Coprinus Comatus, SHAGGY INK CAP OR LAWYER'S WIG
The shaggy ink cap or lawyer’s wig is a young and distinguished mushroom. It was also used as a source of ink: as it ripens, its lamellae disintegrate into a liquid which ink can be obtained from. The purpose of this release is the spreading of spores, that is, preservation of the species.
The vitality mushroom has a favorable influence on the middle jiao due to its balancing, regulating and tonifying energics. It tonifies the yin and cools xue-heat. Thus, it is particularly well able to compensate for yin deficiency and to compensate for empty-heat.
