                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 are plants that have been highly sought after by human beings sense the beginning. Below I will discuss these sacred plants in alphabetical order. Keep in mind this is only a small portion of ethnobotanical plants in the world.




Hawaiian Baby Woodrose


               Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds are not to be taken lightly. They were important to researchers like Albert Hoffman. I'm pretty sure they have been depicted in the motion picture, "The Wizard Of Oz". Look closely when Dorothy first steps foot in "Munchkin land". Today these plants and seeds are available for sale only for cultivation purposes. Read more about this rare gem here.




Henbane - Hyoscyamus niger

               Henbane has been used by various cultures who embrace alternative spiritual practice. It's often associated with stories that describe what is obviously astral projection. It's also believed to offer prophetic visions, and clairvoyant states of consciousness. Although the use of this plant is well documented, it should be understood that these people knew what they were doing. Henbane, like it's cousins, contains tropane alkaloids along with other potentially fatal constituents. Its very similar to Nightshade, and Datura.


Having said this, I'd like to familiarize you with a medical rule that's as solid as the law of gravity. It's called, "Arndt-Schultz rule". This rule states that any poison in a dilute enough form offers effects beneficial to life processes. A good example of this is penicillin, the common pharmaceutical anti-biotic. Keep in mind that too much medicine can be considered poisonous also. In other words, too much medicine is poison and too little poison is medicine. The difference is all in the dosage.




Hops - Humulus lupulus

               Hops is closely related to Cannabis ( marijuana ). For those of you who frown on Marijuana, remember this the next time you drink a beer. It's great for insomnia and offers some mild relaxing properties of it's own. If you've spent some time reading on this website then you are already familiar that all plants create chemicals. Nature is a highly advanced pharmacy that's been in business sense the dawn of time. Hops is no difference in this sense, and has undergone much phytochemical research. It's antibacterial, sedative, hypnotic, and an aphrodisiac. Hops plants even produces buds and hairs like Cannabis. Read more about Hops here.




Hookers Lips - Psychotria elata

               Hookers lips gets its name from the plant parts which resemble the lips of a female covered in bright red lipstick. It's a close relative of psychotria viridis which was used in Ayahuasca. The plant is a major interest to those studying ethnobotany and related shamanic cultures.
