Camalonga Strychnos toxifera (cam-a-long-ga)
This essence is made from the seeds of the camalonga tree. It is a teacher plant that works in the dream time. Connect to this tree to stimulate lucid and vivid dreaming. The colour of Camalonga's energetic medicine is light blue, representative of sky, water, spaciousness and expansiveness. This colour is cool and calm.
If you are interested in simultaneously purifying, healing and lucid dreaming follow the instructions that are sent with the essence. If you are just interested in the lucid dreaming aspects..take 6 drops before you go to bed. Can be used as often as required.
If you would like to learn how to lucid dream alongside using the essence, I would highly reccommend reading Lucid Dreaming: A Beginner's Guide to Becoming Conscious in Your Dreams by charlie morley http://www.charliemorley.com/lucid-dreaming-a-beginners-guide/
Each essence has been prepared with its own medicine song, an icaro. Icaros are a form of communication between the shaman and the spirit world. The icaro is used to set the healing intention and to ask the tree for assistance. Each essence has been uniquely created by choosing certain qualities of each tree and calling forth its medicine with the icaro.
Other traditional uses
The seeds of this tree are used by shamans known as ‘Camalongeros’ as a medium through which they do their healing work. Although Camalonga is used in the Amazon, it does not come from this region; it grows in the Andean highlands. Camalonga is classified as a teacher/power plant. Male and female Camalonga seeds are macerated in sugar cane alcohol (aguardiente) along with male and female camphor; sometimes white onion is also added. The shaman will connect to the doctor/medicine spirits of the camalonga. The brew is then ingested by the patient before going to bed. The Camalonga spirits work on straightening a person’s energy whilst the person is dreaming.
This tree is a saced teacher plant and used by shamans for its curative/spiritual qualities. It can be used as part of a shamanic dieta or as an admixture to Ayahuasca.

- It works!
The effects are undeniable, the dreams that it has given me are very interesting. Coherent, vivid and meaningful / symbolic dreams so far. It's subtle but also unmistakably an effect / result of the Camalonga Essence.
I also feel that the Camalonga Essence works to heal and straighten the energy during the day as well.
Another reviewer mentioned confrontation dreams, I also had a confrontation dream (possibly more than one), but it felt cathartic / healing. I was able to say things in the dream that I held back on saying in waking life.
I've tried so many things over the years, only one or two ever really worked or had an effect. This stuff is magic / the coolest thing ever.
The Icaro CD is also magic / amazing, you have a very beautiful voice.
- Does what is says on the tin
- This essence does what it says it does. It makes your dreams more intense and vivid. It doesn’t however mean you will get lucid with it just by taking it. That is something you need to work on but this essence facilitates lucid dreaming very well.
- A must-try for lucid dreamers
- I took it twice before bed and second time resulted in a lucid dream. Then I did the 30 day dieta and after about two weeks (first week I found emotionally challenging) I began having regular lucid dreams, most of them WILDs (Wake Initiated Lucid Dreams). I found I could stay with hypnogogic images longer and that it was easier letting the dream form around me and stay conscious. This frequency of lucid dreaming continued for a few weeks after I completed the dieta course, until I went back to having mainly Dream Initiated Lucid Dreams (DILDs) as before. The essence certainly increases lucid dreams, but it would be essential that a person is carrying out a regular lucid dream practice for it to work, and then be able to cope with very vivid hypnogogic imagery. If you want to learn there are many How to Lucid dream books by very experienced authors such as Charlie Morley, Clare Johnson and Robert Waggoner to name but a few.
- Slight dream enhancement effect
- 6 drops taken at bed time or around 4am have a slight effect on my dreams, which then became a bit more vivid, but far from lucid- though I had lucid dream in the meantime, but not when I had taken the drops
- dreams of conflict - energies being cleared?
I have had two bottles of camalonga. I have always had vivid dreams, but for me this really seems to give me dreams of confrontation, or arguments, or conflict with people I have known throughout my life. Some of the encounters relate to possible problems I may have perceived but never really talked through, other times I can't instantly relate to the drama that's happening but I am open to the idea that those feelings run much deeper and I had not overtly considered them before. I presume running through these kind of interactions in dreamtime is perhaps helping me to purge some of these energies in a safer manner? Either way, I am happy to continue using it, particularly if it's helping me to work through stuff.
Hi Mary, yes you are correct the essence has been prepared for guidance, cleansing and for dreaming. So sounds like you are purging!
