The real thing - not a tourist shop. Part of New Orleans Healing Center, this incredible store is filled from floor to ceiling with potents, herbs, religious and spiritualist items from every corner of the world. The knowledgeable owner Sallie Glassman will tell you what...More
Come to visit Sallie, who is wise beyond her years. Fascinating place to visit, to understand a different side of New Orleans history and culture. You will find things in this shop that you really can’t find anywhere else. Visit with an open mind. Also,...More

I adore Priestess Manbo Sallie Ann Glassman and Gary. The space is beautiful especially Ricardo Pustino's Marie Laveau right before the entrance. So many things are offered here. Not touristy. Healing. Very knowledgeable and credible people. Her art is beautiful and her gifts are divine....More
Sally Ann Glassman is wonderful to meet, her readings are beautiful down to earth and reasonable .. The store is small but packed with lovely things for every taste or subject . She's not always in and you should book ahead for a meeting .
Oils are petroleum based, bulk herbs are so old, they have no medicinal value left, entire store is just to promote the owner's bad art and very personal, incorrect beliefs of an ancient religion. Go if you don't mind spending a lot on very little.
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!
