When you've got your own apothecary filled with herbs you know how to use, a whole new amazing life can open up for you. A home apothecary brings day-to-day adventures in nurturing our bodies, connecting with the plants, and grounding into the rhythms of nature. Our apothecaries give us everything we need to practice the art of home herbalism.
Can you picture yourself making your own herbal extracts and yummy herbal concoctions to share with your friends and family?
Building our herbal skills and our herbal confidence go hand in hand.
Imagine how you feel once you've figured out which plants work best for you and your family... once you become comfortable with your own personal apothecary... once you're making delicious herbal preparations every day.
I'm here for the folks who know they're ready to bring herbs into their life.
This is gonna be fun!
I know you probably have a lot of questions and maybe even some confusion about starting out with herbs. I've been there. It can be pretty overwhelming. There's so much information out there. It can be hard to even know who to listen to. And if you don't have reliable sources for your herbal information, it can be really easy to make some critical (and even dangerous) mistakes. Actually, without guidance and the right resources, it can be difficult to make any progress at all.
That's why I created Personal Apothecary!
Join us for an exploration into the world of herbs while you create your own personal apothecary filled with plants you know how to use

Personal Apothecary is an email course, so you can access it from anywhere you have the internet.
When you purchase, you'll receive a download with all the details, and you can begin any time you like.
You'll receive an herbal email lesson every day. These are bite sized bits that all work together with the weekly themes. Each day's email will require about 10-15 minutes to read through the material, and more time, of course, if you want to take action on that day's recipes, journal prompts, or herbal deep dives.
Part of what we'll be doing, during our 28 days together, is cultivating your herbal habits, along with the herbal skills. The time that you spend each day on your lessons can translate into daily time you can spend with your apothecary for years to come.
The course is made to be fun and actionable, without weighing you down with unnecessary information or confusing sidetracks.
Just what you need to feel confident and empowered.
And I'll be available all along the way.
How do you know if Personal Apothecary is right for you?
You are ready to take this course if...
You are NOT ready to take this course if...
I started with herbs 30 years ago.
My friends and family started asking me a million herbal questions, right away, and that's how this all began.
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 three 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: This is not a one on one program. If you're looking for a one on one program, just send me an email.

🌿What are the payment options?
A: I am also trying out a "pay what you want" option that allows you to pay more or less than the regular price.
This is an open-hearted experiment in post-capitalism, and if it works out well, I would love to keep this as a permanent payment option for this course.
🌿What’s the difference between Personal Apothecary and your free course called Herbs for Beginners?
A: Personal Apothecary builds on what we learned in Herbs for Beginners... and delivers A WHOLE LOT MORE 🌿🌿🌿

🌿How is this different from a certification course?

Personal Apothecary is an introduction to home herbalism. This course helps you build your herbal confidence and get some hands-on experience with your own personal apothecary
