Known by its common name of sweet flag, calamus has been an esteemed medicinal herb in Europe since the Middle Ages. Probably indigenous to central Asia, it was used in ancient China by shamans, and in India to charm snakes. Ayurvedic medicine uses it to treat sleeplessness, neurosis, memory loss and fever. As an incense, it is used in Tibet to strengthen the nerves and increase concentration.


A pack of calamus contains 80 grams of dried shredded root. For a clear, uplifting effect: mix 1 tablespoon in a cup of hot water and drink this on an empty stomach. Strain and drink a couple of cups. For a mind-expanding effect: raise the dosage as required.


Calamus root contains high levels of essential oil with decadienal, caryophyllene, humulene, curcumene and beta-asarone – this latter being the primary inebriating component. Additional active chemicals found in the essential oil are methyl isoeugenol and cyclohexanone.


Pregnant and nursing women should not use calamus root as it is considered a uterine stimulant. Otherwise, no known health hazards or side effects associated with therapeutic dosages. But avoid overuse (many times the recommended dosage) as it may cause vomiting and further serious problems. Also, it may be harmful if consumed for an extended time period.

    Title : Sehr gute Wirkung, schrecklicher Geschmack
    Comment : Ich hab das Pulver bestellt und schon bei einer geringen Dosis kann man spüren das man aktiver wird. Ich habe einmal geschafft 30g auf einmal zu essen, danach hab ich alles wellig gesehen. Nur der Geschmack geht gar nicht. Es ist so bitter, das man es mit Honig mischen MUSS.

    Title : take care with calamus
    Comment : Besides that the calamus is a very good plant to treat all acute stomache and digestion problems it must be noted, that is strongly NOT RECOMANDATED for use longer that one month or any casual use for its PROCANCERIGENOUS nature. so, take care, should be used for acute problem and short term duration.
