The native tribes of the region which now comprises Mexico have been using sun opener for hundreds of years. One of the names of this plant implies that this herb is very closely associated with the sun. As drinking the Sinicuichi tea prepared from this plant produced a euphoric sensation, while yellowing or brightening the vision, the plant has been named "sun opener".
Traditionally, the leaves are removed and allowed to wilt a bit, crushed and combined with cold water, then placed in the sun for a day to make a tea. The following procedure for dried foliage is consistent, and repeated endlessly wherever one finds information about Heimia.
Dried herb may be steeped in hot water and allowed to sit in the sun for 1 day before drinking. Also known as the Sun Opener in Mexico. It grows naturally in the highlands of Mexico and can be found in South America. The natives of Mexico and Central America have been using this herb for shamanic purposes.
According to a number of sources, the sun opener may possibly have very potent anti-inflammatory attributes. The oval shaped leaves of this herb are long and glossy and they extend from a stem, which becomes woody when it matures. The sun opener plant bears clusters of yellow flowers between its leaf arrangements. When the flowers drop on the ground, the bud encloses a solitary seed pod. These seed pods have a spherical shape and brown color - almost resembling a coriander seed. The seed pods of sun opener contain numerous minute brown seeds. In fact, the seeds of this herb are exceptionally strong.
