This plant has been used in healing and ritual since ancient Egypt. Long used in the Middle East as an incense to ward off the Evil Eye, it is considered to defeat anyone who would do harm to the user, and was used at times of transition such as marriage or birth.
Modern psychonauts report experiences involving synesthesia, or the mixing of sensory input, and flight to other planes, where teacher-beings are encountered and interacted with. Syrian Rue is also said to expand consciousness in time.
Personally, we find Syrian Rue to be one of the more efficient herbs for astral travel, in a way that is even abrupt, but for someone who has difficulty letting go and journeying, it is often the jolt needed to be successful.
Caution: if you are currently taking any type of MAO inhibitor or psychiatric drug, pharmaceutical, or herbal, you should consult a physician before using Syrian Rue, as fatal reactions can occur.
Do not use Syrian Rue in combination with alcohol, sedatives, narcotics, or other mood-altering substances. Additional potential problems exist; be educated and responsible about your use of this powerful plant.
Due to legal restrictions, we cannot ship Syrian Rue to the US state of Louisiana, or to the countries of Australia or Canada.
