Binomial: Acacia xanthophloea

Common names:
Fever tree bark, Mukanya kude

Mukanya kude is used by diviners in the Zulu tradition to treat physical and mental illnesses. It is also considered a powerful Oneirogen. The outer layer of the bark is a greenish-yellow colour that when dried, can have a slightly sulphuric smell. The taste of the bark is very slightly sweet with an almost bitter after taste, but very palatable with a teaspoon of honey in a cup of tea.

A normal, dream-inducing dose would be a teaspoon of powdered bark steeped in hot water for 5 minutes and taken an hour before bedtime. The outer bark is also ground up and used as a dream snuff.

Dreams are said to be prophetic and lucid.

It is important to note that some people simply stop recalling their dreams at all when they start using Silene undulata or any other dream herbs.
It is not fully understood why this happens, but often, these people will begin experiencing lucid dreams when they stop taking the dream root.
