Sinicuichi, Sun Opener
Sinicuichi is native to the southwestern USA, Mexico, and Central America. It has been used since the Aztecs, and currently is used as a traditional shamanic herb in Mexico.
Traditional preparation involves soaking leaves in a jar of cool water, and leaving it in the sun for 24 hours. The tea may be used internally or externally.
Sinicuichi is used to create a mild, pleasant, drunk effect. Vision may appear yellow and sounds may seem far away, although still visually sharp. It may increase body temperate slightly, and can be used externally for a variety of ailments. External uses include insect repellant, reducing poison ivy rashes, and soothing sore muscles.
