                    Helichrysum odoratissimum is the scientific name of a plant commonly referred to as Imphepho or Kooigoed by KwaZulu-Natal natives. It's a very mysterious and historic plant native to South Africa. Many of the famous ethnobotanicals on this website originate from Africa, where the cultures there have used them for centuries. There is little information on this one available on the internet. The little information available on it is the same paraphrased text, over and over again it seems. This makes it that much cooler. In other words, aside from the wise cultures of Africa, this species is not very well known to the outside world.


Imphepho has medicinal qualities used for treating coughs, colds, headaches, and other ailments. There is common scientific knowledge about the plant, regarding its chemical constituents and actions. The active alkaloid content of this entheogenic gem appears to be the Chalcone and Helichrysetin produced by the plant. The entheogenic effects of the plant are used to aid in visions, sedation and lucid dream workings. It's often combined with Tobacco, or used as a natural aromatic incense that aids in relaxation and meditation.


Imphepho is one of many entheogens and sacred medicines used by the native people of Africa. These cultures have embraced and be-friended nature for centuries, while learning a great deal in the process. Their knowledge of plant based medicine, and the spiritual use of plants is very impressive. These cultures have utilized plants for enhancing dreams, inducing visions, entering sacred spiritual worlds, reaching their ancestors, and medicating their bodies to health.


Imphepho is definately a night time herb, due to its sedative effects the plant aids in relaxation and can help one drift off to sleep. These type of entheogens are also commonly referred to as Oneirogens. Oneirogens are also known as "dream herbs". A lot of Oneirogenic plants have a history of use and origin in Africa. Some other Oneirogens and sedative ( sleep aid ) plants include: Dream Herb; (Calea zacatechichi) , Xhosa Dream Herb( Silene Capensis;) , African Dream Herb (Entada rheedii ), Alepidea (Amatymbica iqwili ), Cowage (Mucuna pruriens), Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)


I'm always doing a lot of research, personal experimentation , and documentation of my experiences with legal and sacred entheogens. I will write up a report on Imphepho in the near future. To me there is always room for another addition to anyones oneirogen stash. Oneirogens are dream inducing plants or substances.
