INDY'S JOURNEY WITH ORIGINS

WHY I LOVE REISHI MUSHROOM

Reishi was the first mushroom traditionally known for its revitalizing properties thatI ever learned to identify and harvest. Its ability to help our bodies while also creating a soothing treatment out of decomposing trees is truly phenomenal. I also like that its botanical name means "shiny skin".

“My skincare routine starts from the inside out. I drink a large glass of lemon water when I wake up and a mug of warm green tea before I start my skincare routine.”
