Ossayin is the owner of all the leaves.

Have you heard of charmers, enchanters, sorcerers, conjurers, magician, witchcraft and wizadry before. these group of people used a muliplexity of natural elements like air, water, earth, fire and herbs to execute things in the spiritual realm to have a physical effect.

these people are sometimes and loosely refer to as Oloogun in yoruba but their practices are of different modes and approaches. you can not know one easily from another unless you are conversant with the spiritual realm.

The babalawos are called the seers or clairvoyance or generally as diviners. they also use muliplexity of natural elements like air, water, earth, fire and herbs to solve spiritual problems, sees into the future, avert future disasters, to make choices amongst competing forces, physical or ecclesiastical. they also serve as healers.

The Onisegun, Basegun are the healers and are also generally refers to as herbalist. they also use muliplexity of natural elements like air, water, earth, fire and herbs to cure diseases of various kind. they can easily be compared to the present day orthodox doctors or pharmacists. the only difference being that the functionality of drug preparations and administrations are not separated.

The Awos are the occultists and are of various kinds, mostly divided into two major clans - the white and the black. the whites are known for good deeds and the black are known for bad or evil deeds. they mostly believe in representing and continuing the legacy of a spiritual being, collectively known as gods. priesthood belong to these sects. the ogbonis belong to this sect as well.

The ologuns are the warriors and are called different names in different yoruba climes like akoguns, baloguns, jagunjaguns, etc. they also use muliplexity of natural elements like air, water, earth, fire and herbs to wage wars.

The Olodes are hunters beside hunting for games and food and for commerce, they also serve as security guards and soldiers for their communities. they aslo make use of muliplexity of natural elements like air, water, earth, fire and herbs to hunt and secure their communities. they can be loosely called the police.

I will stop here for now, if you need further knowledge, guide and support, kindly reach me on s.adebayo@yahoo.com

Thanks for your contribution but can you Elaborate on Onisegun, ologun role in Herbalism. Do they have knowledge on plants Metaphysics?

Also elaborate on Ogun cult Modus Operandi. What are the differences between Ogun cult and Ogboni fraternity?

How do both cults admit New members?

Onisegun, ologun could be herbalists and/or healers.

But that mustn't be conflated with Ologun who are devotees to the cult of Ogun.
