      Heimia salicifolia


To make what turns out to be a literal tincture of fearlessness, I brewed a handfull of the two herbs and bottled them. Drank it. This was one of the most bitter drinks I ever drank but it provided very desirably affects for the hiker and outdoorsman in me.

I was alone in the woods at night, in a very coyote populated region at night. The two herbs, gave me a very calm relaxed feeling. No matter what the dangers were I couldn't resist picking up and stick an exploring the pitch black forest. The only downfall was the muscle soreness in the morning. I also smoked this combination for the same effect, but it took at least 4 or 5 bowl packs. I'm not one for tripping or being thrown into other realms

. I felt safe, secure, and not anxious at all.

Later me and some friends made a campfire where I made another tincture and drank more. I was so contented I passed up a free light up on a nice looking blunt.

An actual 'adventurers potion'. Effects- Anti-anxiety, ambition and motivation increased, over-all contentness.
