One of a kind Poison Herb Pendants by OCCVLTA (Spain/Catalonia)
The pendants are filled with dried Mandrake, Henbane, Belladonna, Fly agaric, Sage and more. A special treat are the dried flowers of Henbane and Belladonna, which have been carefully plucked by hand and dried at our altar. From flower to fruit and seed, from root to leaf, the pendants carry versatile links to some of our most powerful plant allies.
The shells of the pendants consist of a durable glass imitation, which is lighter and not as fragile as real glass. They are silver framed and come in different forms, from round eyeglass to gothic window style to slender tube vial and measure ca. 4-7 cm.

The poisonous plant genus Aconitum consists of at least a hundred different species and has an array of legends and folklore attributed to it.
Sometimes called ‘Queen of Poisons’ or ‘Plant Arsenic’, similar to how arsenic is considered a ‘King of Poisons’.
A distinction sometimes found concerns the names Monkshood and Wolfsbane. Some argue the original Wolfsbane is the white or yellow-flowered species Aconitum lycoctonum whereas the blue flowering Monkshood, Aconitum napellus is probably the better known of the two species and it is frequently found in medieval monastery gardens. The two species contain different poisons, which are however similar in effect.
Mythology and History
The Greek word akónitos is composed of ak = pointed and kônos = cone, an akon being a dart or javelin, perhaps a reference to the use as an arrow poison. Theophrastus suggests the name derived from the town of Aconæ (today assumed to be near Karadeniz Ereğli in Turkey). It may also have been named after Mount Akonitos in Pontus (Asia Minor), where the plant is said to have grown from the spittle of Cerberus, the three-headed watchdog of Hades, when the folkhero Heracles drew up the beast from his infernal abode. Homer (800 bc) gives the first account of this myth in the Illiad. Eight centuries later Ovid embellishes the story in Metamorphoses VIIContinue reading Aconite Info
Finally I could find fitting glass vessels for the remaining Aconite roots! These are tubes with a flat base and a natural cork stopper for sealing. They are 16 cm in height and perfect for herbal fetishes. A seal hand-inked on a cleansed piece of laid paper and info about the Aconite herb is included with each root fetish. – SOLD

