Planting Trees for a Better Tomorrow
As an herbalist and green/kitchen witch, the environment has always been something I am very passionate about. Our Mother Earth has given us a place to live, a way to sustain ourselves, and everything we need to stay healthy and happy. I am a huge advocate for reforestation and planting trees where they are needed. I tend to my garden and I make sure to give back to the earth for it has given me so much.
With this idea of a better tomorrow, I know we need to take action now to replenish our earth before it is too late. When I founded Cauldron Emporium I knew I wanted to do more than spread my knowledge of herbalism and natural living. I want to make a difference and help others make a difference as well.
I have partnered up with One Tree Planted to reforest our world.
Here is how it works:
Every sale above $10 will plant at least one tree! (made in person or online)
If you want to make the biggest impact possible, please shop the One-for-One category where each item purchased plants one tree!
Purchasing items in this category that are in other sections of the online store will still donate one-for-one trees :) I just made a section where it would be easy to find the one-for-one items without having to search too much.
My goal is to plant at least 1,000 trees this year and I know together we can do it.
All trees planted this year will be in North America including Canada, USA, and Mexico.
Share your goodies on social media and use #CEtrees
About One Tree Planted
Since their establishment, they have been dedicated to making it easier for both individuals and businesses to give back to the environment, create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity, and help reforestation efforts.
Trees have a wide range of benefits. One TreePlanted focuses on what they call the 6 Pillars of Reforestation to explain why trees are important:
Air - Trees help to clean the air we breathe. Through their leaves and bark, they absorb harmful pollutants and release clean oxygen for us to breathe.
Water - Trees play a key role in capturing rainwater and reducing the risk of natural disasters like floods and landslides.
Biodiversity - A single tree can be home to hundreds of species of insect, fungi, moss, mammals, and plants.
Social Impact - From arborists to loggers and researchers, the job opportunities provided by the forestry industry are endless. We don’t just rely on trees for work, though. Sustainable tree farming provides timber to build homes and shelters, and wood to burn for cooking and heating. Food-producing trees provide fruit, nuts, berries, and leaves for consumption by both humans and animals, and pack a powerful nutritional punch.
Health - It’s impossible to ignore that feeling of elation you get while walking through a calm, quiet forest. Trees help reduce stress and anxiety, and allow us to reconnect with nature.
Climate - Trees help cool the planet by sucking in and storing harmful greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide into their trunks, branches, and leaves — and releasing oxygen back into the atmosphere.
I believe all of these are imperative factors to our human existence and cohabiting the earth so I am proud to support OTP and their efforts to reforest the earth.
If you would like to help plant trees directly, I would encourage you to visit OneTreePlanted.org and make a donation :)

I opened shop back in 2020. I had been practicing herbalism for my private use for about 10 years before I decided to take the next step. I would say that even though my shop is relatively new, my business began about 6 years ago when I started to attend local crafter markets to sell my remedies and crafts. I learned so much in that process and love what I do. It's been a long journey getting here and I am sure it will be a long journey ahead.
I want to share with y'all my witchy journey. I am working on educational posts for beginning witches and you will also find some posts about cool items I find and spells I take particular interest in. I hope I am able to provide some interesting reads for you!
Since I was young, I have always felt a call for nature and witchcraft. I was born in Mexico, and lived there for quite some time before my family moved to the USA. Every time someone asks me why I do what I do, I often think about my years in Mexico where I learned a lot from my grandmother. She used to tell me that cuts and scrapes could be healed with a poultice or salve and everything else could be healed with good food. She had a big garden with lots of herbs, fruiting plants and chickens. We always had a bounty to choose from and experiment. I would help her cook in the kitchen or play outside under the trees. I think since then, when I was maybe 8 or 9, I already knew I would always want to be around plants and use cooking to heal. I strayed a bit from my herbalist path for a few years with the move and adjusting to a completely new life but my calling was strong and I went back to it.
Being an herbalist and green/kitchen witch, I focus most of my practice on green witchery. I absolutely love plants and their medicinal uses as well as other healing properties. As I am growing my shop, I am making sure to extend my products to include these wonderful benefits. I plan on eventually doing classes to teach people how to craft their own remedies and learn about the wonderful world of plants. While I work on my curriculums, I am working on simple home kits people can buy to get started and learn from home now. I would love for everyone to be able to treat and heal themselves using nature’s bounty. I also very much believe in the power of crystals. They hold energy within and remind us to keep our intentions strong.
I would like for everyone to know that I am passionate about helping people, animals and our environment. One of the reasons I began my business was so that I could spread awareness for a healthier and more natural lifestyle with others. I hope my shop brings all visitors, shoppers or not, a little bit more knowledge and that my products help them achieve their goals. If anyone needs help, I am always happy to have a text conversation or phone call. The support of my community allows me to continue my journey but the health of the community is the real goal. I have big plans for the shop and I hope people will benefit from what I have to offer.
