Working on new songs in Seidsang Studio together with Gustav Holberg who is recording and mixing. In between the intensive work on music, we found time to go for a walk and got gifted some chaga mushroom we made tea from. On that same walk, a deer greeted us, 3 eagles flied above us and the ravens accompanied us along... powerful energies within nature infused into the flowing inspiration these days...
Chaga (Inonotus obliques) grows mainly on birch trees. It grows where the birch got wounded and covers the tree's wound, living in symbiose with it. The mushroom has a very slow growth, it takes several years before it can be harvested. it is best to leave the small ones in peace and give them good years to grow. When harvesting old enough ones, it is best to leave some of the mushroom still on the tree, this way it will grow back again within some years.
Here is a link about chaga (Inonotus obliques) for those of you who would wonder what it is:
"Chaga mushrooms have been used for centuries in Siberia and other parts of Asia as a medicine to boost immunity and improve overall health"
