While the greater Los Angeles area has no shortage of Santeria Botanicas, this one was an eccentric among eccentrics.
All true witch doctors know that to pick up everything one might need for potions and curses, Million Dollar is the place. As you fill your basket with the herbs and phallic candles required for the love potion you need, don’t forget bath oils to stave off the inevitable gossip from your dalliance. A pharmacia as well, among Santa Muerte figurines and baby Jesus dolls you can also stock up on tampons, hair gel, and chapstick.
