Introducing African Dream Root (Silene Capensis) sourced from the Eastern Cape, South Africa.

Silene capensis, also known as African Dream Root or Xhosa Dream Herb, is a sacred plant native to South Africa.

Botanical Information

Silene capensis is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Caryophyllaceae family. It is characterized by its rosette of narrow, lanceolate leaves and clusters of white, star-shaped flowers.

The plant typically grows in sandy soils in grasslands and rocky areas, primarily in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa.

Silene capensis is renowned for its thick, white, tuberous roots, which are the primary source of its medicinal and psychoactive properties.

Traditional Use by the Xhosa Tribe

Silene capensis has a long history of traditional use among the Xhosa people of South Africa, particularly among their shamans and healers.

The Xhosa tribe, especially the diviners and shamans known as amagqirha, traditionally used Silene capensis as a sacred plant to induce vivid and prophetic dreams, enhance spiritual insight, and communicate with ancestral spirits.

The roots of Silene capensis are typically harvested, dried, and ground into a powder, which is then consumed as a decoction or infusion. It is often prepared as a ceremonial drink or used in rituals and ceremonies to facilitate spiritual journeying and divination.

Shamanic Practices

Among the Xhosa people, Silene capensis is revered as a potent tool for accessing the realm of dreams and visions. Shamans and healers use the plant to connect with the ancestral realm, receive guidance, and gain insights into healing practices and community issues.

The use of Silene capensis is often accompanied by rituals, prayers, and chants performed by the shaman to invoke the spirit of the plant and create a sacred space for dreamwork and spiritual exploration.

The Xhosa believe that Silene capensis has the power to reveal hidden truths, resolve conflicts, and bring about healing on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
