Fungi

Birch and Willow fungus

As insect repellent, pieces of birch or willow fungus were burned on a plate to repel mosquitoes.

Puffballs

The brown powder inside the puffballs fungi is used to treat weeping sores when there are no bandages to cover the area. The powder is also used on burns when the blister has broken and the burn area is weepy.
