About the Owner-Elemi

About Elemi, Owner of Yeyeo Botanica, Master Spiritualist and Priestess.

Yeyeo Botanica is the pioneer in bridging the gap between Modern Spiritualism and Respected Traditions. Our motto is “A Modern Approach to Traditional Beliefs™” for a reason.

Elemi Gayle is the owner of Yeyeo Botanica. Yeyeo Botanica is considered one of the first, if not the first Black Owned Botanica in the United States. Yeyeo Botanica has been open for over 13 years serving the Newark NJ area.

Even though the root of Traditional Religions comes directly from Africa; only in the last 20-30 years have Black and African Americans really embraced their heritage in these practices.

Botanicas were historically found in predominantly Hispanic and Latino neighborhoods. Botanicas are usually seen in some of the larger or major cities in the US that had a large Orisha or Spiritual community such as New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.

Elemi is a lifelong spiritualist, gifted medium and life coach. Elemi holds the highest levels of initiation in respected African Traditions.
