Ethnobotany is the study of the cultural use of plants. Shamanistic cultures are a
major interest to those studying ethnobotany. This page is dedicated to teaching the basic
understanding of how plants are powerful teachers. Each each one is an ally in its own
unique and respectable fashion. By the time you reach the end of this page you will have a
firm grasp on the basics of the shamanic use of plants.
Shamanic cultures around the world have long viewed many plants as what they call
an ally. They are a spiritual entity which can serve to guide and enlighten the
practitioner. The most commonly known ally is the Ayahuasca brew that is an integrated part
of the culture of the Amazon and Peru. On this website you'll find an endless number of
plant teachers, allys, and other shamanic tools. All of these ethnobotnaicals do have
pharmacological value as well. They have ancient origins of use and an astronomical amount
of potential for influencing great change in human society.
Getting To Know Your Tools
In shamanic cultures there is an understanding that the environment, location,
plants, stones, and animals that people encounter all have an impact on their energy field
or spirit body. They understand that everyone has a unique reaction to these factors.  It's
important to find a location that resonates well with your aura, and to find
ethnobotanicals that do as well. As far as the use of different crystals and stones, they
understand that everyone has a different reaction. When you read about the properties of
these gems remember that they may effect you in a different way. The use of stones for
psychological therapy does have some scientific credence. This is because there is a
academic understanding that colors have psychological influences and vibrations of their
own. Having this in mind we can understand how various gems may influence us on a
subconscious level. This is just the basic understanding of a much more complex
Shamans bring with them some form of protection when entering the spirit world.
Talismans are a big part of this practice. A talisman is an object that has energy and
symbolism behind it. They do not believe that the object itself is what carries the magical
power, but the energy and symbolism that you put into it is the key. They also believe that
the talisman can serve its purpose whether its accessible or far away. It becomes wired
into the neuropathways of ones mind.
A talisman can be anything. It can be a picture you draw, a crystal, a book, a
pillow, a plant, pouch, or even the root of a plant. A good example of this is the African
shamanic talisman called Entada rheedii, or African Dream Herb. The seeds are used as a
talisman for protection, as well as an oneirogen. The seeds can either be consumed, or carried
around for their symbolism. With enough practice, you may see the seed in your dream. This
can indicate to you that you are dreaming, being that this is the symbolism and energy you
have put into the object.
Below is a small list of some incredibly useful Talismans, Allys, and Plant
Teachers that are not yet mainstream to the western world. You can learn more about each
one by clicking on the title. The idea behind this page is to introduce some less commonly
discussed ethnobotanicals to the world, and the cultural knowledge that accompanies them.
