The Atlas Apothecary

Welcome to the Apothecary

"Potion Making" for Children


In this workshop, kids will learn the principles of traditional healthcare in a series of short activities. They will explore the apothecary learning about the use of each different tool, and how herbal medicine has been practiced in the past, and continues to be practiced now. 

We will then have a tea tasting session, and the children will be able to mix their own tea at the end of this to take home.

The next activity will be to make fragrant and healing oil by mixing essential oils and appreciating their balance and synergy.
