Sugandi Root (Hemidismus indicus)
Sugandi is also sometimes called 'the eternal root,' as its root network covers a great distance underground. According to traditional Tibetan medicine, this is a "delicious" herb -- meaning, it smells sweet and aromatic -- and is also known as sugandhi, 'the fragrant one' in Hindi.
In the Himalayas, Sugandi is ground to a coarse powder with dried leaves or seeds of several different plants and then burned as a ritual incense. It has been used as an incense by shamans of various cultures for a very long time.
Called the "symbols of human mind on the earth" the roots of Sugandi really look like "little neurons" complete with "synapses and glias," according to present-day pharmacists.
