Haoma or Hom is the healing energy (Yazad attributed the power of healing) and also the name given to the healing herb, Ephideris Vulgaris. In the reign of Kai Khushro lived the ninth Shoshyant also named, Hom.

It is said that at least four Persian heroes who had reputable sons had invoked Hom to begat progeny —- Vivanghat had Jamshid; Athwya had Faridun; Thrita had two, Urvakhsh and Kersasp; and Pourushasp had Zoroaster.


It is believed that centuries before the birth of Zoroaster, the Hom Yasht was recited and the Ephidera Vulgaris (Hom plant) was used for healing and was said to produce no adverse side-effects*. The plant juice was collected by mashing it while reciting the Hom Yasht. The extract was then prayed upon to infuse it with healing and health-giving powers. The juice of the plant is a very gentle intoxicant. The plant extracts were considered efficacious in furthering spiritual progress of a soul.

In those ancient times, the plant was used for healing, as an aphrodisiac and to stimulate alertness and awareness. It grows in most terrains and spreads rapidly The Hom of the Avesta and the Som in Indian mythology are the same plant.


* This is no longer true. Today we find that there are side-effects though not of a serious nature. The patient may experience dizziness, restlessness, anxiety, irritability, heart pounding, headache, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting. It is also advised that Ephidera should not be used with other stimulants including coffee. Modern medicine uses Ephidera to treat bronchospasm, asthma, and bronchitis.
