We also offer the shredded root bark to make your own Sananga.

Native Use

When extracting the plant’s liquid,  native healers infuse it with wellbeing intentions and prayers to bring about clarity and focus.  We have first accounts that traditionally the plant is used for healing various physical conditions as well as spiritual ailments. Tabernaemontana undulata is considered to clear the mind,  align one’s energetic field and trigger a new way of perception and awareness. Sananga is most often used for unlocking emotional, physical, or spiritual blockages and stopping unhealthy thought patterns. It is believed to have the capacity to rebalance and increase physical vitality while also uncovering deep roots of illness and obstructions that may have led to disease.

The ‘Yawanawa’, ‘Kaxinawa’ and ‘Katukina’ tribes believe Sananga extends their connection into the spiritual realm and facilitates a sense of openness and peace of mind.

Sananga is mostly valued 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 body’s vitality while also uncovering deep roots of illness and blockages that may have led to disease.

Local medicine men or women pour Sananga drops into the patient’s eyes improving the person’s long-range vision and texture. Indigenous people believe it can also be used to treat a broad range of ocular problems such as myopia,  depth perception, and image resolution. It has also been used in the treatment of other eye disorders such as glaucoma, cataracts, and even blindness, although no scientific study confirms it yet.

Furthermore, in Brazil,  indigenous people use it to increase their visual acuity for hunting in the intricate Amazon jungle. It helps to sharpen their eyesight and extrasensory perception so they may stay alert and focused. They believe that Sananga drops also enhance ‘panema’ (drive). When a person lacks ‘panema’, suffers low motivation and stamina, has blurred focus, laziness, depression, and sadness, all of which can lead to bad luck and negative energetic influences that bring difficulties in life along with disease.

The drops are known to exert a powerful effect on a person’s ability to experience visualizations and spiritual insights, particularly when applied before or during traditional ayahuasca ceremonies. Other traditional applications for Sananga are: to reduce fever, to cause convulsions, to enhance relaxation. Its also used to reduce symptoms of skin conditions, rheumatism, addiction treatment, and dental problems. It is also said that it counteracts snakebite wounds.


The Tabernaemontana undulata can grow to heights of 10 meters tall.  It can be found growing in various regions such as Brazil, Bolivia, Perú, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, the Guyanas, Panama, Costa Rica, and Trinidad. The plant is valued for both nutritional and medicinal use.

Scientific Information

The Tabernaemontana genus plants contain monoterpene indole and iboga alkaloids which are derived from the aromatic acid tryptophan and iridoid terpene secologanin.   Ibogaine is used in pain management and to treat opiate addiction. In low dosages, ibogaine is a stimulant and aphrodisiac, while in larger amounts it is a divinatory medicine, similar to both Ayahuasca and Peyote.

Recent studies of Tabernaemontana undulata have found a significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity of the plant’s chemical composition.
