‏‏Calea zacatechichi is a plant used by the Chontal Indians of Mexico to obtain divinatory messages during dreaming. At human doses, organic extracts of the plant produce the EEG and behavioural signs of somnolence and induce light sleep in cats. A controlled nap sleep study in the same volunteers showed that Calea extracts increased the superficial stages of sleep and the number of spontaneous awakenings. The subjective reports of dreams were significantly higher than both placebo and diazepam, indicating an increase in hypnagogic imagery occurring during superficial sleep stages."
Lilian Mayagoitia etc.

Calea ternifolia is Chontal, Mayan Indian's native sacred herb, believed for its spiritually medical purposes. They also call it 'The leaf of gods'. The tea from dried leaves can produce the effect of lucid dreams. Calea seems to affect sleep which may cause lengthening of shallow sleep patterns, increased dream remembrance and strengthened the perception of time.


For the best effect add 2g-3g of Dream herb in a pot and simmer for 10 minutes.

Alternatively, add 1-3 teaspoons in a strainer with boiled water and wait for 5-10 minutes.
