Sananga is made from the roots and bark of the Tabernaemontana undulata shrub a “milkwood” species in the family Apocynaceae, and comes directly from the Amazonian tribes peoples. This sacred and potent medicine is used for healing physical and spiritual ailments, by clearing the mind of distractive energies and allowing for a complete new way of perceiving and focusing. This Sananga is infused with intentions of absolute clarity and focus. Although Sananga is said to contain Ibogaine alkaloids there is actually little evidence to suggest this is in fact true. Tabernaemontanta is not actually a genus but a “sub-family”, and therefore also classified as “Tabernaemontanoidae”. McKenna reports that only some of the several dozen or so plants in this sub family contain ibogaine, others like ‘undulata’ may only have analgesic or sedative properties.

Usage and Medicinal Effects:

The pure spirit of Sananga supports a deep cleansing of blocked energies on emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. Sananga can balance and increase your energies, and find the roots of your diseases and blockages, leading to a complete equilibrium, focus and peace of mind. Moreover, the drops will expand your spiritual vision and awareness, and enhance your ability to read others people´s intentions. Also, Sananga increases your long-range vision, which is important for visualizations and predictions of the future. Apart of this, the drops are also used to cure and improve a broad range of ocular problems (Lambert et al 2010), like myopia, depth and color perception, definition of images, and detection accuracy. Furthermore, this magical medicine is indicated in cases of severe eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataract, and blindness. As these drops can exert such powerful effects on your visualization, they are also commonly applied before or during Ayahuasca ceremonies, to increase visualization and spiritual insights.

Even though Sananga is famous for its effects on vision and visualization, this medicine is considered to be an indigenous all-purpose remedy. It is applied for febrifuge, emetic, diuretic, calmative, and several other diseases. Furthermore, Sananga is often used to cure skin illnesses (dermatitis), suppress appetite (Jernigan 2009), ease dental problems (Shepard 1999), and counteract snakebite wounds and poisoning, cure eye wounds and rheumatism (Sanz-Biset et al. 2009; Schultes 1979). Another important curative aspect of the Apocynaceae family is its widely explored antimicrobial activity, which showed that this family has strong antioxidant (Pereira et al. 2005), anticancer (Kingston et al. 1977; Gunasekera et al. 1980), antifertility/ contraceptive (Meyeret al. 1973), antipyretic (fever reducing), anti-inflammatory (Taesotikul et al. 2003), anti-mycobacterial (Pereira et al. 2005), and antimicrobial (Beek et al. 1984; Suffredini et al. 2002; Ruttoh et al. 2009) effects.

Traditionally, tribes like the Matsés use Sananga as a hunting tool to obtain a sharp perception and concentration, and to enable the detection of subtle movements in the dark jungle (Lambert et al 2010). Moreover, the drops can enable strong visualizations of the prey or the plant to be hunted, allowing for a quick and successful quest. Often Sananga is combined with other hunting tools, like Kambo, which further enhance the hunting skills. For most indigenous tribes, hunting means survival and therefore signifies an exceptionally important and crucial ability.
