Fever Tree Summary


                    The xanthophloea ( Mukanya Kudeis ) strain is one of the ubulawu plants used by the Zulu's. What is "ubulawu" and who are the Zulu's? Ubulawu is the name of a chemical found in the plant, which roughly translates to "Medicine of the Singing Ancestors". It's a specific variety of Acacia, similiar to Mimosa. It has unique properties though.


The Zulu people are a Bantu ethnic group located in Southern Africa. If you have done some reading around this website then you'll know that Africa and its people have a very long history tied with the spiritual and medicinal use of entheogens. I find these cultures very fascinating as well as the ethnobotanicals that the have consumed, studied, and shared with the world over the years. xanthophloea is also used by the Sangoma, Nyanga, and Amagqirha people.


Oneirogen Elixir


                 I decided to make an elixir ( an infused tincture ), using Fever Tree, and several others from Africa. The recipie is as follows: Alepidea, Xhosa, Calea Z, Imphepho, and Damiana. The synergistic effects of each plant seem to boost the effects of the others. All are known for their dream inducing abilities. There are a few modifications that can be made, like adding passion flower or an MAOI. This information is for research though, and I wouldn't encourage trying this at home.


Fever Tree, or Acacia xanthophloea was traditionally consumed for the purpose of inducing visionary and prophetic dreams, and allowing a person to connect, and channel messages from the divine after entering the spiritual world. Today, science unlocks the power of many of these sacred and historic ethnobotanicals by understanding the constituents have a relationship with that of the human mind, the pineal gland, and our biology in general.


Cultural Evolution

                I have much respect and admiration for these cultures and their non-modern ways of life. These cultures live off of the land, learn from the plant teachers and spirits, and hold on to a simple, healthy, righteous , and happy life-style that requires none of the burdons of modern society. In my personal observation, I find these cultures to be highly spiritually evolved.

Medicinal Use & Construction


                    The common nickname for this strain of Acacia came from the historic use of the plant when treating fevers. The Fever Tree has also been used as medicine for eye complaints. The tree is also used to produce wood used in buliding. When researching these plants, you will find again and again that many entheogenic species also have medicinal properties. These wild wonders can be utilized as medicine without inducing entheogenic visions as well.


Constituents are chemicals produced by herbs that are of great scientific, and pharmacological importance. In alternative medicine, dosage is very important and can determine if a constituent has a medicinal effect, or a toxic effect. This concept is actually a medical law, as solid and universal as the law of gravity. This medical law is known as "arndt schulz law", and states that any poisonous substance in a dilute enough dosage has positive effects on life processes.


With this in mind, is it not interesting to think about herbal remedies and naturally occuring substances that are labeled toxic? Some of the most effective synthetic medicines on the planet work based on ardnt schulz law, and alternative medicine is approached no different in this sense.



In different cultures, this strain has been referred to by different names. They are as follows: Fever tree (English), Koorsboom (Afrikaans), mooka-kwena (Northern Sotho), umHlosinga, (Zulu), nkelenga (Tsonga), munzhelenga (Venda), Mukanya kude.


                    Fever Tree is not the only strain of Acacia used as an entheogen throughout history. Another type of Acacia, known as Acacia confusa, or "Rainbow Tree" is an ingredient in a mixture used by Shamans known as "ayahuasca". Ayahuasca is used by Shamans to induce visionary states and to enter the spirit world. A compound that produces these effects exists naturally in the human brain, and is released every single night when you sleep and dream.
