Herbal Remedies for Better Digestion

with Betzy Bancroft

Saturday, July 20, 2024

2:00 pm – 4:00 pm


Embark on a journey to cultivate well-being in our workshop, Herbal Remedies for Better Digestion. Herbal teas and liqueurs have a long history of being used to support digestive health, and are still important to many culinary traditions.  We will start in the Enfield Shaker Herb Garden searching for aromatic and bitter plants, nibbling them discussing how they work to improve digestive functions, and discovering that taste has a lot to do with their actions. Along the way we will harvest some of these herbs, then bring them to the kitchen where you will learn to make a digestive bitter tincture for you to take home.

Workshop Highlights:

Introduction to Medicinal Herbs:  Explore the rich history and benefits of medicinal herbs for digestive health. Learn about the specific herbs known for their digestion properties.

Hands-on Herbal Remedies:  Engage in a hands-on session crafting herbal remedies for digestive support. Create a tincture using a variety of digestive herbs.

Holistic Approach to Digestive Wellness:  Explore complimentary practices and dietary choices for comprehensive digestive health.

Museum Members – $50/person

Non-Members – $57/person

Class size limited to 20. Advance registration is required.
