The shrub

The Amazonian Indians call the sananga shrub “Apocynaceae”. Within sanganga there are 2 variations. Their Latin names are Tabernaentana Undalata and Tabernaentana Sahanho. The undalata type seems to be more present in Peru and the sahanho comes from Brazil. I have been told that there are another 2 sub-varieties but that’s where the information ends. Not all know analytical knowledge about sanaga is available to us and that’s how it is. In the end, we can only really connect with medicine when we use it. Information is helpful but can be also distracting or even misleading when not all the details are known. The real knowledge is always inside always the medicine.

Tribal usage

Various Amazonian tribes use sananga eye-drops to improve their hunting skills. The spirit of sananga helps to cleanse deeply on an energetic, physical, emotional and spiritual level. It also helps to unblock all chakras and release any stuck energy.

Traditionally the tribes use the eye-drops to clear “panemas”. Think about panemas as bad luck in hunting and life. Depression, laziness, lack of motivation, poor concentration, bad moods, temper tantrums, sadness and low mood. It positively influences all factors that attract difficulties and dis-ease.

Several tribes in the Amazon use sananga to improve their hunting skills giving them a kind of a night vision. It also gives more depth of perception and crisper more refined eyesight and helps improving long and short-sightedness. This way it helps the Indians to see the smallest movements in the forest as they hunt and gives them the power to travel through the dense forest.

How to administer  sananga

Sananga is best applied by a friend while you are laying down in a comfortable place. The receiver keeps his eyes closed. Two drops are placed on the inner side of your eye sockets. Now you open your eyes so the drops can flow on your eyeballs. The effect is instantaneously and depending on the strength of the Sananga it can be mild but in general, it is quite strong.
