It shouldn't have been so intimidating...

...put herbs in mason jar... fill to the rim with vodka... stir... seal.  

It's not rocket science for someone who knows her way around the kitchen.  

And yet it terrified me.

Maybe you wonder... 

Is it okay to pick dandelions from my yard? (What if a dog peed on them?)

And the big one: What if I poison myself?

Develop Basic Skills

This course covers the basic skills you need not only to be able to learn more about herbs, but to make every herbal product you'll ever need. (I'm not a fan of hyperbole, but in this case, it's true!)

Learn How to Learn

You'll be introduced to a few specific herbs and, more importantly, you'll learn how to learn about herbs. Plus you'll finish the course with a ton of herbal products you've made by yourself, for yourself.  


Hone Your Inner-Guidance

Part of the magic of this course is learning to tap into your own inner-guidance system! If you do the exercises with intention, you’ll discover that you know more than you think.  

This course is self-study so you can go at your own pace... 

and you can start the program any time you want!
