Where did your mushroom journey begin?
I started taking various herbal and mushroom blends a few years ago to help support my system and manage an auto-immune respiratory condition. Fast forwards 2 years, I launched AKUA to help deliver beneficial herbs and fungi in a delicious on-the-go format.
What is your mushroom spirit animal and why?
Reshi mushroom for sure! In Japanese Reishi means "Supernatural Mushroom" and I think that perfectly describes how beneficial and magical this fungi is.
