Blue Honey: What Is It And How Do You Make It?

Blue honey is beautiful, tastes great, and sends you on a psychedelic journey! What's not to love? Find out how and why to make magic mushroom honey, and how best to enjoy it yourself.

Magic mushrooms are absolutely wonderful. Eating them, on the other hand, is less so. Though always worth it, shoving a handful of dry and dusty stems and caps into your mouth can be a challenging start to an otherwise fantastic experience.

So, how can you make the consumption of magic mushrooms a little more palatable? A few options exist, such as the revered lemon tek, but today we’ll be looking into blue honey, a beautiful and effective way to store and consume magic mushrooms. Far more than a colourful, psychoactive novelty, this method of psilocybin consumption is versatile and psychonaut-approved.

Find out how to make magic mushroom honey, and how to take it, here!



Blue honey, also known as magic mushroom honey, is the name given to honey imbued with the psychedelic properties of psilocybin. Though it does often turn blue, this is not a given.

Fortunately, mushroom honey is very easy to make and offers a reliable (and tasty) storage solution to keep your psilocybin supplies fresh for longer!


Indeed, honey infused with psilocybin is likely to turn, at least in part, blue. But why is this the case? In truth, the exact catalyst behind blue bruising in Psilocybe mushrooms is not confirmed, but the leading theory states that psilocin—the compound psilocybin converts into to exhibit psychedelic effects—turns blue as it oxidises. Though a cool phenomenon, this also means the bluer your blue honey is, the less psychoactive it could potentially be.

If you’ve ever grown magic mushrooms, you likely noticed that they bruise blue when handled or cut. Lemon tek or mushroom tea may also turn a vibrant blue hue after a time. And with greater exposure to oxygen, the bluer these preparations will be.

Though this reaction hints that the potency of your mushrooms is degrading, in the case of honey, you needn’t worry too much about a bit of blue, as most of the psilocin is likely to remain intact. However, you shouldn’t seek to make it any bluer than it naturally turns!



All things considered, blue honey is very easy to make. The most difficult part is getting hold of the shrooms themselves, but if you can get them, you’re pretty much good to go.


  • Dried magic mushrooms (the amount is determined by your supply and preferences)
  • Airtight glass jar
  • Sharp knife or coffee grinder
  • Honey (any kind of normal honey will work, but it’s much easier to mix shrooms into runny honey)


  1. Cut or grind your dried magic mushrooms into a fine powder. The finer the powder, the greater the surface area to volume ratio, and the easier it will be for the honey to extract the psilocybin.
  2. Now, create layers of mushroom powder and honey in your airtight jar. First, create a layer of mushroom powder, then pour honey on top. Repeat this process until the jar is full. Obviously, the more mushrooms you add, the more potent the final product will be. mix all of the honey and mushroom powder together in a bowl, and then pour this into an airtight jar.
  3. Seal the jar, and store in a dark, cool environment. Light, heat, and oxygen can degrade psilocybin.
  4. Leave for at least one month. Up to a point, the longer you leave mushroom honey, the stronger the infusion. Although, this is true only to a certain extent.
  5. Eat and enjoy!



Blue honey is a pretty versatile way to consume magic mushrooms, allowing for full-blown trips or even microdosing. Best of all, at least for those who abhor the taste of shrooms, blue honey should have a much more pleasant taste and texture.

Shroom honey can be taken in a variety of ways. You could put it on toast, or just eat it on its own. It's worth noting that food tends to significantly reduce the effects of psilocybin, so eating other food alongside your psychoactive honey could make for a lighter trip—which can be a good or a bad thing.

Alternatively, you could mix your honey into a cup of tea or warm milk if you want a really comforting consumption method. Don’t add it straight to boiling water, though, as psilocybin begins to break down around 72°C. Let your hot drink cool for a few minutes before stirring in your honey.


Dosing mushroom honey involves a lot of estimation. In theory, you could work out roughly how many grams of shrooms there are per gram of honey, although it’s unlikely the powder will be equally distributed throughout the honey, so even this won’t be that accurate.

You’re better off just starting low your first couple of times. When you first try it, perhaps just eat a teaspoon and see how that affects you. If you take off to the moon, then you'll know it’s very potent. If you just get a little buzz, on the other hand, you'll know you can play around a bit more. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll quickly get an understanding of how best to dose it.


If you’re into microdosing, shroom honey can be an effective and delicious way to achieve this!

As figuring out dosing can be a little tricky, it might not be the best option for those who microdose at incredibly low or specific levels. But for those with the freedom to play around and find out how much honey makes for the ideal microdose, it can certainly be a tasty way to get your regular dose of psilocybin.



Longevity is actually one of the main reasons to make blue honey. Rumour has it that once you’ve created your mushroom honey, it can retain its potency for years.

Honey is antiseptic and doesn’t develop mould, and neither will anything contained within it. So your psilocybin is safe, in this sense, once it's encased in the honey. Moreover, the honey will act as a seal against oxygen (along with your airtight container). So, as long as it’s stored well, in a cool, dark place, most of the factors that degrade the potency of magic mushrooms will no longer affect your blue honey.

Therefore, in theory, mushroom honey can last indefinitely.



This really depends on you. Blue honey is definitely cool, but it extends beyond a novelty, potentially. We would, however, advise that you make a few considerations before proceeding to make your infused honey.

First, ensure you have enough mushrooms to make for a decently concentrated final product. If you only add a couple of shrooms to a full jar of honey, you’re unlikely to feel much of anything once it’s infused. So make sure to stock up. If you can only get your hands on a relatively small amount, it might be better to infuse your stash into a single batch of tea or use the lemon tek method, for example. Also, consider that if you use all of your shroom supply to make blue honey, that means it’s the only way you can enjoy your mushrooms—which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

For those interested, with plenty of shrooms, making psychedelic honey is certainly a worthwhile endeavour. Not only will it last a very long time, but it offers a fun and tasty way to take shrooms beyond filling your mouth with bone-dry stems and caps! And for those who want to try out microdosing, it’s great too.

All going well, making and taking magic mushroom honey is easy and effective, and certainly shouldn’t leave you disappointed!
