Psychotria viridis is known as a “Master Plant Teacher” and has been used by shamans, medicine men and women for centuries to reverse illnesses. In Peru, the Machiguenga indigenous people apply fresh leaf juice directly into the eyes to treat migraines and increase alertness during hunting. The Andoke people infuse the crushed leaves with water and apply it to their eyes to promote sharp vision and understanding.
Psychotria viridis is a perennial tree or shrub native to the Amazonian lowlands and commonly found in wet, tropical forests throughout northern South America and much of Central America. It grows to approximately five meters in height and produces papery elliptic leaves, grayish to reddish-brown when dried. Its open, inflorescent flowers turn into small red fruits.
Psychotria viridis is a part of the Rubiaceae family and can be easily confused with other plants of a similar genus. It is commonly used among shamans and has been studied for its therapeutic effects as an ingredient in Ayahuasca.
