To Zara B. I read you are a practioner I need to know if you actually take/see people.
I have been in this store and watched it for like 30 years and it was a great part of the Paterson comunity seems times change the store has always been well stocked with great items but as far as santeria or even palo worship they fall short very short to be adequate .. i dont recomend this botanica there prices are high the service is great though I mean they can help you find what you need but then again i find what i need elsewhere.. i would recomend stores like azteca in JC or Olofi's which is now Olorun for fresh herbs just to note i am a practioner of both palo and Santeria so i do shop around allot and have seen a few botanicas
shame Lazaro left Paterson but then again with those prices i figure not to Santerios like myself where happy .. then again if you have the money to spend ..so be it ...
FYI .. you can find anything you need in the many botanicas in JC to name a few Milagrosa Olorun Azteca ...Ellegua for readings I would ask for good people and be specific on the type of read you want ..tarot caracole ... make sure you aquire honest people and ask many question when you go
even shop online botanica yuroba 7 is excellent for items and well priced for fresh erbs thee best ..great quality and quantity
TO ORLANDO – I HAVE BEEN GOING THERE FOR YEARS ,LOVE THE FAMILY ESPECIALY ,ORLANDO, DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, BUT I HOPE & PRAY THAT YOU WILL, FIND YOU'R WAY. LOVE & BLESS ALL. LA VIEJA
BEST BOTANICA EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! – I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THIS BOTANICA FOR YEARS THEY ARE LIKE FAMILY. ONE PERSON WROTE IF THEY CANT FIND IT PR0B DOESNT EXIST. AS FOR THE OWNERS, EMPLOYEES HOW DARE YOU INSINUATE THAT THEY ARE RUDE, THEY ARE EVERYTHING BUT. IF YOU ARE GOING FOR A READING 0F ANY KIND WHEHTER THERE OR ANYWHERE ELSE YOU HAVE TO GO WITH AN OPEN MIND AND HEART. I HAVE RECEIVED N0THING BUT KINDNESS FR0M EVERYONE EVEN ORLANDO. NOW I HAVE BEEN TO OTHER BOTANICAS AND FELT VERY UNEASY AND WHENEVER I GO THERE I FEEL LIKE I AM AT HOME. THEY GO WELL OUT OF THEIR WAY TO GET ANYTHING I NEED THAT THEY DONT HAVE IN THE STORE. WHEN I MOVED OUT OF STATE AND WENT TO LOCAL STATES THEY WERE THE NASTIEST PPL I EVER CAME ACROSS AND FELT VERY UNEASY FROM MOMENT I WALKED IN. SO WHEN I MOVE OUT OF STATE IM GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT WHATEVER I NEED THEY WILL SEND T0 ME AND YES THEY CAN SHIP JUST ABOUT ANYWHERE IN THE COUNTRY. LORENZO AND THE REST OF THE CREW THAT WORK THERE ARE A "GODSEND" GOD BLESS BOTANICA SAN LAZARO AND I AM A CUST0MER FOR LIFE. LOVE YOU GUYS. YOU ROCK. MATTER OF FACT ON MY WAY THERE NOW...........
BEST OF THE BEST – My sister and I went in to get a few candles, incense etc. I walked out so happy to have found this place. It was amazing, they have everything you could want and more. It's great. The people make it even better and not just the owners or employees but also the clients. They were very helpful and a pleasure to do business with. I plan on ordering for my business from them. Very impressed!! Very HAPPY to have found them and very fortunate.
Go take a look you will not be sorry!
Official response to Tarot Queen. – Dear Tarot Queen,
Our family has been serving the spiritual needs of all who enter out doors for over fifty (50) years. On behalf of our family we would like to apologize for what you say to have experienced at our store. Rest assure we are responding because we care for each and every individual that walks in through our doors.

Again we do apologize for your inconvenience and would love to have you as our guest at one of our upcoming events.
Yours in Spirit,
Worst Botanica in the Tri-State Area!!! – Please read this review.
I truly am a big believer of tarot readings and the entire botanica beliefs. I have been to numerous botanica's in the tri-state area as well as along the West Coast. Through my experience I have found some good places and other even greater places.
However NEVER have I had an experience as BAD as I did at the SAN LAZARO BOTANICA IN CLIFTON, NJ on Crooks Ave. I made an appoint about 2 weeks ago. I called the day of my appointment to confirm and I was told I was not in the book , a few minutes after I was put on hold I was told that I am in the book and there are 2 people after me. An individual named Orlando would see me and he had more than eneough time because he was there till 7. When I showed up, I waited about 5-10 minutes and was told Orlando was upstairs...a lady went to get him. She never came back down, then a young man asked me if i needed help. I explained I was there for a reading, he then went upstairs to get Orlando. He came down 2 mins later to randomly tell me that Orlando had unexpectedly left due to an emergency!!!! Are u kidding me????? After I left work early, drove all the way to Clifton, waited around and was told Orlando is upstairs..i'm then rudely told he left and that they have no idea when he would be back?? They then referred me to some lady instead. What kind of garbage place is taht? Please do not even waste your time going there..it is a disgrace! They are liars! I even had my friend call them the same day to make an appointment and they told her they have no idea when the guy would be available and to call back.. Umm how about you shut your doors down because you are the worse Botanica around!! if you want an amazing lady to read your tarots and be honest and true to her faith, then visit Mimi in Newark. Her place is in the nicer area of Newark and she welcomes walk ins. She takes about 20-25 mins per customer and is very genuine and sincere. People have been going to her shop for decades. She is truly amazing. Here is her number 973-485-5767. I will certainly never go back to the half-ass ran shop in Clifton again! Be ware not to waste your time and/or money!
dont blame the religion – the owners of this botanica are customers of mine in the beauty supply I work in. They are obviously kind people and if you have a problem saying that the spell kits they sell dont work you cant blame the person who sold it to you, you can only blame yourself. Any form of spirituality wont work for a person unless they truely believe they will work if you have no faith in your heart then whatever you are trying to do will not work.
BOTANICAS INFO – CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE GIVE ME THE PLACE PHONE NUMBER AND ADDRESS, BECAUSE CALLED TO THE PHONE NUMBER IS POSTED BUT IT TELLS ME IS DISCONECTED
We Love the Botanica San Lazaro – As customers of the Botanica San Lazaro we have always been completely satisified!
Marge, Orlando, Lorenzo and the staff of the Botanica are always friendly, helpful and willing to share their advice and knowledge when asked.
They have a huge inventory that caters to whatever Spiritual path one follows.
If you are looking for something and the Botanica San Lazaro doesn't have it, it probably doesn't exist!
Tracy and Ray Frasche
