Curated Items in Your Experience Pack

Every curated box is a little different, as you would expect from such hyper-local or truly foraged items, so not every box has all the items listed. Below is a quick start guide you to using your items. Be on the lookout for Instagram & Facebooks posts as well as more in-depth articles in the Crew area.




Mushroom Lovers


Reishi/Lion’s Mane/Cordyceps Tincture

- Take a dropper full by mouth 1-2x a day or by adding to a beverage for increased mental functioning.


Mushroom Salt

- These are finishing salts. We recommend doing a small taste test first by taking an item, such as a cooked piece of chicken or a simple salad dressed in oil, and sprinkling plain salt over one half and the finishing salt over the other half. Take time to note the differences, and then enjoy playing with the flavors.


Dried Mushrooms

- First, rehydrate by pouring boiling water over to steep for 30 minutes or until softened, but do not throw out the water! Save it as a cooking liquid or mix with miso for an Asian soup base. Maitake - earthy flavor, chop and add to wild rice, soup, or stir fries with rich, dark sauces. Chanterelles - apricot aroma, slice lengthwise and add to light pastas, creamy sauces or finish creamy soups. Be sure to cook all wild mushrooms before consuming.



Flowers & Self-Care


Calendula

- A cure all healing flower that can be made into a tea, added to baked goods, sprinkled ontop of yogurt or infused into oil for topical application.


Muscle Salve

- Excellent for achy muscles or used on the temples when a headache strikes. This one has a very mild scent and light texture unlike many manufactured ointments.


Spicebush Tincture

- Add to a beverage before or after meals to aid in digestion, to help reduce fevers, colds and rheumatism. Especially good to help reduce candida, a bacteria that feeds on sugary items and helpful if you’re transitioning away from sugar in your diet.


Incense

- These are handmade with foraged items and no chemical binders. Place on an incense burner or a heat resistant surface away from flammable items, light and allow to smolder.


Smile Herb Shop Sinus/Allergy Tea

- Boil 2 tbsp per 12 ounces of water for 5 -10 minutes. We recommend adding 14-16 ounces of water as boiling will evaporate some liquid. Excellent as a preventative measure for those who suffer from seasonal allergies or for immune boosting. You can make a double or triple batch and keep in the fridge for 5 days.

Contains: Stinging Nettles, Elderflowers, Elderberries, Ground Ivy, Eyebright, Golden Rod



Tea & Spices

Tulsi Fields Triple Lemon

- Boil 2 tbsp per 12 ounces of water for 5 -10 minutes. We recommend adding 14-16 ounces of water as boiling will evaporate some liquid. You can also use this tea as a soup base by steeping in coconut milk instead of water and adding one or more of the following: garlic, shallot, ginger, galangal, spicebush berry, orange zest, chilis, keffir leaves, prickly ash berries.


Honey

- These honeys are all locally grown which means 1) they are actually honey and not a dyed sugar paste 2) they are antibacterial 3) each batch has a different aroma. In addition to adding honey to tea, try adding it to your next pork roast with warming spices, put a little bit into a stir fry with apple cider vinegar and soy sauce, or mix equal parts honey with sour cream for an easy fruit topping OR a naturally exfoliating & hydrating facial mask.
