About Syrian rue
Growing from a perennial woody root, Peganum harmala is a bright-green, dense, herbaceous succulent. The plant is rarely over two feet tall and generally appears round and bushy. The leaves are two inches long, born singly and finely divided into long narrow segments. Syrian rue has been suggested to be the original haoma plant of Persia once creating an entire religion around it’s powerful presence. Syrian rue may also have been used as an entheogen by the mystery religion that surrounded the god Mithras. In the middle east dried capsules of the Syrian rue seeds are mixed with other plants and used as an incense during prayer and in Turkey specifically, the dried capsules are hung around inside houses as protection from malevolence beings.

The tree itself grows up to 8 meters and the wood is dark reddish brown with a yellow center. With Ayhuasca analogs, the inner root bark is used exclusively (MHRB). Mimosa hostilis is thought to have been used ceremonially by ancient peoples of South America long ago. The tradition was lost and then picked up again some years later.
