excited to continue to grow along side of you.


Lorie Starr 

Psychic, Medium, Clairvoyant, Healer, Spiritual Advisor, Hypnotherapist, Ordained Minister

I have always been a very spiritual person; I believe that the universe has a way of guiding us forward through our lives with the help of spirits and angels. I was blessed with the gift of being able to connect with the spirit world, and love having the opportunity to connect my clients with their own universal current.
My focus is to bring forth awareness and healing through love, and to teach others how to open up their own spiritual potential. BESOM APOTHECARY has been in the works ever since Melissa and I met. We share the same desire to help our clients on their spiritual journey.
With over 35 years of professional services in psychic reading, spiritual advisor, life coaching, past life regression, and crystal/herb healing. I have also worked with law enforcement and other world renown psychics in helping to locate missing children. I believe in traditional (passed down) ways, with the hope to teach others and keep these traditions from being lost.

Lorie Starr is amazing!!!
She has been giving me readings for 11 years now.
She tells me things before I can even ask. I will ask questions in my mind and she will answer every question in order. She has gotten me through so many hard times and has provided so much clarity.
I highly recommend her and am so happy to know this beautiful soul. Love and light ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

Absolutely wonderful shop. The tea is magnificent and the best loose leaf I've found in the area. Spell Binder and Dark Fae are my two favorites. Accept the complimentary cup when you visit! They also have an extensive selection of jewelry, tea accessories, crystals, and general apothecary goods.
