Mushrooms, like the histamine-response-mediating reishi mushroom, are some of our greatest allies when it comes to balancing the overactive immune responses that cause allergy symptoms. This formula helps bring back immune balance while gently drying up excess water and mucus with ingredients like nettle, elderflower, and goldenrod.
All Forest Folk Fungi offerings are prepared using a proprietary double extraction process and made in cooperation with foraged and organically-grown fungi and plants, and all wildcrafting is done with deep respect for fungal friends in the mountains of southern Appalachia.

Forest Folk Fungi is a medicinal mushroom apothecary located in the foothills of Appalachia. Founded in 2015 by Ali and Joe Banks, who are cultivators, medicine makers, and gardeners, Forest Folk offerings are created by honoring strict wildcrafting practices that value ecosystems over profit. Ali and Joe believe deeply in reciprocity with nature; in operating in a way that reveals deep reverence for Mother Earth. Like gathering only what they need and have the capacity to process and no more, choosing mature specimens that have already sporulated abundantly, carring mesh foraging bags to aid in spore dispersal, and deferring to the wisdom and wishes of the indigenous. They create - and live - in phenomenal integrity. Always asking how they can deepen their expression of respect for the forest. How they can deepen their integrity in all they create.
