(Helicrysum Odoratissmum)

Helichrysum odoratissmum, better known as Imphepho & Immortelle, is a mysterious plant that is found throughout much of Africa.

It has been used for centuries by healers in ritualistic healing & magic ceremonies.

It is still used by the Kwa-Zulu peoples of South Africa in smoking mixes, often in combination with potent shamanic tobacco. This mixture is said to induce deep states of trance and visions while bringing the sacred messages of the ancestors. These messages help them to heal others & find solutions to village problems.

The Khoihkoi people of South Africa prepare tea from the leaves and flowers of the Imphepho, which they call Buchu. This tea  would allow  to induce states of ecstatic trance during which shamans can guess the future. This tea is often made with a combination of different psychoactive plants native to the region ...

They also signal that the body falls into a dream state, leaving it in a sense of slight physical paralysis, while the mind and memory remain intact and cohesive. By maintaining this state of consciousness for a while, they are then able to enter the dream world with their full faculties.
