How to Make Ayahuasca


Mimosa Hostilis: Mimosa Root : Magic Avalon Plants
Syrian Rue : Sweet Natural Health : Magic Avalon Plants


How to Brew Ayahuasca Videos are at the bottom of this page.

Most recipes found online call for shorter brewing times and guessing the pH and temperature levels. This Ayahuasca Brew has been perfected to a science to ensure a powerful experience every single time without guess work.

Note: This recipe is a VERY powerful brew. If you are fearful of leaving your body or have not experienced mushrooms, LSD, or any other type of psychedelic, you may want to begin with a smaller dose. However, we prefer to dive in head first!

MAOI: (Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors) In order to make DMT orally active you must neutralize the stomach acids with an MAOI. Ayahuasca uses a REVERSIBLE MAOI. This is not to be confused with anti-depressants or irreversible MAOI's which can be FATAL. Make sure to read the PRECAUTIONS section before using an MAOI.

DMT: Dimethyltryptamine is said to be the world's most powerful psychedelic and recognized as a religious sacrament by the United States government as part of the UDV's church services. DMT is only orally active with the use of an MAOI.

Syrian Rue: Is a reversible MAOI used to neutralize the stomach acids. In Ayahuasca, Syrian Rue is used in conjunction with B. Caapi whereas traditional Ayahuasca uses much higher doses of B. Caapi alone for this purpose.

WARNING: Syrian Rue is used in some cultures to provoke miscarriages. You should NEVER use Syrian Rue if you are pregnant.

B. Caapi: This is also known as the Ayahuasca Vine itself where the spirit of Ayahuasca resides. This is said to be the main teacher in an Ayahuasca experience while the other plants are referred to as “helper plants”, who assist by creating the visions.

TIP: B. Caapi is best for inner work and for going “within” your own spirit. If you are seeking healing (especially from addiction, bad behavior patterns, or physical ailment), a high dose of B. Caapi is recommended. B. Caapi also helps provide clarity and a “warm motherly embrace” into your experience. After you are purified with a few sessions you can skip the B. Caapi and use a Syrian Rue / root bark combination. However, first time travelers are encouraged to include B. Caapi in their first several experiences.

Acacia Confusa Root Bark: Native to Hawaii and Taiwan, the root bark of this tree contains between 1% and 1.5% DMT and 1% to 1.5% NMT. This is a beautiful feminine teacher that can bring peace, love, tranquility, and contact with higher dimensional beings. The root bark is typically red. Tree bark is typically white and contains little to no active alkaloids and thus should be avoided.

Mimosa Hostilis Root Bark: This is my preferred teacher with approximately 2% DMT and very little NMT. It is more of a masculine and “in your face” teacher. Be cautious, MHRB provokes more of an external “hyperspace” experience where you may encounter “rogue” entities and inter-dimensionals. While this sometimes occurs with Acacia, the Mimosa is not as warm or loving of a spirit. MHRB is recommended for the courageous and advanced traveler.

The Purge: This term is used to describe the process of vomiting before an Ayahuasca experience. While this may sound unpleasant on the surface, it is a vital part of the cleansing and healing that Ayahuasca has to offer. Do not fear the purge. It is actually a very welcomed and cleansing process and one you will look forward to in future experiences.

The Diet & Medical Precautions
Because Geohuasca utilizes a reversible MAOI, the diet is not as strict as traditional instructions. However, (for cleansing) the more you abstain from certain foods and toxins the more you will benefit from the healing. After you have been purified it will not be necessary to follow the diet as strictly.

1. A plant based diet is recommended for 2 to 14 days (the longer the better).

2. Abstain from meat, chicken, cheese, and dried fruits for at least 48 hours especially dried/cured meats like salami and pepperoni.

3. Avoid salty and spicy foods to minimize burning sensations during the purge.

4. Avoid sugar and sodas. (You are purifying yourself. No toxic stuff!!)

5. Do not eat anything for 12 to 24 hours prior to your ceremony (the longer the better).

6. Drink lots of water and flush out your system during the fasting period.

7. Do not drink alcohol for at least 72 hours (this will cloud the experience). Cannabis is OK but it can cloud the experience too but it's not as offensive to the Ayahuasca spirit as alcohol or other street drugs.

8. Do not take an MAOI if you are on any type of psycho-pharmaceuticals including anti-depressants, anti-psychotics, etc. You may need to refrain from this for 4 to 8 weeks in some cases. USE DISCERNMENT.

9. Do not take an MAOI within 7 days of taking MDMA or Amphetamines. THIS CAN BE FATAL.

10. SSRI’s and Anti-depressants can be extremely harmful with an MAOI. Please do your own research if you are on any of these or check with Your Doctor. You can ask them about “Harmene” and “Haraline” Extracts. They’re sold at vitamin stores as anti-parasitics.

