Best energy vortex outfitters: ROOTS OF THE SUN

This shop/community space feels like it belongs in some enchanted Sequoia tree hollow Out West. Fortunately for us, it’s right here, tucked away on a side street in St. Pete’s Grand Central District, offering a wonderful range of products. These include locally blended loose teas, herbal tinctures, handmade beauty products you won’t find elsewhere and jewelry handcrafted from crystals and fossils (which are probably infused with moonlight). Not that you need an excuse to check this place out, but if current events got your smudge stick burnt to a blackened stump, you can replenish your sage supply here. 17 21st. St. N., St. Petersburg. 850-443-2523, rootsofthesun.com. —KB
