        Botanicas: Markets of the Divine | Religion & Ethics Newsweekly

        This video from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly explores the emergence and popularity of botanicas, shops that feature a variety of spiritual and religious merchandise and services, including candles, incense, potions, powders, icons, statues and consultations. The botanicas offer immigrants in the United States a place to go to maintain and sustain their customs and beliefs. Indio Products, one of the largest botanicas in Southern California, is featured, as is an interview with Ysamur Flores, an expert on Caribbean and Latino folklore, who discusses how botanicas reflect a uniquely Caribbean approach to faith.
