TELLING STORIES, CHANGING THE CONVERSATION

Welcome to a botanica: a priestess explains an African traditional spiritual system

in Religion & Spirituality by

Yeyeo Botanica is narrow shop shaped like a railroad car that is quietly tucked between a women’s store and stationary depot that burns incense and plays house music all day.

All day, people walk-in-and-out, leaving with bags of botanical items from soap to stones to feather. In the front, you might be greeted by Elemi Gayle’s clerk, a woman who has as many stories as her vivacious personality. In the back, on some days, you catch a glimpse of the owner, Gayle, who often is consulting someone or checking inventory.

The only botanica in Downtown Newark, Gayle attracts curious folk and those who are well-adept in practicing various spiritual systems.
