Attention all plant folks, aspiring herbalists, and nature lovers: We’re in need of help in the apothecary studio and are looking to hire an Herbal Production Assistant!


Pay: $10 - $12/hour depending on experience

This is a part-time position. Applicants must be committed to work 1 shift per week for about 3 or 4 hours. Ideally shifts will be on Thursdays. If Thursdays aren’t possible, we’re potentially open to other weekdays.

Job responsibilities include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Pressing tinctures using our custom-built tincture press

  • Filling tincture bottles and shrink wrapping

  • Packaging teas

  • Labeling products

  • Stamping boxes to feature our logo

  • Updating stock

  • Order fulfillment

  • Dropping orders off at the post office (post office is down the street)

We are seeking someone who:

  • Has an interest and/or a background in plants and herbal medicine

  • Is a sturdy applicant with an impeccable attention to detail

  • High in conscientiousness

  • Has a driver’s license and a vehicle to get to our studio in Unionville, PA

Not necessary skills, but a plus:

  • Photography skills

  • Social Media skills

  • Generally a creative soul!

Due to the small scale nature of our business, it is also a plus if the applicant is flexible in the case that we need an extra shift due to busy holidays or potentially skip a week due to down season.

There is an opportunity for this position to lead to higher level tasks including order placement, formulating/setting tinctures, blending teas, and medicine making in general. There is also the potential for this position to increase the amount of shifts/hours per week as our business grows.

This position could start as soon as we find the right person!

If it sounds like you might be a good fit, please send your resume to Lauren@areteherbs.com and tell us a bit about yourself!
