mulungu

           It's been a minute sense I've introduced my followers to a new believed medicinal or psychoactive plant. For this reason and many others I'll be talking today about a new specimen that I have high hopes for, and a hunch that it's going to be quite impressive. It's called Mulungu ( Erythrina mulungu ) and I am going to try it soon, write up a full experience report, and compare it to my experiences with similar plants so that you can all get an accurate idea of what its all about. Sense first publishing this blog, I have done just that! I'll tell you what I thought of it, share some science, and discuss this majestic herbal specimen.


If you follow me and browse my website often, you'll see that medicinal and psychoactive plants are endless. Everyday new medicines and plant based "drugs" are introduced to the American public either via pharmaceutical companies, or entrapaneurs. Believe it or not, many of these plants are often outlawed while many people have never heard of them nor had the chance to experience what they have to offer. Kratom, Khat, and Coca are three good examples of this. Fortunately, there are law reform organizations working around the clock to combat this. We have created an epidemic of synthetic alterantives by targeting nature with this war.


Mulungu ( Erythrina mulungu ) is a tree which is native to Southern and Central America.[1] There, it has been utilized for ages by the natives who believe that it promotes relaxation, and is a powerful medicine.[1] Its also been used as an organic insecticide and as a fish poison.[2,3] This doesn't mean it's poisonous to humans, although it's very likely that ridiculous dosages of it may be. We must always remember the Arndt Schulz rule ( see my citations ). Typically its made into tinctures and decoctions, depending on whether you're using the leaves or bark.[2,3] It has sedative effects which are believed to be calming to the nervous system, are said to lower blood pressure, and are believed to be useful for insomnia, anxiety, and depression.[2,3] Consult with your physician first!


The fact that its used for anxiety, insomnia, and depression to me indicates some psychoactivity. This can be observed time and time again when dealing with sacred ethnobotanicals. The effects that the plant is said to induce are some what on par with that of Kratom, yet slightly more intense than Chamomile, Passion Flower, and Skullcap, to name a few. I'm very interested in using it in herbal infusions, which are designed to utilize multiple plants in order for their effects to harmonize and induce specific properties desired by the user and the creator of the blend.


I first tried it in the same way I would use Kratom. I put some on a spoon, and chased it down with a drink. I decided I would wait until I was having an off day to use it to see if it would impact my mood. Within abuot 30 minutes, my day had completely turned around. From there, I became interested in possibly making it stronger some how. So I came up with an infusion idea and decided to take some Mulungu, Ginger and Passion Flower ( for an MAOI ) and combine them. I took essential oils of all three, and added them to a tincture that was made out of nothing but Mulungu. I noticed and even more profound sensation of well-being this way! Creating your own infusions and "blends" is a lot of fun and very rewarding by the way.
