                This is no ordinary selection of plants. These ethnobotanical specimens are of great interest to pharmocologist, ethnobotanist, scientist, alternative healers, spiritualist, shamans, and other cultures across the globe. Ethnobotanicals have been highly sought after by human beings sense the beginning. They are basically tools, which have been used from everything to construction, to religious sacraments. Below I will discuss these sacred gifts in alphabetical order. Keep in mind this is only a small portion of ethnobotanical plants in the world.

African Dream Herb; Entada rheedii; Dreams Spirit Third Eye
african dream herb seed

                African Dream Herb seeds are used by indiginous cultures of Africa, hints the name. They are used as an Oneirogen, which induces vivid, prophetic, and lucid dreams.. They are often carried for good luck. They can also be made into jewlery and other objects used by various cultures. The tree itself contains phytochemicals which have been scientifically studied, hints the fact that we know they exist. You hardly ever read or hear about this plant having medicinal benefits, yet the actual tree that grows from this seed has many medicinal qualities. It seems beyond plausable that there are psychoactive ingredients that these genetics create, as many others have proven to us their pharmacological capabilities.


Personally, I really dig ethnobotanicals that have a history of use for stimulating dreams. Dreams are like our spirits ability to go on nightly adventures. The possibilities are endless when it comes to our dreams. I believe they share with us vital messages related to our waking lives. I suggest using fluoride free water and practicing meditation to enhace your dream life. Also keep a dream log where you write down your dreams in detail. As soon as you wake up try to realize it and say to yourself, "wait a minute.. I was just asleep.. That means I was just dreaming... What was the last thing I was diong?". This will help you to recall your dreams. If you practice it daily it will become a habit.


Alepidea Amatymbica aka Zulu; Dreams Spirit Third Eye
Alepidea Amatymbica iqwili


                This is a rare entheogen from Africa, and one of many. The culture there has embraced the use of gifts such as this one for some time now. You'll notice that many of the really cool plants discussed on this site are native to Africa.

Traditionally the dry rhizomes and roots were smoked or powdered and consumed as a snuff. Like the African Dream Herb and many others, this tool was and is used for its sedative effects and to stimulate vivid dreams. The Xhosa people living in south-eastern Africa have also used it for self-fortification and as a charm for good fortune. It's known as Ikhathazo (Zulu), kalmoes (Afr.), Lesoko (Sotho), Iqwili in the Xhosa language and "large tinsel flower": (Eng.);

These are Interesting beliefs indeed. Are many of us wasting our dream lives because we are not tuning in to our full potential as living creatures? We all have incredible abilities to dream and see with our minds eye. Plants like these help to awaken your consciousness in the dream world.

  

Amanita pantherina mushrooms & Amanita muscaria

amanita pantherina mushrooms  amanita muscaria mushrooms

Both of these strains of Mushrooms have a history of use in various Shamanic cultures. They contain alkaloids of an oneirogenic nature. They are classified as both a dilerant and psychedelic. They are interesting and worthy of research yet as a far warning you must know that they can potentially make someone very ill, both physiologically and psychologically. They are not to be confused with the Psychedelic Psilocybin Mushrooms that Albert Hoffman so respectfully made well known to the academic and otherwise mainstream world.

Ayahuasca; Banisteriopsis Caapi; Dreams Spirit Third Eye

ayahuasca banisteriopsis caapi vine

                 Ayahuasca vine is the main ingredient in a sacred brew used by shamans known as, Ayahuasca. It's traditional use allowed shamans to enter the sacred supernatural world for healing, divination, and worship. These plants are considered "plant teachers", and according to tradition they contain sentient intelligence, and vast knowledge that revels guidance.


These ancient beliefs are most fascinating to me. Especially the part about the plants containing sentient intelligence. Imagine if you will that everything that is you was once so small that it could not be seen to the naked eye. It was still encoded with information that eventually lead to your existence. A tall tree that reaches heights of over 100 feet was once a little tiny seed. These seeds hold data and this data is used in the production of other matter, and so on.


BayBean; Canavalia rosea; Aromatic Smoke

                 This little known entheogen is found in found in Mexico and parts of South America. It has a very pleasant aroma and flavor that to me, resembles Tobacco. I have personally used it to quit smoking. I eventually quit smoking the BayBean too. Every once in a while, I dabble. The effects are quite simliar to Tobacco and the aroma is very dark, almost lager. It can be combined with Tobacco or cured with it as well. The effects are mild, sedative, and very tranquil. To me, this is a must have in my ethnobotanical collection.


Betel Nuts; Areca catechu; Stimulant Anesthetic
Betel Nuts Areca catechu


                Betel Nuts are a popular stimulant similar to Coffee and others. The difference is that Betel Nuts do not contain Caffeine rather they naturally produce another chemical that has stimulating effects. They cause stimulation and a feeling of well-being. Traditionally they are used in Asia, India, and the Pacific over a span of several hours and even combined with Tobacco.

This is very cool indeed. There are tons of other natural stimulants besides Coffee. Caffeine is played out in my opinion. The effects of these Betel Nuts caused numbness in my mouth, a clear minded state of alertness, followed by an over-all sense of greatness. I give Betel Nuts two thumbs up. If you want to learn more about the science and phytochemical constituents present in this entheogen, visit botanicalguides.com's page on Betel Nuts.