- excellent product
I took this essence as per the instructions and followed the diet for about three weeks
My dream recall was considerably enhanced although I didn't notice any effect in terms of increased lucidity
The information on the site and with the product was clear and helpful
I have recommended to my dreaming friend and they have had good results
- Es una estupenda esencia. La he probado hasta acabarla y me ha ayudado a mejorar mis sueños lúcidos. Sin duda volveré a pedirla.
I used camalonga every night to help me with aware dreaming. I had some interesting nights!
- Beyond our expectations: Camalonga!
- It helps to get a brighter more consciousness feeling, more alertness and more happiness. We‘re soo happy with your Camalonga and both me and my husband take it every day and have these good results. Thank you so much
- I was looking forward to trying this essence to see the effects it would have on my dreamtime. I do believe this essence brought about very vivid dreams, especially since I haven't had the essence, they have become a bit less. Of all the essences I've tried, this is definitely one I will get again.
- Effective essence.
- I purchased it hoping it would stimulate my dreams and it did just that. Also very pleasant tasting.
- Profound integration.
- This by far was my favorite essence, it had me work through issues and resolve things that had troubled me, all through my dreams. I was sad when i was done with this essence as i felt the spirit of the tree with me the whole time.
- Растения Амазонки не перестают восхищать
- Я впервые попробовал Камалонгу по возвращении из ретрит центра в Перу, где участвовал в церемониях Айяхуаски. Мне тяжело отделить остаточный эффект напитка айяхуаски от эффекта экстракта камалонги, но сны определённо стали интенсивней. Однажды я попробовал перед сном выпить 8 капель вместо 3 (рекомендую хорошенько подумать прежде чем повторять), и моя ночь превратилась в непрекращающийся просмотр сновидений.. Камалонга определённо действует и днём, может возникнуть потребность потупить и застыть с остекленевшим взглядом. Экстракт изготовлен из коры дерева и настоян на бренди. Сегодня допиваю последние капли, может теперь удастся выспаться без сновидений :) Рекомендую тем, кто хочет учиться через сны или уходить в медитации в околосонном состоянии. Чувствительность индивидуальна. Мне трех капель четыре раза в день хватало, чтобы ощутить эффект
- I had dreams that would work me through major issues...
- This was my first essense, the bottle lasted a full 5 weeks and I also did the first week dieta as I wanted the permanent results. I could feel the essence with me the whole time, which was a comfort. In the beginning I had dreams that would work me through major issues I had struggled with a long time, like certain fears and self esteem issues, etc. It would fix the issue. I always awoke feeling pleasant about the dreams I had, and that has not gone away since I've stopped the essence, it changed the way I dream now, which I love. Also I have Mimi's Icaro's cd and if I feel I need healing of any kind, I listen to it as I'm falling asleep and I feel better in the morning.
- Camalonga essence
Camalonga essence had on me a very deep impact, first week I had lot of night dreams with different messages , I had a very strong lucid dream the second week of dieta which help me to unblock hide feelings from the past.
I had also emotional moments were helped me to have a better understanding of myself.
I recommend this beautiful essence to anyone want travel in their own soul and space.
Thank you Mimi for your beautiful work ❤️
- Cotton Candy Jungle
- Just did a 2 or 3 drops of sacredtreeessences camalonga then did some energy work. Wow. Totally amazing experience. Joyful, uplifting, visionary. My energy was turning into flowers and birds and flying off through my chakras which turned into flowers. Was like the jungle with cotton candy clouds. I used some agua florida and it was an exstatic waterfall applying it to skin and the scent moved thundering energy through my spine
- Lucid dreaming
- My personal experience when I use Camalonga is that my dream space is much more vivid and lucid, my 19yr old loves working with it for the same reason. But when I use in class teaching my students how to journey we use it to help bring Into reality what their heart desires.
- Beautiful essence!
- This essence definitely stimulated very clear and vivid dreams for me. I do generally dream, but they can be muddled and difficult to recall. With the essence, I remembered my dreams every morning, and as I said before, they were very clear and vivid. It also brought up dreams with emotions or thoughts that I had not been aware of day to day, so definitely an enlightening essence.
- Dream on
- I did had some wild ride in my dream. Cut down on my nightmare a bit lol
- This product is great, I had very deep dreams, and a few lucid dreams about flying and this while still smoking tabacco, drinking wine. I have stopped since a few days so will be reordering this product to see what happens when my body has less drugs in it (!!!) I am also new to lucid dreaming.
