Zornia Lateriflora is currently gaining attention amongst ethno botanical collectors after hiding in the jungles of South America (especially Brazil) and Mexico where it was traditionally used as a sedative, a relaxant and a sleep-inducer. There are some indications that zornia may even work well with dreaming due to its hypnotic qualities. Natively, this perennial herb is known as zornia diphylla, maconha brava or barba de burro, and it is believed to have been used by Ancient Gods in that region. In fact, the herb appears in Albert Hoffman and Richard Evan Schultes’ legendary book, Plants of the Gods. Zornia’s recent attention seems largely due to the fact that it is an ingredient in some of the more popular herbal incense blends. Like baybean, it is considered a good and versatile mixing herb. We are proud to be one of the few privileged vendors offering this natural rarity.
**This is our grade B herb. The growers did not store this batch properly, and so it was exposed to humid conditions. As a result, the herb has oxidized to a darker color and does not smell quite as fresh as our typical zornia. Otherwise, the quality of the herb does not seem to have suffered. We are offering this at a significant discount over our standard zornia. For the money you will save, many would probably see this as a considerably better value. We have this available in bulk quantities as well. It is ideal for making herbal extractions where aesthetics are less of a concern. **