High John the Conqueror is a legendary folk hero of Afro-American traditions. He represents freedom, strength, sovereignity and above all cunning. It is believed that by rubbing the root named after him his spirit can be contacted and petitioned for help in different matters concerning the struggle for a better life, love, wealth and good luck in gambling. The root is said to come from a species of Morning Glory (Ipomoea), either Ipomoea jalapa or Ipomoea purga. They are usually round or egg-shaped, of a dark brown color and have a shrivelled surface (because of this they have been compared to the balls of dark-skinned men). The root plays an important roll in many lines of Afro-American folk magic and often greater value is placed on the shape of such root than on its size or weight. When used in spellwork, the root must be whole and sustained with libations of alcohol, anointed with oils or offered tobacco (as if you would be giving these offerings to the actual folk hero).
The roots offered here come from an established American supplier. I have been thinking long whether to take them into the Teufelskunst store and finally decided yes, they definitely belong here too! Some of these I am making into charms wrapped in red silk, together with Devil’s Shoestring root. They can also be bought single by those who wish to make their own charms or use them for magical oils. Sometimes also a pair of two equal looking roots is used. Above is a photo of all High John the Conqueror roots currently available (prices for single roots, root pairs and vials as given).
PS: I am still waiting for the photos of the English Easter Yew Wands. I appologize to those who had already reserved one. Photos may come by the end of the month (when the wands have been resurrected from their graves).
Devil thy name, Trickster at the Crossroads of Midnight Come forth, Corpse-pale Eidolon of the Osseous Field Ever-poised in thy Goat-black Cowl that shrouds Mortality, Master of the Passage ‘twixt Wax & Wane do I seek. Thirteen times Widders around the Tree do I turn Here, sheltered ‘neath the boughs of your Faithful Kin: The Cypress and the Yew, I do lay the Furrow of Mortality Wherein the Maw of Void makes sweet the promise of Annihilation And sundry veils rent so rouse the Blessing of Certain Death.
Saviour thy name, Leveller at the Cross of Midday Convoke here, Golden-toned Christ of the Paradise Found Ever-steady in meagre Lamb-white Fleece that cloths Eternity, King of the Pathway of Virture & Vice do I hunt. Thrice times halved ‘til the 3rd day the loaf do I break Here, knelt ‘neath the married beams of the Rood: Transference & Transcendence, I do raise the Ridge of Eternity Wherein the Gates of Heaven make bitter the dreams of Man And all sinful debts settled so pay the Boon of Life Eternal.
13 Wands, harvested from 13 old Yew trees on the Midnight leading into Good Friday, under the light of the waning moon. Due payments of libation, bread and blood have been served to the guardian of the ghoulish yet immensely beautiful trees. For three days and nights the bread is being broken to them and their wood prepared. Each wand is then cleansed in the waters of the sacred Heathen Spring of Avalon. Finally braids taken from the red cloth of the crucifix put out on the Good Friday and the white cloth draped over the cross to symbolise the resurrection on Sunday are bound around them.
The wands are not carved or varnished and can be crafted and shaped further by those who do not have access to this special type of Olde Yew wood from trees, which have been guarding the graves and crossroads of life and death for centuries. There are alltogether 10 wands available for sale:
5 wands with a braid of 2 red 1 white – the Wands of Harrowing
5 wands with a braid of 2 white 1 red – the Wands of Hallowing
Attached to the end of each wand is also one tail-feather of a Raven, the Prophet of Man and the Oracle of Hades, gathered through a beautiful specimen found during a sojourn in the Forest, a gift from the Sylvan Realm. A satchel of Yew needles and bark will accompany each wand, with a hand-numbered label.
The Yew is the Man in Black at the Crossroads, the Patron of the Souls kept in She’ol and also of the Ancestors. It is also the tree of Dark Resurrection and thus sometimes the Man in Black is viewed crucified to a Yew arbor.
The wands are a kind offer by woodwose, wanderer, sorcerer, word cunner and friend Ash Nostro Morg.
Info, pictures and prices will follow after Easter. Only one wand per customer.

This Incense has been composed during the course of several nights. It contains a blend of Solar Herbs (a selection of the herbs, spices and flowers pictured above) combined with Frankincense Aden. The herbs have partly been hand-picked from the garden and the wild, were left to dry slowly and have been blended with an equal amount of Frankincense Aden (Boswellia carteri). Burn this incense for Meditation, Centering and Concentration. For best results burn ca. 3-4 teaspoons on hot coals and then air the room thoroughly (for at least 1 hour). Your room will then be filled with a very pleasant scent for several days and you will feel its healing and uplifting effects on your body and mind.
Content: 60 ml
The Incense can be ordered with a Hand-Sewn Cloth Bag with Sun Seal. Comes with short introductions to each herb and info on the Frankincense used.
Price per portion (without cloth bag): €6 + shipping Price including cloth bag with Gold Seal: €15 + shipping NEW – with Info Booklet: + €1

Custom-Made Incense Blends & Powders
We will mix you almost any Incense Blend or Powder customized for your needs, in large and small quantities. May it be incense for personal use at home, incense pouches to sell along with a publication of yours or large incense amounts needed for a performance. We will assist you.
The prices for our services will always stay fair and reasonable. However, you must consider that we too have costs and it takes time to carefully compose an incense that is later supposed to actually add the right vibrations to your ritual or meditation. In addition we care about presentation. You can have your incense delivered to you in a simple labeled plastic bag, hand-sewn and marked cloth bag, box or jar.
Consider always that shipping costs will be influenced by weight and size. Jars or glass vessels weigh more, must be packed extra-safe and take more space than a flat bag or box.

Depend on weight, size and destination country. Ask for exact shipping fees when you order! We never charge more than what it actually costs to ship. We ship only via registered mail.
