sananga new york

Sananga (also called Becchete) is a traditional Amazonian eye medicine made from the shredded root of rain forest shrub. The shrub, Tabernaemontana Undulata, is part of the Apocynaceae plant family, therefore the active ingredient in Sananga is Ibogaine.

This plant medicine operates on many levels of healing. 

Physically, it cleans and refreshes the eyes and has been indicated in the treatment of glaucoma, cataracts, astigmatism, conjunctivitis and dry eyes. Visually, it gives the environment greater texture and depth, improving both color perception and image definition. There are many success stories with regards to improved vision and several reports of very surprised eye doctors!

On a spiritual level, sananga has the ability heighten spiritual awareness, to open the third eye, to remove negative energies and to provide clarity on a much deeper level. 


Sananga is applied with a dropper - 1 or 2 drops in each eye. Depending on the strength of the batch, the experience can be quite intense. Stinging, burning sensations are felt and the first couple minutes can be painful. However, the pain is an important part of the process. Leaning into the pain and breathing through the discomfort leads one into a space of deep relaxation and liberation. Tapping is also a helpful tool in the first few minutes. 

Pregnant women should not take sananga and contact lenses should be removed prior to application. 

*When used in ceremony, sananga will be applied in the resting stage after the Kambo has been removed*
