The Wonderful World of Healing Herbs and Botanicals

From the medicine cabinet to your body, join us as we learn and try these overlooked gifts of nature.

Ward off that winter cold and rev up the libido as the herb experts from Bazaar Spices take us through the history and potential usage of medicinal herbs.

Owned and operated by married couple Ivan Fitzgerald and Monica Grover, Bazaar Spices is Washington DC's first locally-owned and operated gourmet spice shop. In this workshop, we'll cover the basics and then some - from using botanicals to boost your energy to herbs that will help you sleep during those long winter nights. There'll be history, stories, fun facts, and tips of the trade.

At the end, attendees will get to make and take home their own herbal blend.
