The Nightside collection was created in collaboration with The Nephilim Rising and Poisoner's Apothecary. Combining their dark talents they created six formulas for workings of a chthonic and necromantic nature. There are many points of connection between poisonous plants and infernal spirits, and this collection accentuates those connections.
