Una de Gato Uncaria tomentosa, cat’s claw (un-ya day gat-o)
The una de gato is used for removing blockages in the energetic system and also energy that has become stuck and can cause sickness. The head medicine spirit of this vine is in the form of a black jaguar. The vine itself has protruding thorns that look like cat’s claws from which it takes its name. The jaguar is fearless, focused and determined. It tracks the energy that needs to be unblocked and swallows it, removing it from the energetic system, re-establishing a balanced flow of energy. Connect with this tree for purification, Inner security and confidence. Like the jaguar who through its self-assurance and confidence does not shy away from adversity but engages life head on. The colour associated with this essence is Indigo blue, representative of the Jaguars regal-ness. This colour is intense and electric.
Each essence has been prepared with its own medicine song, an icaro. Icaros are a form of communication between the shaman and the spirit world. The icaro is used to set the healing intention and to ask the tree for assistance. Each essence has been uniquely created by choosing certain qualities of each tree and calling forth its medicine with the icaro.

- Let it go through you
EN: I have tried several of sacred tree essences from Mimi. Every single one is different. I can't say I had a pleasant experience with Una de Gato as this got me involved into tough episodes of my life connected to physical challenges and choices I have to make. Emotionally it was like an explosion. I am grateful to the knowledge I was given an experience I have had. I am looking to diet on Una de Gato in future as I have a feeling my journey is not yet completed with this medicine but I am fine for now.
RUS: Получил в лицо. Спасибо. Буду пить ещё. Что-то в этом есть.

- Una de Gato - the jaguar, the panther is creeping through the jungle - strong, majestic, inviolable. Could we need sometimes a little bit of the strength of this wonderful cat? Una de Gato provides exactly this - thank you very much!
- Rollercoaster ride of flow
After receiving this essence after taking the first drops within a few hours I cried as emotions come up this lasted 2 days . Intense emotions coming up . Dreams were vivid and clearing . It mellowed out for a week then I had a week of intense fears and this was hard at times to navigate through it . It brought up anxiety and deep fears but by breathing through it I integrated this into my body .
Some past emotions came up from relationships which needed to be cleared . Now after been guided back to health and flow I am still working with the jaguar energies to move forward . This essence is strong , challenging, and empowering as it gets you to move back into personal power. Thank you Una de Gato x
- Recommend from YouTube blogger Ayausca Magic.
Just fantastic stuff. I can't do Ayausca in the United States.
So this is the closest thing I can get for healing purpose and it works like magic.
- Just a beast. Love it. It's grows on you slowly. And take you to the wilderness.
Was going through an emotional time when I started with Una De Gato, and it really helped in bringing those emotions out and letting energy flow more freely. I also felt some good work being done on my digestive system. It has helped me have the courage to take on bigger blockages in my life that I know I will need to face.
Thanks a lot <3
- I bought Una De Gato because at that point in my life I just felt I needed to let my past go, as its been 7 years now since I walked out on my husband and left two businesses that were doing so well and a lovely home but the marriage was draining me. I still kept holding some form of resentment. When I started taking this Essence, a week later, not only did I accept my present life, but my friends and work colleagues also started behaving differently, mostly there were more friendly and helpful. This was a real plus and I feel its due to the positive energy I have around me and I do feel very positive and most of all confident.
