Hellebore is a poisonous plant that has the power of altering perception, and it’s thought to be one of the main ingredients for the witches’ flying ointment. Associated with the water element, it is known for opening up portals to the Underworld and the subconscious.

HELLEBORE is a UK-based small press devoted to British folk horror and the occult. Founder and editor Maria J. Pérez Cuervo publishes the magazine twice a year, on Beltane and Samhain, with conceptual issues (such as Sacrifice, Wild Gods, Malefice, Ritual, or their latest offering, Unveiling) that integrate non-fiction pieces with the striking, magical and surreal imagery of Canadian art director Nathaniel Hébert and the work of other contemporary artists and photographers, such as Nona Limmen, Isa Bancewicz, or Courtney Brooke aka Lightwitch. In December 2021, HELLEBORE published the travel guide The Hellebore Guide to Occult Britain.
