The Dreamcatcher Shop

The Dreamcatcher was based in Fourways Mall for many years but has now moved to Cedar Square. With their name, you would think this a haven for anyone searching for the perfect dream catcher. However, they have limited options and most of their dream catchers are very large. Although they do have some of the most beautiful dream catchers available in Joburg. The reason to come here is that it is the place to get all the esoteric books you can dream of from learning how to read tarots to the interpretation of dreams. They also have a huge selection of adorable spiritual figurines.

Crystal Spirits

This is a small store hidden away in a corner in Lakefield, Benoni. As soon as you open the door your olfactory senses will be teased with the subtle scents of incense. Unlike most other esoteric stores, this one does not have a vast rainbow of crystals, sticking to just the necessary. Instead, they have wide varieties of candles in every shape, size and scent. They have scented candles, chakra candles, ritual candles and even SPCA candles, where the entire amount spent on the candle gets donated to the Benoni SPCA. There is also a library of spiritual and self-help books and many bracelets, earrings and necklaces. They now also have the convenience of an online store. You can also check out their Facebook page or their app available on Google Play and the App Store to see all the workshops and sale items they have.

House of Isis

Isis is the Egyptian Goddess of wisdom and magic, so it’s appropriate that a store specialising in the occult and spirituality be named for her. Where the other stores on this list are quite spiritual, House of Isis is more pagan. They stock items needed for various pagan rituals like candles, crystal wands, smudge sticks and pendulums. This is also one of the few stores that offers runes; they have rune stones, rune cards, rune sets and rune books. And they stock Ouija boards and dowsing rods, which can be tricky to find. One of the main attractions of this shop, especially for non-pagans, is the jewellery. They have pendants ranging in different cultures from Celtic to voodoo and everything in between.
