Fever Tree Acacia xanthophloea [ Medicine, Effects, Cultures ]


Acacia xanthophloea is a member of the Mimosaceae ( Leguminosae - Mimosoideae ) family. If you have a popup blocker, just touch and hold the link on a mobile device, then go to copy or open in new window. The second clickable link opens in the same window.(diverts from site). This specimen is related to another ethnobotanical known as Rainbow Tree. Genesis 9:13 "I set My rainbow 🌈 in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between Me and the earth." Please note that I'm not trying to come off like I think this plant is good or bad, I really just try to share scripture, science, lore, and encourage you to seek the bible and God for the answers, unless I definitively feel one way or another. Often times the item is sorta in the middle for me, or I am unsure. Better to leave something alone if you are unsure about it. Check out discernment in 1 Corinthians 12.

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, similar to Mimosa. Keep in mind, the cultural lore around this plant indicates clear shamanic use, so one should note the difference between divination and prophecy, and discern between true and false doctrine. The bible warns as such. This information is for educational and harm reduction purposes. So note that Acacia wood would used by Noah to build the Ark, and that it makes this strain in the same genre of plants as Ayahuasa and even the Psilocybe fungi.(psilocybin containing species).


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 what researchers call "ethnobotanicals". Ethno relates to cultural study, and botanicals obviously the plants. One thing you have to watch out for when buying stuff online in the "ethnobotanical" genre, is that it may have came from a witch doctor. You don't want that. Xanthophloea is also used by the Sangoma, Nyanga, and Amagqirha people. Interestingly enough, many of their beliefs tend to support Christian beliefs. Both believe in an angelic realm, or as the shamans call it "the spirit realm". One must discern between the doctrines and teachings and practices that the bible warns against, because they will certainly lead to your demise and thorough undoing.. Psalm 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide by his rules.


            Exodus 25:10 KJV "They shall make an ark of acacia wood. Two cubits and a half shall be its length, a cubit and a half its breadth, and a cubit and a half its height." Some other plants that are similar to Fever Tree, and several others from Africa: Xhosa, Calea Z, Imphepho, and Damiana. The synergistic effects of each plant seem to boost the effects of the others. One thing you should look out for though is people who market this stuff may only focus on the things that sound good. Always research precautions, interactions, side effects, and stories that people share about their experiences on YouTube are always valid.. I mean if everyone says don't do it that means something right?. All are known for their dream inducing reputation. 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. This is basically what primitive cultures were doing, mixing plants, and the chemicals that they produced were causing deliberate psychoactive effects, as intended by the creator. I do cite a lot of cool facts on here but you should know this partciular plant is more something that shamans would use than something like Ginkgo.


Fever Tree, or Acacia xanthophloea was traditionally consumed for the purpose of inducing visionary and divinatory induced( not to be confused with, and often mislabeled as "prophetic" dreams), and allowing a person to connect, and channel messages from the divine after entering the spiritual world. I believe this is called divination. The bible condemns divination, but it also mentions PROPHECY. Job 33:14:: "For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man. He keepeth back his soul from the pit, and his life from perishing by the sword." The difference between prophecy and divination, is prophecy comes from God, and the righteous side. Divination is of the luciferian realm, and it is a deception. The two are from the same genre, but opposite polarities. Learn to discern between the two and take the rules in the bible seriously when encountering this doctrine beause the Word of God proves itself2 Peter 1:21 "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." (Notice the 21, 7x3=21 {777}) 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. Without meaning to or fully accepting it, they have provided more proof of God, a divine intelligence beyond all that which has been created.




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. Remember, the wood used by Noah to build the Ark was Acacia wood! When researching these plants, you will find again and again that many entheogenic species also have medicinal properties, and different uses among different peoples around the world. These wild wonders can be utilized as medicine without inducing religious visions as well. Not all plants are the same though, and some contain both potentially good and bad compounds, while others are amazingly non-toxic and beneficial. Remember Genesis 3, & the story of The Forbidden Fruit.


Constituents are chemicals produced by herbs that are of great scientific, and medicinal importance ( phytochemistry pharmacology etc ). Scientifically, these medicinal ingredients that plants produce are called phytochemicals, vitamins, nutrients, minerals, compounds, alkaloids, etc. In alternative medicine, dosage is very important and can determine if a constituent has a medicinal effect, or a toxic effect. (I'm suggesting reading peer reviewed journals on top of what people are saying, look for the good, neutral, and negative.) 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. I don't know if I agree with this but this is what they believe in modern pharmacology. Most plants used in herbalism are not highly poisonous, if any at all. Some are though, but it seems most botanicals used in herbalism lean towards the non-toxic side. I notice a pattern of dark cultures/groups/cults who lean towards the more toxic ones. It's like that verse in the bible, judge a vine by its fruit.


Modern medicine is not the way it has been done throughout history, and evidence suggest it's doing more harm than good ( look at the statistics ) It seems today people have baught into the idea that the sky is orange, and have turned their back on the Ancient Of Days and his ways. Remember the ten commandments, because the first two are the most widely broken today. Exodus 20:: People have made man made substances their God that they turn to for deliverance, instead of making use of that which has been gifted to us, and made known to us through the holy spirit and the power of discernment that comes from the holy spirit. There's a lot of my opinion on these pages. At ease. I encourage you to read straight from the sources though. Lore, science, and religion all help, as long as its the correct doctrine.. I suggest the holy bible.


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. Pretty cool huh? I'm assigning it the street name "Feev". A lot of these I can't even pronounce. I would be very interested to hear the proper pronunciation of these African names for this botanical. ;)


                    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 vine(not to be confused with the actual brew, just the banisteriopsis caapi vine itself)". 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. Learn more about this via Rick Strassman, the head researchers, or MAPS. See the resource section at the bottom of this page. This is not a shop, I do link to my ETSY below but don't sell this. I stick to grandma herbs.
