Calea zacatechichi Oaxacan Dream herb - 1 Ounce
The Chontal medicine men, who assert that this plant is capable of "clarifying the senses", call it thle-pela-kano, meaning "leaf of God". Whenever they desire to know the cause of an illness or the location of a distant or lost person, dry leaves of the plant are smoked, drunk in infusions, and put under the pillow before going to sleep. Reportedly, the answer to the question comes in a dream.
Traditionally the crushed dried leaves were steeped in hot water, and the resulting tea is drunk slowly, after which the user lied down in a quiet place and smokes a cigarette of the dried leaves of the same plant. It has been reported that for divinatory purposes the Chontal people used a handful of the dried plant. The user knew that he or she had taken a large enough dose when a sense of tranquility and drowsiness is experienced and when he or she hears the beats of his or her own heart and pulse. Calea is a rather bitter herb many prefered to smoke rather than to drink as a tea.
