Workshop: Herbal Underground

A Botanical Love Language

Certain plants have a long tradition of inspiring love or love-like feelings. Just think of our friend, the rose, and all the emotions that come along with it. In this workshop we’ll discuss some classic medicinal herbs known for their effect on the heart in all its forms – physical, spiritual, and emotional, as well as discuss some of the ways plants might even show love for one another.

While sipping heart-opening tea, together participants will make a bath salt and delicious syrup to take home (and keep the love alive).


Lacey grew up in the wild rose country of Alberta, Canada and is a graduate of ArborVitae’s three year herbalism program. She believes that connection to ourselves, each other and the earth is elemental to wellbeing. Her current favorite cup of tea is lemon balm and tulsi.

Born in rural north Idaho, where she spent her childhood building homes for resident fairies, Brooklyn-based Dana Perry now spends most of her days gallivanting around Prospect Park with her daughter (who loves to wave at “baby mugwort”). She holds a certificate from ArborVitae and an MA in sociology from The New School.
