Clean and live with altitude

To the towns and cities markets come people from the country side to sell herbs, plants and fruits. In Peru and countries with the Andes these sellers often came or get their products from the mountains. In Urubamba Cusco we talk to a two sellers who explained us the uses of some of their products.

I was expecting to learn about their use in drinks and food. Besides that I was surprising to hear about “Giganto” cactus. Their most well know name is San Pedro, and it is still used in mystical ceremonies. In the video she explained me how to use to wash the hair. I wonder how much waste could I reduce if I wash my hair with a solution based in Giganto Cactus? This might be a hashtag “live with altitude”. Can this plant purify my hair and wash prejudices? I talked to some people who live in mountain cities and they confirm that it is San Pedro cactus. They also confirm that it can be used to wash hair. I am happy I have discovered an alternative use for a plant that is known mainly for their use an hallucinogen. After talking to this woman I feel more grateful, mother earth is sacred.

In last post video you see the seller explaining. Thank for subscribing and following media.
