Introduction to Nervines: Herbal Support for Stress and Anxiety w/ Kate Moxham
August 3, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$30
At The Alchemist’s Kitchen in Stockton Market
Feeling stressed or anxious? Learn which herbs help support the nervous system.
Nervines are a general term for herbs that have a calming and soothing effect on the nervous system. This category includes herbs that help lessen anxiety, insomnia, depression and pain. We live in a culture where life is extremely fast-paced, and it can be hard to slow down and take time for ourselves. In addition to everyday stressors, there are countless things happening in the world right now where it is easy to feel overwhelmed and helpless. Although nervines can’t solve all these issues, they can provide powerful medicine, and can help us slow down, take a deep breath, and work on healing our own hearts.
In this class we will talk about some of my favorite nervines, how to choose ones that are most fitting for you, and the best ways to incorporate them into your daily life. Each student will get to sample some herbal teas and tinctures and go home with handouts.

My mission is to reconnect people with plants for optimum health and balance through herbal consultations, custom blends, and classes/workshops because plants and people are made for each other.
I am the founder of Cultivating Roots LLC, a small-scale herb farm and apothecary based out of Bucks County, PA and Titusville, NJ. Most recently, I formed an Herbalists Without Borders chapter in Mercer County, NJ because I believe health and wellness is our birthright, and everyone deserves equal access.
I have a Bachelor of Sciences degree in biology, and have spent the last several years working and studying with different herbalists. I finished the two-year clinical herbalist training program at David Winston’s Center for Herbal Studies, where I am currently taking a Therapeutics program. In addition, I am working with Andrew Appello of Healthy Living Acupuncture in Princeton, NJ to become a registered herbalist of the American Herbalist Guild. I will always be a student, and will forever be in awe of the plants.
