Because of Elemi I’m more focused and grounded and I learned more about myself, my surroundings. I learned a lot about my ancestor heritage. Thank God for Elemi because of her I’ve made many, many great changes for my family and myself.
Yeyeo Botanica is the best Botanica that I’ve come across. All the staff and Elemi are very cool, welcoming and caring. They helped me with a lot of things. They help me with solutions to my situations, they made sure if I was ok and satisfied with my purchases. Yeyeo Botanica is the Best around. I am from NYC and the botanicas’ in NYC can learn a lot from Yeyeo Botanica."

Hawwa: “The spirit of this store invites anyone open and willing to receive guidance and grow spiritually. I spent years seeking out counseling and spiritual guidance from people who were driven by profiting off my spiritual instability. After coming here almost three (3) years ago, I’ve never found the need to go elsewhere. This store’s aura is as bright as its banner and its presence on Halsey Street makes Yeyeo a powerful, quiet hidden secret. Elemi’s love and respect for the spirits is extended to every visitor that walks through these doors. For those willing to visit Yeyeo is truly a modern approach to traditional beliefs that will always leave you feeling centered.”
Hawwa’s Review regarding reading by Elemi: “Elemi has a gift of empathy and discernment that has a way of elevating enlightening and inspiring every person she encounters. Her advice has a way of resonating with you in a way that makes you feel understood and appreciative of the compassion that comes with her words. She is rejuvenating and insightful in a way that makes you feel like she’s lived so many lives (possibly even yours!) Her light is constant, clear and loving and it makes me feel lucky to have met someone who can be a great counselor, advisor, friend and a wonderful human being.”
A: "The only Botanica I’ve been to where the candles ACTUALLY WORK!!! Especially the “Shut-Up” ones."
D.P: "Elemi is awesome, I stopped by today to pick up essential oils but in the past Elemi has helped me in ways unimaginable. She has a spiritual gift and I don’t know what I would do without her guidance and Counsel.
Thank you and see you soon."

The next morning I felt very light and renewed. I thank Almighty for Yeyeo and Addies advice."
