Spiritual Properties:

Centring. If there was only one word used to describe this mushroom, it would be centring. It is indeed so centring and grounding that one could almost mistake the feeling for sedation, but rather it is a foundation of stability and calm from which one can stride forth in dedicated action. It is a medicine that increases discernment, sharpness and focus, enabling a kind of warriorhood that is precise and swift, rather than overly fiery and brutish. With this discernment comes a kind of joviality, if one is seeing clearly, one can appreciate the ways in which to weave through various challenges and obstacles that achieves the desired result or destination most efficiently. It enables tenacity, but also the tendency to pause before embarking on addressing those issues. Jupitarian herbs often increase awareness around the management of resources, mental, emotional, physical and spiritual… Chaga is no different, it knows what we must do to enjoy life and sometimes that is to put in the ‘harder’ yards, except Chaga makes the harder yards seem less hard. It helps us to appreciate the little things that must be undertaken to bring forth the bigger picture.

*Ens preparations are a type of alchemical procedure involving menstruum made from purified fire-ash salt and due. 100% alcohol is used to complete the extraction. The dose for ens medicines combined with water decoctions is normal 7-12 drops but for pure Ens medicines only 3-7 drops are necessary.
This product option is a combination of a Chaga Ens preperation with a chaga decoction. 


-Anticoagulants: Taking Chaga mushroom along with anticoagulant drugs or blood thinners may thin the blood too much and may thus make excessive bleeding a possibility. Some anticoagulants include: Warfarin, cyclosporine etc.
