4/1/14 A fresh shipment of our Acacia Confusa just arrived to us!
Eternity in a Box is proud to be able to offer to our customers, top quality and freshly harvested Hawaiian Acacia Confusa Root Bark! As show in the picture above, our root bark is shredded rather than powdered to maintain aromatic potency.
Our Large Piece specimen range in size between the giant 6 in pieces and the 1-2 in pieces as shown in the various pictures.
Our Acacia is harvested responsibly and ethically in Hawaii. Lateral side-roots are harvested from trees ranging from 25-80+ years old. This minimizes the stress to the trees being harvested from.
Acacia Confusa is sometimes referred to as the ‘Rainbow Tree’ or the ‘Thinking of Each-Other Tree’ in Taiwan where they grow naturally. Good vibes huh ?
These trees are originally native to Taiwan, though were brought to the Pacific region years ago. They grow vigorously in Hawaii and are even considered of a higher medicinal value than the Taiwanese native trees.
Acacia Confusa has been used in traditional Taiwanese medicine to help heal blood disorders as well as for detoxification. The more mystical application involves preparation into an Ayahuasca-like brew, and has been utilized for visionary and spiritual purposes. This plant is sometimes chewed by natives or even smoked to produce psychedelic states.
This plant is unique in that it is sometimes brewed without any MAOI containing plants when used for shamanic visioning. Whereas, the South American traditional ayahuasca brew involves the combination of tryptamine rich leaves (Chacruna) with Caapi vine which contain betacarboline compounds. The psychopharmacological reasoning is not well understood as to why the tryptamines are active without the use of MAOI plants in conjunction.
The tannins and pigments can be used as a natural dye as well, making this plant very versatile.
We sell this herb for ceremonial use as an incense or to be meditated with, NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION! The Tryptamine profile in this plant is not to be taken lightly, KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND PETS!
