Sassafras is a tree with bluish leaves, which grows in the forests in the northeast of the USA.

Use: Used are the bark of the roots and the wood. For a preparation as a tea: Cook 20 g in 100 ml of water for 30 to 50 minutes. The oil can be extracted with alcohol or distilled. Safrole is not soluble in water. A starting dose is 200 mg of the dried oil. The tea mixes well with ephedra. Sassafras also goes well as an ingredient for an aphrodizing herbal tea mixture.

Active constituents: Safrole, a substance that also occurs in nutmeg and parsley. MDA and MDMA can be produced from safrole, two substances that are listed in narcotic drugs laws. It might be that safrole is transformed inside the body into these and/or similar combinations.

Effects: Large doses of tea act stimulating and sudorific. Safrole acts stimulating and hallucinogenic; in larger doses it stimulates the libido, in smaller doses it calls forth euphoria.

Side effects: Safrole is strongly liver-damaging. Avoid repeated use. In the laboratory safrole acts carcinogenic in rats. Excessive doses can cause vomiting, shock, speech disorders and death by central respiratory paralysis. The moderate use of tea is harmless.

Suppliers: Dried roots from herbal and ethnobotanical stores, seeds und plants are available from nurseries specialized in exotic plants.
