I've never known what to do really to avoid contribution to negative impacts on the world, always just bumming around dabbling in this, or that. But consistently I believe in healthy lifestyles, alternative medicine and recycling/repurposing.
I just need some things to start with. I have these few (pictured) items and a few more up for sale on Etsy, but I sell things at prices that I think they are worth, since they are mostly practice pieces I was just wasting time on, I don't really consider hourly rates or desired pay; I am more concerned with people not feeling cheated, like they got something cool for or beneficial to the mind, body and/or spirit without a catch.
I made the double extract (further explained below) for myself in my own time, but thought, why not share the little extra I have at the cost of the little bit of vodka used and a small bottle or two for another batch; since I still have a few ounces of raw mushroom material left.
I'd like to start growing, and making double extract tinctures of medicinal mushroom and herb concoctions offered in small doses for more affordable prices than "competitors" and arrange them with a crafted gift, like a ring from my practice pieces, and then I will sell other crafts that I'm taking more seriously.
I don't want to be another palliative company like everything else on the shelf or from the FDA approval system; I want to offer potent, powerful medicine, antibiotics, and preventative action from cancer. No matter if it's on the shelves or behind the counter, everyone is trying to make money and keep you coming back; I want the medicine to work and I want crafting and repurposing human's neglected treasures to be a large part of my life/work, but I will always be making medicine.
The more money received, the further I can take it, as far as possibly having my own space instead of my parent's, distilling my own spirits for extraction, quality testing equipment, and new blades and bits to make crafting less time consuming. Until then I'm just hoping to get some start up mushroom spawn and substrate. I also need a few items for the lab and grow (jars/bags, bins, syringes, rubbing alcohol, gloves, cool mist machine(s), possibly a small heater, microscope(ideally), et cetera).
