Digestive issues? Metabolic disorders? Sugar or food addiction? In a world in which we are overfed yet undernourished, could the forgotten bitter flavor profile be the missing piece? Join us as we explore the rich history, cultural use, science, and preparations of bitter plants. We’ll discuss several different plants commonly described as bitter with the opportunity to smell, taste, and experience them firsthand. There will also be a demonstration as well as tips and tricks on formulating so you can make your own bitters at home!
Join us once a month to learn how to make time-tested herbal remedies! Each month, we will focus on a different preparation and demonstrate methods for making medicine in your own kitchen. We will examine different extraction methods, learn best applications for various remedies, and devote time to preparing herbal products. You will go home feeling more confident about your own medicine making skills and be equipped with recipes and resources to make herbal remedies at home for years to come.
Every third Monday of each month at 7 pm
Tuition: $20 per Medicine Making Monday workshop

Instructor Candace Box
Candace is a mother, LMT, herbalist, doula, and dancer. She grew up in deep Southern Appalachia and spent most of her childhood days in the mountains, climbing trees, fishing, swimming in the creek, picking wild blackberries, and helping tend the family garden. Over the past decade, she has studied and practiced many modalities of healing. She dabbled a bit here and there in plant medicine, but it wasn’t until she took the plunge and signed up for a course with Guido Mase that her love for this work truly revealed itself. She has continued her studies at the Florida School of Holistic Living, recently graduating from the Community Herbalist program, as well as various classes, workshops, and conferences. With a working knowledge of bodywork, movement, herbs, and other holistic applications, she looks to create a truly integrative approach to wellness. Her heart’s work is in women’s health, helping bridge the gap of the sacred feminine with the modern woman at all stages of her life. In her spare time she enjoys hanging out with her kids and animals, messing around in the dirt, dancing, studying yoga, reading, writing, random trips to the ocean, and witchin’ in the kitchen.
