Take one step into Greenwich Village staple Aphrodisia Herb Shoppe and the exotic sights and smells will instantly transport you to an ancient market place in India, Morocco or China. Serving the 10014 community since 1969, this intimate apothecary offers everything from medicinal herbs, teas, vitamins and spices to essential oils, jewelry and unique accessories. These days the crowds flock for owner Joann Pelletiere’s tea blends – specially mixed and measured to relieve colds, strengthen the immune system or even cleanse your liver. Another fragrant fan favorite is the essential oil blends, and if you get lucky Joann will personally mix you a one-of-a-kind signature scent. Very soon Aphrodisia hopes to add a “tea spot” where herbivores can come and have their tea brewed and enjoy it at the store. CiNYC Host Shirley takes a whiff and talks shop in this aromatic adventure.
