During this 4-day trip, you will explore traditional Tennessee whiskey distilleries, enjoy hands-on aromatic medicine workshops, tour medicinal gardens, try authentic Nashville hot chicken, and enjoy educational experiences surrounded by the beauty of autumn in the south. Each step of the way, you’ll enjoy one-on-one time with FSIHS founder Dr Jessie Hawkins, and hands-on assistance from FSIHS instructors throughout the trip. 


What's a trip to Nashville without exploring a distillery? We've devoted an entire day to the art of distillation of both essential oils and Tennessee whiskey. The day begins with a country breakfast, followed by aromatic medicine workshops and lessons on the latest aromatherapy science. After a casual lunch, you'll be whisked outside of town to explore the home of Tennessee whiskey. Tasting tours are available for those who wish to indulge. 


Nothing is as beautiful as Tennessee in the fall. Our botanical medicine experiences focus on taking in the stunning views by exploring medicinal gardens, lectures surrounded by nature preserves, and hands-on medicine-making workshops. Our outdoor experiences conclude with a delicious farm-to-table experience.
