About Us

JulietHi, we’re Juliet & Archie and we’re delighted to welcome you to our website!

We have both had an interest in raw food nutrition and natural healthcare for many years now.  We have both had minor health challenges to deal with in our lives and, as often happens, these challenges have led us deeper into the world of natural healing and optimal nutrition.

A couple of years’ ago, a change of home found us living on the edge of the Knysna Forest, South Africa – and it wasn’t long before we discovered that we shared this home with some extraordinarily powerful and intelligent medicinal mushrooms.  The first ones we discovered were Ganoderma lucidum – more commonly known as Red Reishi – and Ganoderma applanatum, also known as Ancient Reishi.  As we started to explore further, we discovered Trametes versicolor or Turkey Tail.  We soon started making our own tinctures and teas from these treasures.

Shortly afterwards we introduced our Passion Flower tincture – very useful in these times of hormonal imbalance.

And then, more recently, we have started looking further afield – making 2 tinctures from herbs that, whilst, unfortunately, they don’t grow on our doorstep, are just too awesome to ignore – namely, Goji & Schizandra tincture and Nettle Root tincture.

A little more about our background – Archie is a certified bodyworker, specializing in Body Stress Release and Trigger Point Therapy, and Juliet is a certified Raw Food Nutritionist.  We have been studying nutrition and alternative health both on a personal and professional level for the past 20 years.

We have always had a very strong connection to wild medicinal mushrooms – both individually and together.  So it is both fascinating and fitting to us that we should find ourselves living where we do and in a position to make these and other superherbs around us available to others.

If you are struggling with long-term health issues, wish to super-boost your immunity, balance your hormones or simply connect more deeply with life on all levels, then this site is for you.  We will do our utmost to bring to you the most cutting edge information on these wonderful herbs – from the most trusted sources out there, as well as backing this up with our own experience – and in doing so we hope to bring the magic of these superherbs into your lives too.

To Your Extraordinary Health!
