Häxan is a new collaborative endeavour between Johannes Björn Gårdbäck and Minta Karlsson. Häxan aims to revive the use of and make available traditional tools of Nordic folk magic, referred to as Trolldom.


Gårdbäck, native to Sweden, has dedicated the last 25 years to preserving and teaching Nordic folk magic. All Häxan products are directly informed by Gårdbäck's work and research - much of which can be found on his website - www.therootdoctor.se - or his book,  "Trolldom - Spells and Methods of the Norse Folk magic tradition".


Karlsson is an apprentice of Gårdbäck and student of Völva Kari Tauring, and CEO of Needfire LLC. Karlsson works to turn the raw material and vast knowledge provided by Gårdbäck into elegant and accessible Nordic magic materia for Häxan customers.

Häxan plans to release their products Fall 2020, including Vätteljus, Terra Sigillata, Recreations of Traditional Scandinavian Apothecary Incenses, to name but a few. To get the first news of new products, fill out the form below to be added to our special mailing list!
