Really enjoyed visiting the New Orleans Healing Center where the Botanica is located, and seeing the dedication of the International Shrine of Marie Laveau there, which is right next to the Botanica. Great place overall!

I loved this little spot! I wanted to find a spiritual/metaphysical shop with some authenticity, and this was definitely it! So much to look at within the small space, that I didn't know where to start! They had a lot more unique items than the shops in the French Quarter area, which felt overly commercial to me. Lots of herbs,... More

I have to say that my personal relationship with Sally made this trip well worth while. she was setting up for a perastile that evening. we say the chalking on the floor, the installation of the pole and even got a reading. I suggest you go to the Isle of Salvation and let sister sally tell you all about your... More

Whether you are a practitioner or just curious, this place is top notch. If you want a touristy store, this isn't for you. There are tons of shops in the French Quarter that would satisfy the tourist itch. I had to take a taxi away from our hotel to get here (address listed here is wrong-look up on their site;... More

We did a reading there with Jeffrey (who was awesome) and was pretty accurate. It was about half an hour and quite different from the normal tarot/psychic reads. We would totally do it again!

On our recent trip to New Orleans we wanted to have our cards read and get a gris gris. We went to a variety of places and just didn't feel right. Some had the reading area right in the store and many were very commercial. There was so much information we didn't know where to start. I had read about... More

I really wanted a reading on my first trip to NOLA that wasn't in the French Quarter...something felt unauthentic about the location. So after some research there was a group of us that called Island of Salvation and Geoff answered the phone. We initially called about a reading with Sallie but she was unavailable. We figured that if Geoff was... More

We first visited the Island of Salvation Botanica at its old location on Piety Street. It was charming, dark, and intimate. The new location at the New Orleans Healing Center on St. Claude is larger and sun-filled. This new space also captures the ambiance of its owner, Sallie Ann Glassman. Her kindness, gentle spirit and true interest in making the... More
