My herb course is online!!

Finally!! My herb course is available online and I am very excited about teaching this way! Actually, it has been ready for awhile on my end but there has been a problem with my host. I have been hearing the "we are working on it" mantra for weeks now and finally they have given me a "work around". Once they get their side fixed, the ordering process may change a bit. But for now, once payment is confirmed, you will be sent an email with a password to get to the download area. So....let me tell you about this course! You can find it here!

My Medicinal Herb Course is a simple, easy way to learn about making herbal remedies at home. This course covers ten common herbs: Calendula, Chamomile, Comfrey, Feverfew, Horehound, Lavender, Lemon Balm, Mullein, Plantain and Red Clover. You will learn how to grow them, how to harvest them, when to harvest them and what parts to harvest for medicinal purposes. You will learn their Latin names, their family names and their herbal fact you will learn the definitions of all of the most common herbal properties. You will see a color photo of each of these ten herbs to help you more easily identify them. You will then learn how these ten herbs can be used to make herbal remedies.

We will go over, in detail, how to make the following herbal remedies...a water infusion, a decoction, a hot oil infusion, a cold oil infusion, a syrup, a compress, a poultice, a salve and a tincture. I also included a copy of the sheet I use when I am learning about a new herb. There are over 50 pages of material in this course!

But here is the most exciting part! When you purchase this course, you will receive a special email address so that I can mentor you for 30 days after purchase! You can email me as much as you wish, as often as you wish, and ask as many questions as you wish about making herbal remedies (I will not be speaking to personal health issues) goal is for you to be comfortable and knowledgable about making herbal remedies that will safely and effectively treat you and your family. I will be there to "walk with you" as you begin this lifelong journey with herbs.

And another exciting thing....because we are into the Christmas season and all the busyness that it entails, I have decided that anyone who purchases this course at any time in December will have their 30 day email support extended to the end of January! Shop early and take advantage of this extended support time!

If you have not gathered and dried the herbs this course covers, I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs. It is vital that your herbs be organic if you are using them for medicinal purposes. Mountain Rose offers a high quality, organic product. It is where I shop for those herbs that I am not yet growing myself. You will find a link to the right under the heading "Where I Shop" following this link you will be helping to support our small family farm and the ministry we have in our community and online.

I have kept this course simple so that you are not overwhelmed. The instructions are easy to follow and very straight forward. The information on each herb is detailed and includes all necessary warnings and contra-indications. Of course, if you have questions, just email me. If I don't know the answer, I will tell you so and I will do my best to find it and get back to you as quickly as possible. This is the same course I have taught here on the farm for years and I have received a great amount of favorable feedback. I would also like your feedback - it helps me to clarify questions and continue to improve the course.

I have also tried to keep the introductory cost of this class reasonably priced at $25.00. I have not seen anything like it anywhere for less....and I have not seen the email support offered either, unless it involved hundreds of dollars.

My heart is to teach... I want my course to be affordable for all and to be presented in a way that makes it easy to obtain, easy to learn and easy to implement in your own life. I hope I have accomplished all of this. I hope you will let me know if I have and where I need to improve, if I have missed my goal. I believe that by walking with you for awhile you will gain the confidence to continue the journey alone.

So...Come!! Join me on the journey!!!!
NOTE: Just a quick note - several people have either commented or emailed me asking where to get the herbs used in my Medicinal Herb Course  if they don't have them….I recommend Mountain Rose Herbs…there is a link on the right under the heading of "Where I Shop" which will take you to their home page.  It is imperative for your herbs to be organic if you are using them for medicinal purposes - Mountain Rose offers an organic,  high quality product… is where I shop if I need something I am not growing! I will add this information to the original post, I apologize for not including it in the first place.


  1. Hi Cheri

    I don't already have the herbs you are covering in your you list resources of where to get them this time of year?

  2. Theresa,
    Good question! You will find a link to the right for Mountain Rose Herbs - they sell high quality, organic herbs. If I don't have something but need to purchase it - this is where I shop.
