Introduction to Fragrant Botanical Witchcraft with Mauricio Garcia - October 5th, 6:30pm-8:30pm


During this seminar, participants will discuss the role fragrant materials can play in magical practice.

Botanical extractions from all over the world will be experienced in the context of spirit work and spellwork. What does it mean to work with plants for magic? Are they merely ingredients in a spell? How can an essence from multiple individual plants be used to conjure the Botanical Genius of the species? What does it mean to work with that great spirit?

These questions and more will be explored in the context of witchcraft, and spiritual and magical work.

Sustainable alternative materials and magical techniques will also be discussed in regards to endangered botanical species.

About the teacher

Mauricio Garcia is a perfumer and certified aromatherapist based in San Francisco, California. His fascination with the botanical world began in his abuela’s small, yet flourishing garden in foggy South San Francisco: the fruit trees and the roses, the yerba buena and other herbs that grew in clay pots, the wall of fragrant jasminum polyanthum that seemed to always be blooming.

This fascination bloomed into a life-long journey in exploring and understanding the secrets and magic of plant spirits through the lens of witchcraft. Mauricio’s practice has shaped itself into an avenue of spiritwork that is beauty, animistically and elementally oriented.

Herbcraft Perfumery fragrances capture the essence of a particular spirit of situation or space using fragrance materials of the highest quality, along with traditional and inventive perfume (as well as more esoteric) techniques. Herbcraft Perfumery is committed to being a sustainable brand that does not use vulnerable or endangered species in its products.

Through Herbcraft Perfumery, Mauricio teaches classes on witchcraft, natural and mixed-media perfumery, and aromatherapy, as well as formulates bespoke fragrances for individuals and indie product lines.