Required Materials
- 50 to 200 grams of B. Caapi to serve two to four people.
- 100 grams of Acacia or Mimosa to serve two to four people (If you are in the Amazon).
- 3 to 4 grams of Syrian Rue seeds per person (If you are drinking Acacia or Mimosa).
- 3 gallons of distilled water
- 180ml Vinegar
- 1 digital pH meter
- 1 digital food thermometer
- 2 large mason jars or several small jars
- 2 or 3 stainless steel pots (no Teflon or non-stick)
- 1 or 2 white t-shirt(s) or Cheese Cloth Strainer
- 1 coffee grinder for grinding the Syrian Rue Seeds
- 1 or more sage stick(s)
-1 bucket per person for purging

Brewing Process (repeat 3 times for 3 to 4 hours per extraction)
Step 1: Add 2 to 3 liters of water to each stainless steel pot and bring to 205 degrees. Do NOT allow the water to get over 212 degrees at any time. The alkaloids will burn and your brew will be weak. Use the digital thermometer to bring to a perfect temperature then reduce heat to maintain (I turn the hob to setting 3 on an electric cooker).

Step 2: Add 60ml of Vinegar. (This is to break the cells and release the DMT) PH of 3.8 – 3.5. Always adjust pH after the water is heated otherwise the pH will drop to 3 or below (60ml of vinegar should acheive this).

Step 3: Add the Acacia or Mimosa to one pot and the B. Caapi to another pot (If using B. Caapi).

Step 4: Bless the materials and plants multiple times during the cooking process by moving the sage in a figure 8 (infinity) sign around the top and say a prayer.
This blessing is very important. When this step is not followed the brew is often very weak or simply does not work. You may call out to any higher spirit of your choice or simply Mother Ayahuasca or Mother Goddess. We prefer to call out to our Mother Isis.
“Mother Isis, we ask that you bless this brew with your eternal love to give us clarity and understanding in our visions. Please make the brew powerful and show us exactly what we need to see”.

**** Repeat the blessing multiple times during the process****

Step 5: At least every half hour check the temperature on both of the brews. You will notice water evaporating during the process. Add more water as needed and check the temperature and pH regularly.

You do not have to keep the volume of water at 2 to 3 liters the entire time. I usually end up with approx 1 liter of liquid after each extraction.

Step 6: After brewing for 3 – 4 hours carefully pour off the liquid into another glass container or stainless steel pot to simmer down later. Be careful not to remove the plant matter from the original pot. It may be necessary to let the brew cool down to allow the plant material to fall to the bottom of the pot.
If you use shredded bark you can filter it through a spaghetti strainer and retain the plant material like that.

TIP **The filter bag that comes with the Magical Butter Machine is perfect for filtering shredded or powdered plant material. **
Step 7: Add another 2 – 3 liters of water and repeat all steps until the liquid from all three processes are combined into one pot leaving out the plant matter.

Step 8: Combine all three extractions into one pot and use a white t-shirt or Cheese Cloth Strainer to filter the liquid two to four times. This will help remove sediment from the brew.

** At this point you can either simmer the liquid down immediately or you can place it in the refrigerator overnight. If you leave it overnight you will see a layer of sediment form at the bottom at which point you can decant the liquid while leaving the sediment behind.

Step 9: Put all of the liquid back into a stainless steel pot and simmer between 150 and 200 degrees until the total volume of liquid is about 24 ounces.

Step 10: Pour the brew into a mason jar while using a white t-shirt to further filter out sediment. You can repeat this multiple times by pouring the brew from jar to jar.

Step 11: Place the mason jar in the refrigerator until you are ready for your ceremony. It is suggested to leave it for at least 6 hours (overnight), but the longer you leave it the more sediment will separate and the more tasteless the brew will become.

** If you are drinking the same night you can place it in the freezer for about 30-60 minutes to allow the sediment to separate. Do not allow it to freeze **

Step 12: When you are ready to drink, pour off the liquid into another mason jar leaving the bottom layer of sediment behind. You can run the remaining liquid through a white t-shirt a few more times. You should be left with about 16 ounces of liquid at this point.

**If the Acacia/Mimosa brew is 16 ounces, 2 ounces per person (per dose) will be a normal dose and 4 ounces per person (per dose) will be a very powerful experience. (Recommended). You should drink a second dose after you purge.

** B. Caapi should be reduced to four to eight ounces (two to four ounces per person) as it only needs to be taken once in the evening.

** Never adjust the dose of Syrian Rue. It will do nothing more than make you nauseated. 15 gram doses have been reported to be fatal.
