Manuka Wild Rose, Leptospermum Scoparium

Rose brings out Devil’s Club’s inner sweetness, and Devil’s Club brings out the thorniness of the Rose. Together they help people emerge in the fullness of who they are. 


Sensual Damiana

Turnera diffusa:

Enhance the sensations in the body. Gently warming Damiana, which brings blood flowing to the pelvis, helps to connect the Cauldron of Incubation with the Cauldron of Motion. which inhibits MAO-B, the sister enzyme of MAO-A. MAO-A breaks down all of our major neurotransmitters, but MAO-B breaks down only dopamine, so inhibiting MAO-B will tilt the balance in favor of dopamine. Damiana is a light at the southwestern horizon reminding us that though the night descending is dark, morning will come. Bitter, warming, and aromatic, Damiana grounds us into our bodies, stirs our heart to quicken the rhythm of the movement of our blood, gently opens the airways, and relaxes the tension we hold to allow the blood to flow freely to all of our parts—and where blood flows, awareness goes.


Geeth N Jaw , Oplopanax horridus

or also call Devil’s Club 


This plant is been call a heal everything plant. It does make sens to me the First Nation also call this plant he one truth medicine. 


It use to be use ceremonially. I have notive having very intence dream, usually re afirming my psychic Ability,  showing me the truth in my dreams at night about some of my relations. But your experinces could be very different then mine.

Depending on your paterns.  if ready witness I have notice.


Coast Salish peoples have long engaged the plant in protection magic—but, though their ritual and medical science and technology inform my understanding of the plant. 


Devil’s Club claims its space. Sharp spines protect tall stems that open into a canopy of leaves high above the ground and, in late summer, explode into clusters of red berries. Its medicine can teach people to claim their space as well.


I can tell you that Devil’s Club grows where the forest has been disrupted by a clear cut, a landslide, or a flood. It protects rich soils and the wildflowers that grow in them, because its spiky stalks prevent big creatures from blundering over them, and its great leaves shade the ground. I can tell you that it is so hard to remove by hand that it stopped the northward expansion of the railroads in British Columbia. I can tell you its green buds tipped with purple pulsing life in spring. 

But you still will not know Devil’s Club. And Devil’s Club will not be ready to join you in your work until you have made your own relationship. And then your magic and medicine will not resemble mine. 


Devil’s Club (Oplopanax horridus) when a person needs to reassert their sense of self and their right to be alive and embodied in the world.


Interestingly, as herbalist, Ryan Drum notes: 


Devil’s Club uses fierce mechanical disruption by rushing water, windfall tree rip- ups, and even heavy machinery as a dispersal/ propagation strategy: pieces as small as 6 inches long with intact bark can grow roots and sprout small stems and leaves after months of being submerged or just lying on the ground or being buried up to a foot or more in leaf debris or stream gravels. Instead of fearing localized habitat disruption, devil's club thrives in it as long as the greater habitat remains stable.” (2000) 


I am always very careful when giving Devil’s Club to someone whose life is ripe for big changes: I make sure the person I am giving the plant to has a stable “greater habitat” in their life; I tell them that this is a plant that can bring big changes and ask whether they are ready for them; and often I pair Devil’s Club with Rose (Rosa spp.) to bring some sweetness in the midst of the shifts to come.



Safety considerations: Care is required when harvesting, as the spines can become deeply embedded in flesh, and the wounds they create can become infected. 

Ecological considerations: While Devil’s Club is locally abundant in many places, its increased global popularity has caused overharvesting in many areas. This overharvesting threatens the relationship between Indigenous communities and the patches of Devil’s Club they have worked with for countless generations. I suggest working at a drop dose level with a tincture made by a harvester with impeccable ethics and a personal relationship with the plant, our working with the flower essence.
