                    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 just one of many forms of sacred medicines used by the native people of Africa. In fact, there are so many tools their for manifesting the psyche that it's nearly impossible to document them all. 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 and has even made an impact in modern science by giving researchers an idea about where to look, and which herbs to research for their pharmacological potential. Even though westerners today are only beginning to catch on to these ancient practices, these cultures have utilized them for ages. They are known for enhancing dreams, inducing "visions", entering sacred spiritual worlds, reaching their ancestors, and medicating their bodies to health.


Imphepho (hooigoed) is definately something to be used in the evening rather than the day. This is due to its sedative effects which enable the plant to aid in relaxation, thus enabling one to overcome insomnia by slowly allowing tension to melt away as the user then begins drifting off to sleep. This type of substance is also commonly referred to as an "Oneirogen". 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 ) type 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 these types of sacred plant medicines and tools for exploring consciousness. I will write up a report on Imphepho in the near future. To me, there is always room for another addition for anyones oneirogen stash. Check out the Oneirogens section here on the site to learn about many more of these. If this is a topic that really captures your interest, you may enjoy this book called "Drugs Of The Dreaming". It's about the cultural and pharmacological value of these plants.
