It’s a common problem these days, being haunted by unwanted sex dreams of dead ancestors. And fortunately, there is an ethnobotanical cure. The Nitinaht people of Vancouver Island discovered that chewing fringecup, Tellima grandiflora, repels lusty ghosts.
What other medicinal uses might there be for this common northwest native plant of the forest? It is said to improve night vision, but only if you’re a woodland elf. Humans could try making a concentrated tea to stimulate the appetite. This would be useful for people who are ill or not on a diet.
