White Lotus; Nymphaea ampla
nymphaea ampla

         The White Lotus is a close relative of the popular Blue Lotus. The Nymphaea genus is well known for its psychoactive constituents known as Aporphine and Apomorphine (6a-beta-aporphine-10,11-diol) and nuciferine (1,2-dimethoxy-aporphine). In my opinion and from my expreince, there are a large variations in the quality of the dried petals, stamina's and seeds from different vendors. It's often referred to as "The sacred narcotic Lilly". It was prized depicted in by the ancient Egyptians in their art and text, and modern and historic mystics prize it as a tranquil sedative, that soothes the soul and lifts spiritual vibrations. Even the Bhuddist like it!


Preparing the Lotus has been done in many different ways. A skill botanical-chemist or phytochemist could make a potent extract that I think would be cool to try at least. For those who aren't knowledgeable in chemistry, a simple water/alcohol extraction proves effective when using quality, potent plant material. Some things you don't need to extract. At any rate, I've used this stuff in the evening, to relax with. I'd lay down after drinking a few cups, and put on one of those lucid dream meditation things from YouTube, and man was it ever cool. I definitely think that's the best way to use it. Once you decide it's time to get up, you feel so refreshed from just unwinding and letting your mind quiet.


White Willow Bark; Salix alba
white willow bark

          Not only has it been used in the mass production of Aspirin, but it also has many historic beliefs surrounding its use in herbalism. I have a great book written by a Native American who says they used it as a antibiotic, and to supposedly boost the immune system. The book is called "Earthway", by Mary Summer Rain. I'm not a doctor, but if you have ulcers I woulnd't use it ( though I could be wrong ). I know that too much NSID can cause ulcers. I've typed up an entire original blog on it and you can read it by clicking on the title above. It's one of my favorite trees of all times. I love the vibe that it puts off in general. A very friendly species indeed I believe. In the blog, I'll share some ideas with you.


Wild Yam; Dioscorea dregeana
wild yam

         Not many people know about Wild Yam. It's a POWERFUL sedative. It's said to have the ability to put someone to sleep within 20 minutes. I'm not sure if this is an exaderation or what. When you look into its traditional medicinal applications in Africa though, and the conditions it's used for, including "hysteria", then it makes sense. I figured it was a rare ethnobotanical that hardly anyone would have for sale but I've been surprised. It's turning up in shops everywhere, and in capsule form as well. The leaves look a lot like Mullein, and even have the same texture. Please be responsible and research interactions, side effects, precautions, etc, from a source such as WEBMD. Talk to your doctor always. These herbs are fascinating but there is the occasional potential for dangerous dosaes, interactions, or side effects caused from interactions with certain medical conditions.

Wild Dagga Leonotis leonurus
Wild Dagga

        It was used as a tool by the Hottentot Tribe of South Africa. The Hottentot believed in Lion's Tail's health benefits. Supposedly it has entheogenic properties yet this is debated by many. Wild Dagga was used in Eastern medicine as a believed euphoriant, purgative, and vermifuge. Other supposed medicinal applications according to herbalist include the possible treatment of: fevers, headaches, dysentery, flu, chest infections, epilepsy, constipation, delayed menstruation, intestinal worms, spider bites, scorpion stings, hypertension and snakebites. Externally, it has been used for hemorrhoids(yowzers!), eczema, skin rashes and boils. I had grown some of this stuff at one time. The flowers are absolutely incredible. I noticed they create a hashish like substance that can be harvested similarly. Learn more about Wild Dagga Here!