- It changed the way I dream now, which I love.

- Dream-wonder essence
Thank you for this wonderfull essence. With the camalonga I have the most poetic dream journeys, and just had the most incredible one: the dream of my life, told with such beauty and in a poetic way. The dream was underlined with music, and told masterly.
I am so greatfull. Well I must maybe also add that I did a combination with your ayahuasca essence which maybe did enhance it further. All my love Svend
- Did not work for me
I was hoping to get lucid dreams but unfortunately haven't so far....
- It works!
- The Camalonga essence works very well, the first time I took it - it took me into a very deep sleep, later I received some very vivid and lucid dreams which were not random but actual teachings from the spirits themselves - for the best results I went on the restricted diet for a week and after taking the essence I listen to the Icaros CD which enhanced the effects greatly
- catalyst to deep internal, spiritual transformation.
The Camalonga essence clears negative emotional patterns from past life trauma. This trauma created blocks in your current life, and can present themselves as bad luck, poverty, accidents, bad interactions with others; and may try to come out as health problems.
The Camalonga essence is a catalyst to deep internal, spiritual transformation. It brings out any underlying problems to address it. Your dreams will become very realistic, and you will work through the negative energy in the dream realm - the realm of thought and emotion. The Camalonga tree is extremely strong in the fire element which means it is very good at transforming bad energy into its higher state.
After you wake up, you may receive an important life lesson that the negative energy was there to teach you.
- WILDs with Camalonga
first I wanna thank you for your work you do with such a great passion and knowledge, its amazing!
I have the Camalonga essence from you and my lucid dreaming rate developed as well as the quality of my dreams. With Camalonga I am able to go during my sleep very deap into my innermost, my fears but also my hopes and wishes. I had some very successful WILDs with Camalonga what I normally don't.
- Thank you Mimi!
- I purchased the Camalonga essence from Mimi based on recommendations of my lucid dreaming instructor & I'm so glad I did! My dreams became really vivid & I can remember most of them in the morning. I also noticed that the nature of my dreams changed- less processing dreams & more symbolic ones. I recommended it to a friend & he had a lucid dream on the 1st night! Excellent results! Would definitely recommend it!
- I took three drops before bed and i already lucid dream on the same night.
- A testimonial by Charlie Morely included in his latest book 'A beginners guide to becoming conscious in your dreams'
Traditionally male and female Camalonga seeds are macerated in sugar cane alcohol by the shaman along with male and female camphor. The brew is then ingested by the patient before going to bed. The Camalonga spirits work on straightening a person’s energy whilst the person is dreaming thus leading to lucid dreams.
This all sounded a bit too good to be true so although I accepted some of the essence from Mimi and agreed to try it for a few nights, I was left unconvinced as I discovered that the essence was a kind of homeopathic solution that didn’t actually contain any psychoactive compounds.
In fact the first time I tried it me and my fiancé were joking about how at least we would know it wasn’t the faith effect at work if I got lucid because I had such little faith in it working at all!
And then the dreams came…
Huge powerful clarity dreams, lucid dreams, lucid nightmares, false awakenings and even some sleep paralysis thrown in for good measure! In the four nights I used it I had 6 long lucid dreams and several big dreams of archetypal significance.
One night that week I forgot to take it (I was travelling and got to bed late) and had a suitably normal night of normal dreams. The next night I took it again and the lucidity started again like clockwork. In the end I actually stopped taking it because I didn’t want to get dependant on taking 6 drops of plant essence every night but every now and again to break a lucidity drought or just to check that it still works I take a few drops and get ready to dream.
So as I ate my words and felt embarrassment at my prejudice I realised that was wrong to underestimate the power of the camalonga essence and am grateful to Mimi for opening me up to the spirit of the camalonga spirit.
- Last night I remembered 8 dreams!
- I've been taking Camalonga each night before sleep for the past 5 nights and last night I had the most amazing array of dreams. I usually only remember maximum 2 but last night I remember 8, including some links between different ones. The dreams were also very different in nature, I jumped between 2 dreams through a portal in the pattern of a carpet at one point! They were very vivid and almost lucid but I was questioning the reality of the waking state rather than the dream state, which was interesting. Lots of interesting messages in the dreams too for me to consider today. So thanks Mimi for the wonderful essence!! xxx
