RITUAL... it reminds me of Harry Potter and a store in Diagon Alley


I saw this quaint little shop 2 years ago when I went to The Collective for Bloom Arts Festival 2 (see part 1 and part 2). And I seriously felt as if I was strolling in the cobbled wizarding alley and shopping area of Diagon Alley! I love the shop very much and I'm glad I spent long minutes inside it with my friends before we went to the galleries. Too bad though, I didn't bring a lot of money with me that night so I wasn't able to buy anything from Ritual. But my friend Haze bought some soaps.

"Ritual is a sustainable general store at The Collective. Sans plastic bags and bottles. Organic food, green cleaning, and interesting tools for living."
If you want to find out more about Ritual, you can go here.




The store's interior is definitely memorable. It's cozy, and relaxing, and I just really love the whole ambiance of the place. Just check-out where the cashier is located (photo above)! Plus, Ritual has this scent that is actually very pleasant.




The shop does not only sell organic products, oils, and green cleaning stuff for they also sell some lovely essentials for your life like these tea cup sets and paper goodies (envelopes, pencils, vintage tags, etc.) perfect for snail mails!


I don't even know what this is but I find it interesting. To be honest, Ritual appears to me like an apothecary shop and I'm loving it!




Oils, oils, oils... Massage oils, mists.
I need that traveller's mist and that procrastinator's massage oil! I think the procrastinator's massage oil is really made for me. haha!




I was tempted to touch and feel everything with my bare hands! Nakakagigil lahat ng products!



And I wanted to take this super huge dream catcher home!

I don't know if there's something behind those old traditional windows, like if there's a storage room in there, or if it's just placed up there for design purposes but I love that it's aesthetically pleasing.



Everything about this shop is beautiful and I'm planning to go back here (and I'll bring money. haha. so I can shop 'til I drop!).
