  oral Calea zacatechichi (tea)
I have taken Calea 4 times now and had 3 wonderful nights of vivid dreams, I usually remember about 5-6 dreams a month so Calea really seems to be helping me out.

I got 2 ounces of calea, it came in a a few days and I was very pleased with my overall order.

I used a big pot and added 28g calea to 18 cups of water and let it come to a very soft bubble not even a boil for 20-30 minutes.

1st time
I ended up drinking around 2 and a half cups (it tastes exactly like earwax by the way). Chugging the tea makes it much easier to get down, I do not sip it. Anyways I ended up not being able to sleep after I took it this first time because I had to clean up the house. I ended up going to sleep about 7 hours afterwards and had no dreams I could remember.

2nd time
I drank around 3 cups of the tea and went to sleep 2 hours after ingestion. My dreams were truly vivid and amazing. I ended up having a dream of buying some bud from a girl in a mansion in Alaska (I worked up there this summer) a few days later I had a huge party there and remember everyone around the poolside having fun. I remember being pissed off that cops were there and nobody could do anything because they were acting like party security and for some reason they were welcomed by the owners of the house. I ended up breaking my friend Jacobs phone for trying to snapchat an embarrassing pic of me. I was at the gas station a day or so later (in dream time) and saw him but avoided him. I avoided him again at school and ended up getting an invitation to work at a potato processing plant (I live in Idaho now and it's potato harvest time, I also worked at a salmon processing plant this summer) I went to work there with my brother in law (who I live with) and met a girl I really liked. Another girl tries seducing me but I pushed her away and then I woke up.

3rd time
I drank 3 cups of the tea and had a awesome vivid dream. I had a dream that I found a secret basement in my house that was creepy at first but then very inviting. I remember green carpets and old wood furniture inlaid with gold. There was a lot of stuff down there that I started to look through and I found many awesome things but the one that stood out was an old black hand gun with a revolver like mechanism with 3 cylinders for bullets witch I found a box of. I ended up paying close attention to a girl who was suddenly down there collecting valuable gold watches necklaces etc. She was dressed like someone in the Victorian Era in a violet dress. We got along well and ended up making out before my dream ended.

4th time
I drank 3 cups of the tea and had this dream. I was new to a unknown town and was only about 12 for some reason when I began getting bullied by around 6 kids. I knew they were weak but I didn't fight back for some reason and they pinned me up agent a wall and I couldn't breathe. Suddenly we were in a parking lot and I decided to fight back, I didn't notice that I was my normal age again and ended up beating up a bunch of 12 year olds. I was confronted by the people my own age about picking on little kids and was shunned by them. Everybody seemed to hate me but one person seemed to understand what had happened, like he knew they were my own size picking on me a few moments ago. I ended up in a snow cave digging at the walls for hash with my brother, in the dream it made sense but Idk what was going on now. We ended up getting handfuls of hash from the ice wall and selling it to people in the town. I advised my brother to come dig with me again and it took some convincing but he came with me. This time when we were digging and gathering hash it turned into opium poppies instead but we were still digging after knowing this because we were still getting hash from them somehow. But now we were finding awesome stones while digging that were already polished, lapis lazuli, carnelian, jasper, and many others. Now somehow we knew we were in a native village and a shaman was there with us. He was interested in talking to me about the necklaces I was wearing. I had my adventurine and ruby in zozite malas on that I have in real life and I thought he was interested in them but he wasnt. He wanted to know more about a brass chain and pendant I was wearing that doesn't actually exist. I told him what it was because I knew somehow I think it was shiva but I'm not 100 percent sure. Me and the shaman started picking up stones that now littered the cave and they were beautiful. Among the stones was an evil eye necklace that the shaman urged me to pick up and wear. Later when I took the necklace out of my shirt to look at it was an eye of horus. I woke up soon after.

My views on calea
I have had a very awesome time using calea, and it produced vivid dreams every time I used it correctly so far. It's produced much more detail than I've ever had in dreams before, so I'm a believer in the stuff. I left out most of the details from each dream for the sake of time but each time I've drank the tea it has the same result. Meaningful and vivid dreams.
