Sédir's Concise Guide to Magical Plants

Step into the esoteric world of botanical mysteries with "Occult Botany" by Paul Sédir, a seminal text from the heart of the French occult revival. Originally published in 1902, this book blends the realms of scientific botany with the age-old traditions of mystical herbalism, offering a profound exploration of plant magic and the hidden secrets of the natural world.

Paul Sédir, a pivotal figure in the fin-de-siècle occult resurgence, takes readers on a journey through the mystical dimensions of plant life. From the origins of the plant kingdom to the astral influences of planets and zodiac signs, Sédir delves deep into the secrets of phytogenesis, plant physiology, and plant physiognomy. Discover the fascinating intersections of science and magic as you explore:

  • Nearly 300 magical plants, each described with its scientific name, common names, elemental qualities, ruling planets, and zodiacal signatures.
  • Commentary on the medico-magical properties and uses of these plants.
  • Methods of phytotherapy and plant magic, including ritual pacts with trees and the composition of magical philters.
  • The occult art of plant classification according to the doctrine of signatures.

Unveil the ancient wisdom of plant correspondences and the power they hold in magic and healing. "Occult Botany" serves as a comprehensive reference for modern herbalists, occult practitioners, and those seeking to explore the hidden realms of plant knowledge.

This edition, skillfully edited and translated by R. Bailey, Ph.D., includes supplemental materials, charts, and diagrams sourced from Sédir's contemporaries who expanded upon his pioneering system of plant correspondences. Dive into the pages of this mystical botanical grimoire and unlock the secrets of the plant kingdom's esoteric wisdom.

Contributor Bio: Paul Sédir, pseudonym of Yvon Le Loup (1871-1926), was a pivotal figure of the fin-de-siècle French occult revival. He was a professor at the École hermétique and Faculté des sciences hermétiques in Paris under the directorship of Papus, his first spiritual mentor. Sédir practiced magic with the alchemist Albert Poisson and was initiated into almost all of the secret societies that occult Paris had to offer. Under the name Tau Paul, he was consecrated bishop of Concorezzo in the Église gnostique de France. He authored over twenty books in French, contributing significantly to traditions of magic, mysticism, and esotericism.

Contributor Bio: R. Bailey, Ph.D., is the editor and translator of Jean Mavéric's "Hermetic Herbalism" and Paul Sédir's "Occult Botany." His research interests encompass ancient, medieval, and modern herbalism, magic, Hermeticism, and Gnosticism.
