Amazonian Hypnotic + Sedative + Nervine

Mulungu has long been used in Brazil, Peru and many indigenous tribes in the Amazon as a natural sedative. It has been used to calm an overexcited nervous system and promote a restful sleep.

In both North and South American herbal medicine systems, mulungu is considered to be an excellent sedative to help calm agitation, mood disorders, chronic stress, and to treat other nervous system problems including insomnia, anxiety and even epilepsy. It has also been widely used for asthma, bronchitis, inflammation of the liver and spleen, intermittent fevers, and to clear obstructions in the liver.

Herbalists and practitioners in the United States use mulungu to quiet hysteria from trauma or shock, as a mild, hypnotic sedative to calm the nervous system, to treat insomnia and promote healthy sleeping patterns.

Recommended Intake: For a stronger dose, it's recommended simmering it as a tea, or broth for 5-15 minutes. Recommended with fresh ginger or cinnamon sticks. To help with anxiety, or pain relief, it's also recommended within a healing soup, where 1Tbsp is calculated per person or serving, and integrated into the broth.
