Our Reishi Extract is a complete tincture that combines the full spectrum of active mushroom constituents for the most potent potion possible. Reishi is known as ling zhi, meaning, “spirit plant” or “tree of life mushroom” in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Considered warming, astringent, nourishing, detoxifying, and tonifying, Reishi offers adaptogenic properties that support the body’s response to both internal and external stressors while deeply nourishing and building immunity from the inside out. Reishi is a mushroom of longevity and nourishment. As such, it is to be taken as a daily tonic over longer periods of time, during which, one can come to experience first-hand the enduring allyship of human and fungus as the reishi subtly supports, nourishes, and accompanies us on our wild journey through life. To use: as a daily tonic, take 1-2 dropperfuls 1-3 times per day

Dimensions: 1.5 x 4.75", 4.4 oz.
Materials: Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum), Organic Cane Alcohol, Spring Water

First Curve Apothecary
(Logan Square)

We are a small, local community apothecary comprised of two people: alex and stef. We offer place-based herbal preparations that integrate and reflect the overlapping ecologies of body and place. Our offerings include herbal tinctures, bitters, mushroom extracts, and teas that use locally sourced herbs rooted in the Great Lakes Bioregion. Each preparation is formulated and handmade by community herbalist and teacher, Alex Williams in Logan Square, Chicago.

We believe that herbal medicine is a people's medicine, that herbal medicine can be a source of community resilience, and that the process of healing extends beyond ingesting herbs and mushrooms; that sharing space with, collecting, and processing each herb is part of healing, and intricately bound to the sharing of our work with you.
