A skilled apothecary encompasses the skills and knowledge of a physician, a botanist, an herbalist, an organic chemist and a pharmacist, not to mention the determination of a relentless hiker and forager so that they can harvest the plants, herbs, mushrooms and other materials needed. The finest apothecaries harvest the material and perform all the processing needed themselves to ensure the highest quality of ingredients and precision of preparation from start to finish.
Mushrooms are found abundantly in nature. Though not everyone might like them, they are a form of wild harvested superfood. What's a superfood, you ask? A superfood is a term for foods rich in nutrients (high nutrient density). That said, natural mushroom medicinal qualities are second to none. Hence today, we are focusing our attention on one of them, Lion's mane mushroom.
