Articles that were written in collaboration with a brand will be clearly indicated at the bottom of a post. I always aim to share an accurate review to provide you with the best possible information so you can decide if the experience/item/hotel is right for you.

**In Search Of frequently writes articles about how people use and interact with plants and fungi due to the author's interest in the field of ethnobotany. Elizabeth, the author, has her PhD in botany from the University of Wisconsin, Madison (USA) and did her dissertation on ethnobotany of rhododendrons in Yunnan, China. This by no means makes her an expert, and any information included about cultures and plants in this blog is purely her own research and should not be used elsewhere. Please note that herbals should not be harvested from nature unless you are with someone trained in plant identification for numerous reasons. Certain herbals can interact with medicines, so before using a tea or herbal, please consult with your doctor and pharmacist. In Search Of does not take responsibility for use of herbals or fungi, this blog is simply meant to share Elizabeth's interest in how people use and interact with plants around the world.**
