    Santeria Palos

    Hi,

    I'm wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I'm looking for the latin names of various Santeria Palos and herbs:

    Abre Camino
    Boton De Oro
    Cambia Rumba
    Palo Amansa Guano
    Palo Bomba
    Palo Espuelde Gallo
    Palo Muerto
    Palo Para Mi
    Palo Torcido
    Palo Ven a Mi
    Palo Vence Batalla
    Paraiso
    Pica Pica

    I've been searching google and it seems to be difficult to find the information I'm looking for.

    If anyone has any suggestions or a good book to buy that would be greatly appreciated. I have Carlos Montenegro's "Santeria Formulary and Spellbook" and this is where I got these various herbs from but there are no latin names or anything to point me in the direction of what trees and herbs they actually are.

    Thanks

    Some weeks ago I was looking into this , searching via google not much luck , so I started looking at the palo books at amazon some of them one can view some sample pages , google books might also have more books , boton de oro I found somewhere online
    a santeria site mentions boton de oro = abutilon indicum its a plant not a tree , medicinal plant. Someone online posted a series of photos on Santeria herbs. Sometimes searching unusual things takes time will post again if and when I find others. Take care.
    Greetings Morganite9Violet.

    It's cool and it snowed more yesterday. I can't wait for summer. I hate winter. Richters is a good place...I've ordered seeds from them for years. I did more research and found this:

    http://www.scribd.com/doc/61963348/Afefe-Ogo-Kindoki

    It lists Palos with their latin names starting on page 40.

    I also put all the palos from Carlos' book into a spread sheet and there are only a few that I can't find latin names for. I'm not sure if he spelled some incorrectly or what. lol. Here is what I have:


    Abre Camino (Trichilla havanesis, Trichilla spp.)
    Aceituno
    Amansa Guapo (Schaefferia frutescens)
    Amargo (Picramnia Reticulata, Picramnia sp, Aspidosperma megalocarpan)

    Jina
    Jobovan (Cedrela spp.)
    Justicia (Justica spp)
    Malambo (Canella winterana, canella alba, canella sp)
    Manga Sayas
    Moro (Psychotria Brownei)
    Muerto (Latua pubiflora, Galphimia glauca, galphimia humboltiana)

    hello
    there is in Cuba a museum of medicinal herbs in Cienfuegos but I am unable to find a website for it , perhaps they know what these are by the proper latin names , will keep searching. Another good place for seeds is www.thompson-morgan.com/ they are UK
    based but do ship worldwide .

    Thanks for your help. I'm going to keep looking too. It's kind of like a scavenger hunt. Hahaha

    I will post any new info I find. Hopefully this info is helping you as well.

    Good morning , I found a site with photos spanish/english www.eleda.org/blog/2008/11/page/3/ cynodon dactylon = espanta policia , looks like a grass .
    Over on google books I found ojancho mentioned in a spanish novel mentioning some person trying to sell oak wood for ojancho its a tree we are looking for , latin name not found
    tried looking at some spanish tree sites nothing found .
    My pdf are very slow in opening but I found a swedish study on endangered plants in Cuba but they failed to identify several plants only folk common names mentioned .
    I am trying to search via images , botanicas , yerberias very seldom post a photo of the herbs but if I find one I try to match it via other photos online .
    The guy at www.photomazza.com takes lovely photos and ads all the names the plants are known by and is lots of photos to view and search through , happy hunting & greetings & have a great weekend
