Bergamot, also known as Bee Balm is a flower I remember from trips to my Great
Grandmothers in late summer. The colors and smells from these flowers are so
tremendously impressive. You will always see bees and butterfly’s hovering around
them. Bergamot depending on the flowers have flavors that hint of orange, lemon, and
sweet mint. I have always loved teas made from Bergamot.
Bergamot was used in many of my Great Grandmothers love spells charms and
bags. I remember going along beside her as she would go pick just the right flowers and
leaves for the magick she was working and teas she would brew.
The hundreds of bee’s that were flying around the brightly colored flowers
seemed to always begin chasing me. They never bother my Great Grandmother, but they hated me.
I imagine that’s probably where Bergamot got the name Bee Balm, and the bee’s
still don’t like to sharing this one.

My Great Grandmother was into her latter ninety’s when she pasted. One of the
remarkable things about her was her beautiful hair. Even at ninety+ she had healthy
looking long hair. It had turned to a dark silvery gray but even then thick and healthy.
Her hair still long below her waist worn in a twisted braid around her head. She would
use an infusion made of waters and oil made with Bergamot leaves and flowers on her
An infusion of Bergamot has a wonderful scent of flowers and has healing powers

Bergamot essential oil

Bergamot soothes irritability and lifts depression or apathy, encouraging gentle but honest communication and the manifestation of a person’s true potential and inner self.

A citrus oil, bergamot mixes well with frankincense and ylang-ylang.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries had its humble beginnings as an idea of a few artisans and craftsmen who enjoy performing with live steel fighting. As well as a patchwork quilt tent canvas. Most had prior military experience hence the name.


Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries.


Vendertainers that brought many things to a show and are know for helping out where ever they can.

As well as being a place where the older hand made items could be found made by them and enjoyed by all.

We expanded over the years to become well known at what we do. Now we represent over 100 artisans and craftsman that are well known in their venues and some just starting out. Some of their works have been premiered in TV, stage and movies on a regular basis.

Specializing in Medieval, Goth , Stage Film, BDFSM and Practitioner.

Patchwork Merchant Mercenaries a Dept of, Ask For IT was started by artists and former military veterans, and sword fighters, representing over 100 artisans, one who made his living traveling from fair to festival vending medieval wares. The majority of his customers are re-enactors, SCAdians and the like, looking to build their kit with period clothing, feast gear, adornments, etc.

Likewise, it is typical for these history-lovers to peruse the tent (aka mobile store front) and, upon finding something that pleases the eye, ask "Is this period?"

A deceitful query!! This is not a yes or no question. One must have a damn good understanding of European history (at least) from the fall of Rome to the mid-1600's to properly answer. Taking into account, also, the culture in which the querent is dressed is vitally important. You see, though it may be well within medieval period, it would be strange to see a Viking wearing a Caftan...or is it?

After a festival's time of answering weighty questions such as these, I'd sleep like a log! Only a mad man could possibly remember the place and time for each piece of kitchen ware, weaponry, cloth, and chain within a span of 1,000 years!! Surely there must be an easier way, a place where he could post all this knowledge...

Traveling Within The World is meant to be such a place. A place for all of these artists to keep in touch and directly interact with their fellow geeks and re-enactment hobbyists, their clientele.
