Reindeer moss – the enchanted plant
In old legends, reindeer moss was considered an enchanted plant. Reindeer moss covered mountains and also valleys. For this reason, it was a blessing for farmers. But as the farmers did not want to share their wealth, the medicinal plant was banned. Since then, reindeer moss has only grown under snow. Despite all the legends, reindeer moss is nevertheless a very respected plant in the Nordic countries.
