Aphrodite's Digestive Bitters


  • Details
    Digestive Bitters with Mugwort, Fennel, Lavender, and Rosemary

    Feeling stuffed from a big Holiday meal? Lost your appetite? Feeling bloated?
    Bitters to the rescue!

    Digestive bitters have a long history of aiding our body's breakdown of food. Just by stimulating the Bitter taste buds in your mouth, a cascade of digestive effects is triggered, starting with increased salivation. Bitters can trigger the production of acid in the stomach, increase a sluggish appetite, encourage motility (food moving from the stomach to the intestines), increase bile production in the liver and gall bladder, and more. All by simply TASTING the bitter! Remarkable!

    Here we pair the powerfully bitter wildcrafted fresh Mugwort spagyric with carminative fresh Fennel spagyric, also wildcrafted. This helps prevent gas and bloating and ease intestinal discomfort. Plus it adds a sweetness that helps the bitter taste better.

    Round that out with a touch of each Rosemary and Lavender spagyrics, to add digestive fire and cooling breath, respectively.

    Astrologically, Mugwort and Fennel are both plants ruled by the sensual planet Venus, hence the name! So don't be surprised if you notice the signs of a Venusian influence on your life after frequent use ;)

    These are powerful medicines so a few drops can be sufficient to feel the effects. A little goes a long way, though liberal use is safe and encouraged as well!

    Ingredients: 80 proof vodka, 90 proof brandy, 151 proof rum, fresh wildcrafted Mugwort leaves, fresh wildcrafted Fennel leaves, wildcrafted Rosemary leaves, Lavender buds

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Custom and personalized orders

    Have a particular skincare concern that you don't see addressed in any of the products listed? See something you'd love if it weren't for that one ingredient that you hate/are allergic to/makes you break out? No problem! I can replace most ingredients with something different with little or no change in price in most cases. I can also give you a personal consultation if you'd like! Just shoot me a message.

    Gift wrapping and packaging

    I can gift wrap anything you'd like! Just please add the Gift Wrapped listing to your cart and note whether you'd like a box or bag.

    Wholesale availability

    As I am only one being I am unable to accommodate wholesale orders at the moment. If you're interested in stocking these in your shop, please message me and we might be able to work something out.

    Returns and Exhanges

    Because these are all natural personal care items, I cannot accept returns for refund after 15 days. I will however accept returns for store credit or exchanges up to 30 days (both deadlines are for contacting me, shipping allows for about 10 days more). If you are unhappy with anything, please contact me and I will try to remedy the situation any way I can. That said, I'm a very small business so I will not be able to come through like Sephora (yet!) so bear with me

    Why are there still chemicals in my "natural" product?

    Chemicals are not inherently bad. We are made of chemicals! What you see on the ingredients list is called the INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients) and is the name of the chemical compound. I strive to use compounds derived from all natural plant sources as much as I can without sacrificing efficacy. In the description of each product, I describe what each ingredient does and why it is there. I encourage you to do your own research as well and be an informed consumer! If you have further questions about ingredients or formulations or suggestions for different ones (always seeking to improve!), don't hesitate to shoot me a message!
