The Xtabentún flower (Tubrina corymbosa) is a species of large vine that can be found in the Yucatan Peninsula and some countries of South America.
It is also known as coacihuitl, vado, angelito or bejuco de San Pedro, but the name “xtabentún” in maya means “vine that grows on the stone”. It is also known as “ololiuqui“, which was the name given by the Aztecs to identify some groups of plants.
Its large leaves and white bell-shaped flowers are very characteristic of this vine in the region.
Its seeds are known to cause a sense of euphoria, followed by drowsiness, used in rituals by ancient Mexican and Mesoameircan civilizations.
Bees love this plant for its nectar, for which it is a favorite in the manufacture of a Yucatecan drink, with anise and keeping the honey flavor that comes from this flower.
The Maya legend tells that in a village lived “Xtabay”, a woman who gave her love to anyone but helped others, and also lived “Utz-Colel”, another virginal woman but not empathic with people.
When Xtabay died, her body smelled like this plant and then, when Utz-Colel died, her body had a rotten smell, so full of rage and envy, she returned to Earth to kill all men in the form of the legendary Xtabay.
