More info

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 powder. 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.

    It says powder, but was the leaves
    It says Powder, but it was the leaves, still yet to try, will it be the same? Brew like tea yes?


    Not for me
    The taste is really horrible. And no effect


    Ich habe mir Calamus in Pulverform bestellt und es direkt ausprobiert. Als ich an der Tüte roch kam mir bereits ein widerlicher Geruch entgegen aber den empfand ich nicht als sehr eklig. Als ich einen Esslöffel in einem Glas (250ml) in heissem Wasser auflöste wurde das Wasser zu einer hellbraunen Brühe und ich musste mich stark zusammen nehmen damit ich das Gebräu trinke. Als ich einen Schluck trank wurde mir schlecht weil der Geschmack so eklig war. Daraufhin habe ich das Glas weggeschüttet und nicht weiter getrunken, deswegen kann ich nichts zur Wirkung sagen.

    Fait effet
    J'ai des soucis de digestion et respiratoire et faire des infusions régulières de calamus m'aide beaucoup. Attention à ne pas l'utiliser plus d'un mois et attendre un mois avant d'en reprendre à nouveau.

    prett happy
    I tried it for the first time, mixed with some hot water in the morning. It did get me active, but the taste is unbearable, it's like having pure mud, beter have it with some juice!


    Le gout n'est pas terrible tout seul...
    A mélanger avec le lotus bleu, c'est pas mal...


    bitter aber gut
    wie schon von tinturas erwähnt nicht zum Dauergebrauch geeignet (Beta-Asaron ist scheinbar krebserregend) aber sonst super pflanze. service von zamnesia wie immer bestens!


    Ottima alla sera un paio di ore prima di dormire


    Sehr gute Wirkung, schrecklicher Geschmack
    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.
