Tilo owns a shop in Oakland, California, where she sells her herbs and spices. But Tilo isn't just a shopkeeper; she is also the Mistress of Spices. With her knowledge of their secret powers this high priestess of wisdom and magic helps customers find answers to the questions of love, loss and loneliness. When Tilo herself falls in love with a visitor to her shop, she has to choose between personal happiness and keeping her mystical gift.
