Hello, everyone. I'm Jordyn.
I'm an herbalist, tarot reader, writer, and intuitive, and I'm the founder of Mystic Sister. I sell handmade apothecary products (such as herbal teas and tinctures and plant-based skincare) and offer individual tarot readings, but I wanted to expand my range of offerings, and Patreon seems like the perfect place to do so.
My BackgroundMy first spiritual teacher was my mother. She showed me the magic of astrology, crystals, and tarot. She taught me how to trust my intuition, but I mostly kept that side of myself private. I finally decided to offer my magic to others after doing some deep tarot- and soul-work with Lindsay Mack. She helped me realize that if I waited to give back to others until I felt like I knew enough, I would never be ready. So I began offering tarot readings, and those initial offerings sparked something in me.
I had been making my own bath and beauty products for a while, and I loved their healing powers, so I decided to dive even deeper into plant magic. I took Rosemary Gladstar's course on the Science and Art of Herbalism, and learning from Rosemary helped me reconnect to the Earth and her gifts in both practical and spiritual ways. That combination of practicality and spirituality where I find the most powerful rituals and remedies, and thus Mystic Sister was born. I've since been learning both about plants and from them, and I want to share that knowledge here.
Why Patreon?While I offer herbal products and individual tarot readings over at mysticsister.net, I wanted to explore a different way to do what I love while supporting myself financially and also giving back to my community (both locally and on the interwebs). Many of the people who follow Mystic Sister are interested in supporting me and the work I do there but don't necessarily need a full tarot reading or a tea blend. That's where Patreon comes in.
Patreon gives you the ability to support me on a monthly basis and gives me the ability to provide you with great offerings that go beyond the 1-to-1 ratio of what's available at the Mystic Sister website. Instead of you paying me for one tarot reading or one skincare product and that being the end of it, Patreon gives us the ability to develop a continuous relationship where we're constantly giving back to each other. Also, your monthly support allows me to come up with even more amazing offerings that I currently don't have the financial cushion to produce.
If that sounds good to you, please take a look at the various reward levels and pick the one that works for you.
DonationsOnce I reach $500 per month, I will begin donating 5% of my patronage to a different charity every month, the first one being United Plant Savers. In their own words, the mission of United Plant Savers is "to protect native medicinal plants of the United States and Canada and their native habitat while ensuring an abundant renewable supply of medicinal plants for generations to come."
After that first donation, I will update Patrons on the charity of the month and will gladly accept any recommendations for where donations should go.
