It should only be bought if you can not make one yourself. For a very long time I refused to sell these items. After discussing it with my teachers and having so many people ask me to make them because they can't I have reconsidered. When a medicine bag is made it should have as little to do with money as possible a simple piece of buckskin scrap will do and I try to keep my prices on them down as best I can. The items you place in it are for your knowledge alone, nobody should ever touch your medicine bag but you or people you are very VERY close to. I was taught that every human being has a spirit with medicine just as every animal. Medicine bags are not made to show off they were made to hang below the shirt in the center of your chest over your heart. They don't need to be extravagant or beautifully decorated plain and simple is humble and best. This is what I have been taught about medicine bags AMA ᏣᎳᎩ
