Trametes suaveolens (L.ex Fries) Fries., Polyporaceae

Diamond Willow fungus grows in the diamonds of Diamond willow. Its fragrance is strongly and pleasantly anise-like. The dried fungus has been used traditionally by Native Americans for prayers, ceremonies, spiritual baths and smudges, and cleansing or purifying of spaces. Diamond Willow fungus is known to cure headaches and migraines naturally and successfully.

To treat a headache or migraine, a very tiny piece of dried fungus is burned like incense and the smoke inhaled. The healing powers of Diamond Willow fungus are tremendous, making this mushroom species sacred.

We wild-harvest our diamond willow fungus in May and June in northern Saskatchewan.
