What is Kambo?

Kambo is the secretion of the Phyllomedusa Bicolor or Monkey Tree Frog from the Amazon Rain Forest. The secretion contains many bio peptides that activate the body’s natural immune system and has been found to be very beneficial. Kambo has stepped outside of the Amazon and is reaching across the world as a powerful spiritual teacher and is praised for its healing and purgative abilities.


Kambo is applied topically, via small burns on the top layer of your skin. Small points of Kambo are applied to the exposed layer of skin and are quickly absorbed into the lymphatic system. The Kambo activates quickly once applied, and you may feel changes in body temperature within a few minutes. When the Kambo comes on fully, people feel a variety of physical and metaphysical sensations, potentially followed by a physical purge. Purging has a wide range of expression and may include vomiting, bowel movements, sweating, crying, belching, laughing, or the beginning of menstruation. You also may experience none of these sensations; if purging does not occur, it does not mean that your experience is any less effective. Kambo is truly unique and works with people in a variety of ways. A Kambo Ceremony is not a hallucinogenic experience, despite some misconceptions. During the experience, your practitioner will care for you and monitor you closely, ensuring that you are safe and comfortable and that all of your needs are met. The total effects are short-term and the peak experience will last 20-45minutes. After the session, you may feel replenished and full of energy, or tired and ready to rest.  Kambo has the ability to work in various ways according to the clients priorities and intentions that have been set. Each session is unique and can look very different from previous sessions. Kambo is not psychoactive or illegal and is safe when used with a certified Kambo Practitioner. During your session, your practitioner takes special care to closely monitor and care for all your safety needs.

What you need to know!

Make sure to work with an experienced guide. Kambo is legal in most countries and available online, but it can be difficult to apply the medicine without experience.

A practitioner will not only help with positioning and dose amount (which differs for men and women and the sensitivity of each person), they will also let you know when and how much water to drink, how to position your body, and other aspects that will make the experience more comfortable.
