About Toadstool Botanicals
Welcome! Toadstool Botanicals is here to bring you closer to plants & fungi through ethically foraged and cultivated goods. This business is owned and solely run by Rachel – an herbalist, farmer, and forager living in the mid-Atlantic region of the US. I pride myself on growing or foraging every single plant that goes into each product, and highlighting the immense power of plants local to the Washington DC, mid-Atlantic, and East Coast regions. Toadstool Botanicals focuses on seasonal offerings, and working with the plants around us. I especially value foraging invasive species and practicing reciprocity with the ecosystems and plant communities I harvest from through environmental stewardship and education. Feel free to drop me a message any time if you have questions about foraging in metropolitan areas, how I source different items, or anything else that comes to mind!View Store

My aronia bushes ripened especially early this year thanks to the intense DC area heat, so you can get these berries earlier than the usual late summer harveset
The aronia berry is a small and deep purple berry that has become one of the most potent antioxidant sources in the natural world. It is also rich in anthocyanins, caffeic acid and tannins. A single serving can contain up to 40 times more antioxidants than blueberries and contains essential nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E and minerals such as Manganese and Potassium which are important for energy metabolism.
