What other folks have said about
Everyday Plant Alchemy
Hi love x LOVING listening to you and am so inspired! I have many of those herbs in my garden - YES! So I can totally do the first part with herbs from the garden which is wonderful and I have just put seeds down for coriander and other herbs.
When I reached out to you, your course is exactly what I was looking for - even if I didn't know it at the time. so THANK YOU!

I wanted to learn how to properly dry my plants, and how to make the oils and creams. this class definitely delivered on that, everything was explained so that it was easy to follow. And some things got clarified for me, I was doing the drying stuff differently and it wasn't working very well for me. so this course helped lots.
There was also tons of helpful information on where to get the herbs and how to use them and for what. It was an amazing course and i cant wait for the next one!
Krystal - Everyday Plant Alchemy 2020 alumni
This was a fun and encouraging course. It wasn't overwhelming and made me realize how easy it is to make my own teas, oils and salves from ingredients out of my own garden. The fact that i get life time access to the course information is such an added bonus!
