Imagine how it will feel when you have your own apothecary filled with herbs you know how to use.
Can you picture yourself finally making your own herbal extracts and yummy herbal concoctions to share with your friends and family?
Imagine how you feel once you've figured out which plants you and your family love the most...

once you're making delicious herbal preparations every day.
I'm here for the folks who know they're ready to bring herbs into your life, and I'm sure you've got a lot of questions!
"How do I know which herbs to start with?"
"Do I need an herbal certification to call myself am herbalist?"
"This seems overwhelming, and I don't have a plan to follow."
I know there can be a lot of questions and confusion when you are just starting out with herbs. If you don't have reliable sources for your herbal information, it can be easy to make some critical (and even dangerous) mistakes. Without guidance and the right resources, it can be difficult to make any progress at all.
That's why I created Personal Apothecary.
And how is it different than being another kind of herbalist?

You are ready to take this course if...
You are NOT ready to take this course if...
I started with herbs almost 30 years ago.
My friends and family started asking me a million herbal questions, right away, and that's how this all started.
And after decades of teaching about herbs in many different forums, now I'm bringing it online, and I'm having a blast!
When I started with herbs, there were only two herb schools in the country. How I would have loved something like Personal Apothecary 💚 (I had to move almost 2000 miles to learn about herbs!)
I created Personal Apothecary to give you a solid start in the world of herbs.
I'm excited for you to have your own apothecary!

A: Sure! All the materials and replays are there for you for at least a year.
🌿What is the time commitment per week?
A: You'll be receiving daily emails with a short lesson or tidbit. These should take about 15 min, depending on what we're exploring that day.
And, of course, this time will be extended if you choose to take action on any of the prompts or recipes in the lesson, which will vary from day to day.
Our live Q&As will be available on any device with an internet connection, and replays will be available for those who can't make it live.
