History and Folklore:
Shiitake has a long history of use in folk healing. The use of Shiitake, which derives its name from the Shii tree, an oak of central and southern Japan upon which Shiitake most often grow, dates back to ancient China before the spread of rice cultivation, at a time when most daily food was picked wild in the forest.
Growth and Habitat:
Shiitake grow in groups on the decaying wood of deciduous trees, particularly shii, chestnut, oak, maple, beech, sweetgum, poplar, hornbeam, ironwood, mulberry, and chinquapin. Its natural distribution includes warm and moist climates in southeast Asia.
All of my tinctures are made with fresh plant matter that has been either ethically wildcrafted from contaminant free areas or it has been grown organically in my own garden!
I use 100 proof food grade alcohol which means each bottle has 50% water 50% alcohol so each drop is a balanced 1:1 ratio and is ready to use straight out of the bottle!
I offer two common sizes of lead-free glass dropper bottles 15ml & 30ml! The 15ml is ideal for your pocket and taking with you on trips and the 30ml is the perfect size for your remedy cabinet at home!
Each tincture label displays dosage suggestions!
Did you know that every purchase gets us even closer to opening up our nonprofit hands-on herbal learning farm called "Dinner still needs cooking" a place where you can come and learn side by side with me for free?!
