Do you offer consultations? Can you look at my chart?

Given time constraints (among other things!), Kaitlin (👋 hi, that’s me!) cannot offer consultations or custom recommendations based on natal charts or most other factors.

For guidance, please see this article 🔮

For remedial suggestions based on natal factors, we recommend Austin Coppock, Austin’s year II graduates, Freedom Cole, or any of the referrals Freedom may make.

Can I add to an order that has already been placed?

Yes! As long as the order has not shipped, you are welcome to place additional orders.

After they get packed, postage will be purchased, and you will be promptly refunded any excess.

Multiples are typically flagged for consolidation by the shipping platform automatically, so there is no need create a support ticket notifying us of dual+ orders (we’re almost never manning the support portal in real time in the workroom, so thank you for the consideration but it just ends up cluttering the inbox!)

If we miss combining them, Sphere + Sundry’s policy is to refund your excess shipping regardless 🤓

You are definitely invited to write in if you feel a refund has been missed, however! We enjoy offering custom services of this nature, but it does increase the odds of a fuck up…


Will you come on my Podcast/ YouTube/ &c?

You can ask (and thank you!), but probably not 😅

Keeping operations moving is a more than full time job, so at this point my focus is best kept on the actual work over media + promotion.

If you would like to send an invitation, a list is being kept for if/ when this changes. The offers and opportunities are genuinely appreciated!

There is so much more I would be doing if the time were available…
PLUS, I am weirdly shy 🙈

If I write asking a question that has already been answered in this FAQ will the answer be different?

Nope 😹

Still need help? Contact us…

Due to a high volume of emails, it’s not possible to respond to every request.

Correspondences regarding placed orders by existing clients have the highest priority.
If your request requires a personal response from Kaitlin, lead times are likely longer. Thank you for understanding 🙏

Long and personally involved messages regarding chart placements asking for recommendations will likely go unanswered,
because we do not offer personal consultations. Please see this article 
for guidance on making your selections! Thank you.

Phytognosis was born out of a need for genuine high-quality botanicals at reasonable prices. As a practitioner of leechcraft and wortcunning, Jeremy was frequently unable to find authentic ingredients necessary for his workings. As an experienced practitioner of this ancient Art, he is able to bring that same quality to his 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. They also carry several ready to use products for the new practitioner.

About the proprietor: 

Jeremy received his Ph.D. in infectious disease pathology from the University of Texas Medical Branch and his M.S. in microbiology from the University of Rochester. Jeremy is currently an Assistant Professor of Biology studying tick-borne infectious diseases and endothelial pathobiology. Much of his occult research is focused on the history of medicine, folk medicine, and the interplay between Witchcraft and healing.  Jeremy is a long-time student of European folk magic and studies occult herbalism, folk medicine and the traditional witch-lore and practices of the British Isles and is the owner of Phytognosis, a small business focused on plant-based spirituality, incense, resins, and botanical curious.

    Loose Saturn in Capricorn Incense by Phytognosis

    , , ,
    The incredible Dr. Jeremy Bechelli of Phytognosis offers to Saturn in Capricorn a high-grade loose incense, ritually blended in our election window —

    This is a blend of roots, herbs, and resins that align with the darkness at boundaries of time and matter. The blend is composed on Kua myrrh resin, adder, hellebore, blackthorn, patchouli, smoked benzoin resin, and aged tobacco among other traditional Saturnian botanicals.

    The aroma is dark and a bit acrid and is probably best burned outside. It's a very serious incense, maybe a bit intimidating, and perfect for the stoic.

    Arrives in a glass vial with cork top for $39

    Seideropts Loose Incense

    , , ,
    Loose incense ritually crafted during the same Ancestral Series election by Jeremy Bechelli, Ph.D., the proprietor of Phytognosis, fine purveyor of materia magica —

    This incense is deeply dark and reminiscent of rich Earth that is specifically designed to strengthen the ancestral bonds between shades and practitioner.

    The blend is composed of Kua myrrh direct from the island of Socotra, opoponax, myrrh, patchouli, vetiver root, multiple species of Artemisia including A. absinthium, and is bound together with black figs, black cherries, and blackthorn berries. Other ingredients aligned with the darker shades include star anise, wildcrafted rose petals from a cemetery, and a bit of soil with detritus.

    Myrrh is the principle resinous note of this blend and its use was to preserve the flesh of the dead, but more specifically to serve as an invitation to the Realm of Shades. The principle herbaceous component of the blend comes from patchouli, a plant that is often associated with the bare Earth, preservation, and grounding. The rose petals come from a local cemetery and provide a direct link, along with the soil, to the eternal resting grounds of the Dead.

    A lovely tribute. Arrives in a 2 oz (by weight) glass jar with cork top for $47

    Loose Sun in Leo Incense

    , , , , ,
    Jeremy Bechelli, Ph.D., is the proprietor of Phytognosis, ultra fine purveyor of materia magica, incenses, and resins —

    This sun in Leo incense was compounded on Friday, August 9th at 6:00 AM using 36 unique botanical ingredients with the weight of each ingredient in various multiples of 36. The primary solar resins include 6 types of copal, mastic resin, gum juniper, and olibanum. The woods include a solar mix of Red sandars wood, juniper, and sandalwood. Fiery notes originate from Ceylon cinnamon, galangal, ginger, and three exotic species of pepper. 

    Several of the resins were died and polished using extracts of various plants and botanicals that give them a glowing almost jewel like look, reminiscent of the solar rays sparkling off precious gems. This is a luxurious blend containing several rare and unusual ingredients.

    Jupiter Incense Coins

    , , , , ,
    Jeremy Bechelli, Ph.D., is the proprietor of Phytognosis, ultra fine purveyor of materia magica, incenses, and resins. For his first collaboration with Sphere + Sundry, Jupiter’s Bounty, he created 16 sets of specially formulated incense coins, handmade during the election window per his location and individually wrapped. Of them, he shares —

    The incense was created from 16 ingredients, one for each of the numbers in the planetary square. Of those 16 ingredients, 4 take precedence in the aromatic formulation, these being the highest quality copal blanco (Bursera jorullense) from Mexico that I have ever seen.

    I hand-picked each resin piece in Mexico for large pieces that contain soft pure white resin. Outstanding aloeswood powder from Indonesia makes up the 2nd of the precious ingredients (Aquilaria hirta), a true expression of the luxury, abundance, and prosperity of Jupiter. Luxurious storax bark from Turkey (Liquidambar orientalis) forms the third exotic ingredient. Hand powdered galls from the mighty oak (Quercus spp.) steeped in a tincture of allspice (Pimenta dioica) rounds out the final of the major aromatics.

    The base of the incense coins are formed using 12 other botanicals including, nutmeg, pinon pine, juniper, and balsam poplar buds, hyssop, and other traditional botanicals aligned with the Jovial current.

    Each coin should be broken into smaller pieces and gently heated, rather than directly burned.

    Use to fuel significant operations or feed talismans designed for material increase, achieving substantial gnosis, or related Jupitarian purpose.

    Only 16 sets were created available, containing 5 coins each for $44
