Witches’ kitchen

Visit the market, learn about traditional uses of herbs and prepare your own medicine

The day begins with a visit to one of Oaxaca’s vibrant markets where you’ll find all of the herbs needed for the day.  Market stands are selling medicinal products that range from the absurd (aerosol sprays to make you rich) to the sublime (dried and fresh herbs for wounds and illnesses).  Our specialist will help you sort it all out.

We’ll return to learn how to make medicine and at the end of the day you’ll leave with your own supply.

A good complement for the Witches’ Kitchen is a temazcal – the indigenous steam bath.
