Nestled in the mystical embrace of the Chihuahuan Desert, Ocotillo Botánica stands as a sanctuary of earthly wisdom and celestial magic. Rooted in reverence for the natural world and guided by the ancient teachings of Hermetic Qabalah and Egyptian cosmology, our journey began with a single plant—an ode to the Chaparral bush's beauty and potency. Originally known as "Marfa Plants," our vision expanded beyond herbalism to embrace the multifaceted realms of metaphysics and holistic wellness. In June of 2019, we blossomed into Ocotillo Botánica, a haven where seekers and sages alike converge to explore the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit.

In January of 2020, we unveiled the doors of our Brick + Mortar shop in downtown Marfa, a sacred space where the tangible and intangible intersect. Though the challenges of 2020 tested our resolve, we emerged stronger, guided by the wisdom of the Oracle and the resilience of the desert. Each offering within our sanctuary is infused with the sacred energies of the Chihuahuan Desert, complemented by the vibrational frequencies of Hermetic Qabalah and the cosmic insights of Egyptian cosmology.

Alexis Smith, Oracle Priestess and Herbalist, is the heart and soul of Ocotillo Botánica. Her journey with plants began amidst the forests of East Texas, but it was in Marfa's desert embrace that her true calling unfolded. In 2020, she embraced the integration of Plant Spirit Healing and clairvoyant plant communication into her practice. A graduate of the Herbal Academy of New England, Alexis's quest for knowledge led her to the realms of Hermetic Qabalah and Egyptian cosmology, where she found illumination and purpose. In 2022, she was initiated into the Oracle Clan, marking a pivotal moment in her spiritual journey. It wasn't until 2023 that she was bestowed the esteemed status of Oracle Priestess, further solidifying her connection to the sacred mysteries and the natural world.
