Crafting your Own Bitters– ZOOM class! Thursday, April 29th 11am-12:30pm. Bitters are great!

(Better Bitters! lol) Melanie Scofield will address the best herbs of choice to add to your personal bitters blend and how to create the best herbal blends in regards to your personal constitution, what plants work synergistically together, and what actions you want to get out of them. For example, do you have difficulty digesting fats or proteins? Do you have heartburn, or sluggish digestion? All of this will be addressed with time for Q and A at the end.
