While Tums and Pepto Bismol may be among the most popular bellyache remedies found in modern American medicine cabinets, civilizations dating back millennia found their own herbal fixes for indigestion and other stomach problems through careful study (and lots of trial and error, surely).
Remington’s resident plant experts at B. Willow are privy to this knowledge, and want you to be, too. Tonight the shop is hosting clinical herbalist and author Melanie St. Ours for a make-your-own digestive remedies workshop. She’ll walk through how to use common herbs and spices like peppermint, ginger and turmeric for digestive health and introduce you to some teas that’ll taste good, with or without dyspepsia.
You can also make your own herbal bitters to add to your kitchen, so long as you bring some alcohol for the extraction (vodka recommended). Admission is good for all of the samples, plus a blend of teas to take home.
6:30-8 p.m., B. Willow, 220 W. 27th St., (443)873-8414, event page, $25.
