About Us

Phytognosis was born out of a need for genuine high-quality botanicals at reasonable prices. As a practitioner of leechcraft and wortcunning, I was frequently unable to find authentic ingredients necessary for my workings. As an experienced practitioner of this ancient Art, I am able to bring that same quality to my clients and customers.

The prefix phyto is Latin for plant or vegetation. Gnosis is a Greek word that means knowledge, usually signifying spiritual or mystically generated knowledge. Taken together, the word Phytognosis means spiritual knowledge obtained directly from and through plants.

Phytognosis specializes in rare and unique plant resins, woods, oils, and leaves for use during ritual, meditation, spiritual workings and personal enjoyment. We also carry several ready to use products for the new practitioner.
