Sananga is a beautiful healing remedy that has been used by Indigenous tribes in the Amazon for centuries. Sananga is a member of the milkwood species in the family Apocynaceae, which is specifically sourced from the bark and roots of the Tabernaemontana Genus shrubs found in the Amazonian regions of South America. The shrub is brewed in a special way and formulated into an eyedrop, that is administered in both eyes and is said to bring healing on all levels.
This particular brew is made by three neighboring tribes in the jungles of Brazil: Puyanawa, Katukina, and Nukini. Profits go directly toward real families, and allow the tribes to preserve their cultures.
As with any natural medicine, it is to be revered and used with intention.
Sananga is said to enhance eyesight and has long been used by indigenous tribes to prevent and treat ocular diseases like glaucoma, cataracts, near-sightedness, and blindness. Sananga is also commonly used to treat skin diseases, infections, arthritis, cancer, and spiritually, to clear a person of what is called panema—anxiety, depression bad luck, negative energies, and laziness.
