Desmodium molliculum (Manayupa)

Herb, Powdered from Peru (SKU 0085)

Finely powdered Manayupa herb from Peru. Harvested August 2018.



Desmodium molliculum is native to the Peruvian Andes and is found throughout South and Central America as well as Africa and Asia. Unfortunately not much is known about the plant, and descriptions of the plant and its properties can vary. Desmodium's common name comes from the Quechua word “Ranamanayupana” roughly translating to “Having more qualities than man can count”.

The herb can grow up to 3 feet in length and about 20 inches above the ground. The leaves are three-foliated and the flowers are purple, small, and arranged in clusters. It produces fruit, and the seeds are bean-shaped. There are several related species that are supposed to have similar properties.

This is a natural product, used as incense or in perfumery, or as an ingredient of incense and other perfumery or potpourri preparations.
Some incense plants or products may have some history of other folklore purposes, but we offer this product for its use as incense. Not food grade, not for consumption.
