Sananga is a powerful liquid made from the root bark of the Tabernaemontana undulata shrub, which is a part of the Apocynaceae family. This remedy is made by a Katukina tribe from deep inside the Brazilian Amazon. The Tabernaemontana undulata can grow to heights of 10 m tall. The plant itself has also been used for both food and remedies. It can be found growing in various regions such as Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, the Guyanas, Panama, Costa Rica, and Trinidad.

When the liquid is being made, it is infused with intentions and prayers for healing to bring about clarity and focus. Traditional there are reports that it is used for the healing of various physical conditions, as well as spiritual ailments, for the clearing of the mind and one’s energetic field to support a new way of perception and focus. Where Sananga is most often used is for the deep clearing of blockages on the emotional, physical and spiritual levels. It is believed to have the capacity to balance and increase the vitality of the body while also uncovering deep roots of illness and blockages that may have led to disease. Sananga facilitates a sense of wellbeing, clarity and peace of mind.

Traditionally, drops are applied into the eyes to expand spiritual vision and awareness while enhancing one’s ability to read other people’s intentions. Sananga is also said to increase a person’s long-range vision. Indigenous people believe it can also be used to treat a broad range of ocular problems such as myopia, depth and colour perception, definition of images and for detection accuracy. It has also been used in the treatment of various other eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and even blindness, but not scientific evidence has been reported yet.

The drops are known to exert such a powerful effect on a person’s ability to receive visions, particularly when applied before or during Aya-mother ceremonies. It can increase visualization and spiritual insights. Other traditional uses include use as a febrifuge, emetic, diuretic, calmative and for several others including skin conditions, addiction, apetite suppressant, to ease dental problems, to counteract snakebite wounds and poisoning, to cure various eye wounds, rheumatism and to end negative thought patterns. Another important curative aspect of the Apocynaceae family is its antimicrobial activity.


Traditionally used in Brazil by the indigenous people to increase their visual acuity for hunting within the Amazon rainforest. It helps to sharpen their eyesight, awareness and extra sensory perception so they may stay strong and focused. They believe that the Sananga drops also enhance ‘panema’. When a person lacks panema, there is low-drive, motivation and focus, laziness, depression, sadness, bad luck and negative energetic influences that can attract difficulty in life along with disease. The Yawanawa, Kaxinawa and Katukina believe that Sananga extends their connection into the spiritual realms. On an energetic level, this sacred plant helps to open the third eye, while decalcifying and activating the pineal gland. It clears negative thought patterns and mental confusion, aligns the chakras and the aura while clearing away negative energies.

For shipping to all countries except the USA, we offer two types of shipping:
    • Registered shipping: This comes with tracking and is faster than our free shipping.
    • Free shipping: For this service no tracking is available. It tends to be half as quick as the registered shipping. But hey, if you're not in a hurry and tracking is not important please do use this reliable shipping option!
For shipping to Canada we also offer DHL Express on certain orders  
For shipping to the USA, we offer four types of shipping: Registered PostNL: This option ships using PostNL, the national postal service of The Netherlands. Once the package arrives in the US, the USPS take over the shipping. Orders can be tracked with the tracking tool found at Free shipping: There is no tracking available for this reliable, but slower shipping method. Packages ship with PostNL and then are handed over to the USPS and deliveries may take up to 30 days. This option is not always available, depending on what you are ordering and where you are shipping to. Registered via NY: Depending on which state you are shipping to, this option will be available in order to try and ensure that there are no delays to your package as it enters the US. Packages are shipped first of all with PostNL to a NY forwarding address and then, from there, shipped on to you. We will update you on the tracking once your order is shipped from the Netherlands and then again once it is forwarded from NY.  Updates can take up to 24 hours because we work in different time zones around the world.
When you place an order in our web shop, you will automatically see the shipping options that are available, depending on your cart contents and the US state you are shipping to. For different states we use different methods.
Free Shipping from USA: For customers ordering only our Mimosa hostilis Hidden Valley and/or Mexican MHRBs, we have also established a warehouse that will exclusively ship to our customers from within the US.  This has the advantage of offering tracked shipping without having to pass through customs and a delivery time of only 3-4 working days. Orders will be shipped with USPS Priority mail.  This service is available for Mimosa only orders.  Any other products will need to ordered separately and will be shipped from the Netherlands.   Good to know: All of our orders are packed and shipped discreetly with only the obligatory information such as shipping and return address on the outside. Registered orders outside of Europe are sent with PostNL who hand your order over to the national postal service of your country. For instance in the US, packages are handed over to the USPS. Registered orders within Europe are sent with DPD. Fast and trackable at all times. Our Free shipping option is slow(er) but very reliable too. Estimated shipping time for outside Europe is between two to four weeks depending on postal flows.
For valuable orders we would advise choosing the Registered option.
