About us

They say that necessity is the mother of invention, and it was in this spirit that TheFrater’s Shop of Natural Remedies was founded two years ago. It all began when three friends came together and realised that our need for high-quality magickal supplies was not being catered for by any existing website or outlet. One occultist, one herbalist and one expert in crystals, together we decided to pool our expert knowledge and experience to come together with one simple aim – to offer people a high-quality, dependable source of the various items that we struggled to find when we were starting out on our magickal journey.

One beneficial consequence of our combined decades of experience is that we have a sound understanding of our magickal craft. We know what works (and just as importantly what doesn’t). The elemental building blocks that we use in the construction of our magickal experiences play a vital role, so we have personally sourced and selected the finest ingredients available. 100% organic herbs and spices. The finest scented oils, hand-blended to our own bespoke recipe in accordance with the sacred laws of the Pauline Art. High-quality incense resin from around the world to cleanse and sanctify your ritual space. A wide selection of sacred crystals and stones for the channeling of exalted powers. Premium grade, long-burning candles to cast the purest light on your ritual invocations.

Located in the heart of England in the market town of Newcastle-under-Lyme (by the way, “new” in this context means that the castle was built in the early 12th century!), TheFrater ships worldwide. For those familiar with the medieval poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, we are not far from the magnificent Lud’s Church, which is thought to be the location of the story’s climax, the “Green Chapel”.

Our guiding philosophy is that nature is a great pharmacy and provides us with the tools that we need to maintain a healthy mind, body and soul. At TheFrater we believe that magick is not dead, it is very much alive and thriving in the modern world, you just need to know where to look. You are very welcome to join us on our journey, please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments via the website. We also have a Facebook page which is home to an ever-expanding community of like-minded souls. We would love to see you there sometime soon!
