Silene capensis (Silene undulata) - Whole Root
Known as African Dream Root or Ubulawu, Silene undulata (synonym, S. capensis) has been used for countless years by a culture that believes ancestors are contacted through dreams, so they cultivate and seek out plants that they believe enhance dreaming. This African Dream Root is one of the best-known in Africa and we are thrilled to offer it to our customers as an incense component.
Normally only the seeds are available but we have finally managed to locate a supply of the actual root.
A website describes this plant as follows:
"This obscure flowering species is regarded by shamans of the South African region as a type of "Ubulawu" or root that they call 'Undela Ziimhlophe', which translates literally as 'white paths' or white ways."
This product is not intended or sold for ingestion by humans or animals. It is sold only for use as an incense.
