A plant (specifically the branches) that is used in Zoroastrianism to reach intoxication, and through this divine power, known by the same name: Haoma.
Haoma was redefined by Zarathustra as the power that renews life, albeit in spiritual terms. Haoma is to a large extent a divine power evidenced in a real way, particularly in older Iranian religions. Haoma can punish people who do not honour him with sterility. For those who do honour him, Haoma offers healing remedies.
