Baba Yaga Bitters Tonic

Woodspell Apothecary

Baba Yaga Bitters Tonic

$37.00

Bitter level: strong

A natural gut support tonic to alleviate many digestive struggles of modern life, Woodspell bitters harness the power of ancient wisdom (truly – the origins and effectiveness of bitters date back thousands of years to civilizations like ancient Egypt and the Ottoman Empire) to help to instantly relieve gas and bloating, curb sugar cravings, ease food sensitivities, support healthy skin, encourage enzyme production, and tone and protect the gut over time.

Baba Yaga channels the primordial powers of bitter roots and combines them with bold aromatic notes of rosemary, holy basil, and sage. This combination helps to clarify both mind and gut. Inspired by Baba Yaga, the old wood witch of Slavic folktales, these bitters channel all the wisdom and potency of the crone into a blend that is as tasty as it is effective.

4fl oz

Organic cane alcohol, spring water, organic vegetable glycerin, motherwort, sage, rosemary, holy basil, gentian root, burdock root

*All plants biodynamically grown to the cycles of the moon on Woodspell’s own land or obtained from organic, sustainable sources.

To stimulate digestion, take 1/4 teaspoon straight before meals or upon digestive upset. For recreational use, add to your favorite tea, sparkling water, cocktails or mocktails. Take up to three times a day. Do not take during pregnancy.

As an adult, herbalist and founder of Woodspell Apothecary, Val Alcorn started to see the enchantment in the elusive ghost pipe and lady orchid when she would stumble across them in the wild. She would feel the chilling magic at nightfall when an owl would hoots in darkness. The trees felt as if they were reaching out to her as bejeweled flowers bloomed at their feet. She began to see how the forest could provide a sustainable restorative agriculture approach by growing food in the forest such as nuts, berries, mushrooms, and perennial vegetables. This in turn would help the fight against climate change through carbon sequestering that the forest does naturally. She saw how this could be an opportunity to cultivate common and at-risk woodland medicinal plants to heal the earth and the body. 

Thus, Woodspell was born. Out of a love for this land and a desire to delve deeper into the gifts of the forest, Val began crafting herbal medicines that spoke to her as a way to share this magic with the world. The 12 acres her husband, dog, and two cats dwell on in northern Michigan sustain beautiful plant communities from pine and hardwood forest that is home to trillium, wintergreen, and violets to a wetland marsh that hosts gentians, boneset, and milkweeds. All the herbs + ingredients used in her blends are either grown biodynamically to the cycles of the moon within Woodspell or acquired from sustainable, organic sources.

Val's goal is to show the wondrous relationship in the forest between magic and productivity; healing and progression, and how we can tap into that to live a more sane and beautiful life.
