Unlock the Power of Magical MushroomsPosted by Curious Elixirs on
Our latest elixir is a cosmic wonder full of blackberry, blueberry, fig, spices and blackstrap molasses. It also features the most powerful adaptogens we’ve used yet: mushrooms!
This spirit combines three bright stars of the fungi world that have been consumed for centuries thanks to their many benefits: Chaga, Reishi, and Lion’s Mane.
Chaga: From Destruction Comes Beauty
This amazing mushroom grows on damaged trees (for example, where the bark has been broken by another limb falling).
Wildcrafters, or foragers, often go hunting for these guys in areas affected by major wind storms.
Chaga has been used for centuries, popping up in ancient Chinese and Russian medicine.
Known benefits of Chaga:
- Digestive health
- Immune support
- Antioxidant boosting
- Contains vanillin, so it’s tasty too!

Reishi: “The Mushroom of Immortality”
Another key player for traditional Chinese doctors and herbalists, Reishi is a fascinating fungus.
Also known by its Chinese name, Lingzhi, Reishi plays a mythological role in ancient Chinese literature. It’s even sometimes cited as an immortality-giving panacea.
When wildcrafting in the spring, mushroom hunters look for flashes of shiny red through the greenery. This woodland gem adds a hint of bitterness to No. 8.
Known benefits of Reishi:
- Energy boosting
- Immune support
