Janel A Ricks
Hello, I am the Curator and Owner of Alchemy7, LLC. I made my first candle in November of 2020 due to delayed deliveries to my primary Metaphysical Store. Thanksgiving weekend, Cyber Monday, I placed my products on Etsy, a third-party shopping site; it turned into a 14 product line within 2 months. April 2021, I decided to attend my first Pop-Up shows, weighing my options, I cancelled my attendance at the 2 private shows opting for one location in the Perimeter Mall located in Dunwoody, GA. To my surprise, I had an overwhelming response earning $2,000 within 2 days. I turned that money into a 6 month lease on a cart.
Listening to my new clients, the need for a Metaphysical Store in a mall on the Northside of town was dire, for I was the only one. Also, I am the only store on the north side of town that dresses their candles, creates alchemy spelled & manifestation candles by hand with instruction. This has lead my company into a 50 product line with 97 variations within 6 months and we’re still growing.
I am an eclectic witch with the gift of sight, baby medium and heavy channeling. I do not belong to any community as of yet. I do plan to obtain a Herbalist certification to add more quality to my products while expanding creativity. I am a converted Catholic from the African Methodist Episcopal Church (A.M.E) and have found that spirituality and the church have a distinct difference as well as having their similarities: GOD first.
ALCHEMY7 was created to honor ancient traditions to promote holistic spiritual solutions to those in search of higher spiritual truth beyond that found in conventional, traditional, fundamentalist, or dogmatic religions while encouraging the individual, metaphysical perspectives for creating a diversity of new approaches to spiritual practices; thus, ensuring the continuation, preservation, expansion, and integrity of the client’s teachings. As well as being confident to share their gifts as we share ours to enrich the Metaphysical community.
