Imphepho - Helichrysum odoratissimum
OUT OF STOCK - DO NOT ORDER!
A strong-smelling, multi-branched perennial with small silvery leaves and small yellow flowers, Imphepho has many uses throughout history. As Africans believe that ancestors make contact with them through their dreams, they burn Imphepho in the hope that it will help them to reach the lucid dreams that are so crucial to their culture. Most often, however, it is burned simply as ritual incense to invoke the goodwill of the ancestors.
Imphepho also was used by healers in KwaZulu-Natal.
