(Amanita muscaria) Poison
Folk Names: Death Angel, Death Cap, Magic
Mushroom, Redcap Mushroom, Sacred
Mushroom, Fly Fungus
Ritual Uses: There is speculation that at least
some of the mystery religions of classical
times centered their secret rituals around
the use of the amanita.
Magical Uses: Place on the altar or
in the bedroom to increase fertility.
Unfortunately, the amanita is so virulently
poisonous that it is unwise to use it.
