I have little doubt that most people have atleast heard the name Ayahuasca, but do you know what it is? Ayahuasca is a powerful spiritual medicine prepared as a drink by the indigenous peoples of the Amazon. It's made from the Banisteriopsis Caapi vine, the Psychotria Viridis Leaf, and Chagropanga. It's praised and known for its very strong hallucinatory effects, and psychedelic experiences that surpass anything known to the western world, producing a truly profound spiritual and life changing experience.
"I feel like a lot of women in their mid-late twenties have this nostalgia for witchcraft or the occult, and it's partly due to growing up with films like The Craft or shows about being a teen witch.
