Traditional & Modern Use:
The Siberian strain of this marvelous mushroom known as Fly-agaric may date back as far as 3500BC. In ancient Eastern Siberia they depict anthropomorphic figures with mushrooms appended to their heads. The Chukchi people now inhabit that region and are known for still using Amanita muscaria. Fly-agaric has been traced all over the globe since the beginning of time. They are very common in art; such as fairytale paintings and entertainment – as seen in Alice in Wonderland, Smurfs and Mario Brothers video games, even in cultural traditions such as Easter and Christmas. It is believed that the majority of Christmas symbolism originated in Siberia and its connection to the Amanita muscaria. You may have wondered about some of the little things we do at Christmas and why?

  1. Why do we bring a pine tree in our house and put colorful presents under it? It may not be a coincidence that Amanita muscaria are colorful and commonly grow under pine trees.
  2. Why do we put presents in a sock above the fireplace? In Siberia they dry freshly picked A. muscaria in a sock in front of the fireplace.
  3. Why flying reindeer? It has been documented that reindeer often would eat Amanitas and prance around in an intoxicated state.
  4. You will often see Amanita muscaria on Christmas cards.

These organic mushrooms make an extraordinary and unique potpourri. If burned on a charcoal tablet or made into an incense stick or cone, the intense smoke can purify the room allowing a new positive energy
