History of Salvia Divinorum

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

Salvia Divinorum is an herb of mint family and is known for its good and bad effects on human body. Salvia extracts are being in use only for past 10 years so it is still considered very new to Salvia’s history. Though the awareness and knowledge about Salvia’s history is very limited but researchers have found some indications that it may also have been used in much earlier times by the Aztecs.

The unheard plant, Salvia Divinorum was first discovered in Seirra Madres Mountain Range in Mexico. It was used for spiritual and medicinal purposes by the Mazatec Indians. It is said that Salvia Divinorum was used by natives to enhance vision and to provide relief from pain. At this time researchers were not aware of Salvia Divinorum.

The Swedish anthropologist Jean Basset Johnson was the first modern researcher to become interested in Salvia’s history. In the year 1939, he noticed that Salvia leaves have been used for making tea by Indian Mazatec. During his investigation on the use of psilocybe mushroom amongst the Mazatecs, he found out that they also used Salvia for sacred ceremonies and healing purposes. Though Johnson documented about Salvia in the year 1939 but it was Daniel Siebert who identified the psychoactive affects of the herb in 1990s. After Siebert’s finding not much research has been done on the herb.

But With an ever increasing demand of the herb, more scientists have given emphasis on research related to Salvia’s history. And soon researchers would be able to feed us with complete information on Salvia’s history and the facts related to the herb.
