Silene Capensis – African Dream Root


Silene Capensis, also known in Europe as Gunpowder Root, does not have a lot of significant scientific research. However its ethnobotanical use stretches back thousands of years with the Zulu and Xhosha tribes of South Cape Africa. It carries powerful oneirogenic affects and is considered one of the most sacred plants of the Xhosha out of the nearly 300 they use for medicinal, healing, and shamanistic purposes. It activates your dream state carrying rich dream content and prophetic and highly symbolic imagery. The Xhosha use a root concoction in their Shaman initiation rituals as well as many other acts. They claim the concoctions allow them to connect to their ancestral spirits who appear as ‘white wind’ in their dreams and impart messages and gifts. According to Shaman tradition, if you go to sleep with a question you want answered and consume the root, the answers will come to you in the dream state.
