Silphium is made from the felled oak of Kytäjä manor. Silphium as a name refers to a mystical plant of ancient Greek times, which is suspected to have become extinct as a result of its overuse. The plant was used as a perfume, aphrodisiac, spice and for medicinal purposes. The plant was so significant that its image can be found printed on silver coins of the era.
