Your Journey Into Herbal Wellness Begins Here!

 

Are you interested in making your own herbal remedies, but don't know where to start?

The art of herbalism can be overwhelming, especially in the beginning, but I truly believe that forming a relationship with one plant can open a world of possibility. And when you learn the basic techniques of processing plants into medicine, nothing can hold you back!

The At Home Apothecary is my blueprint for budding herbalists. This course draws from a rich tapestry of traditions and practices, including Southern Folk Medicine, Western Herbalism (which integrates Chinese Herbalism, European Herbalism, and modern studies on herbs), Physick Gardening, Cottage Gardens, Permaculture Ideals, and my own decade-long journey of herbal study and practice.

 

The brand exists to inspire others to create plant-based remedies that promote well-being and healing. My own apothecary, an extension of our home, is where we cultivate seeds, dry herbs, and craft medicine. I hope to demonstrate that creating such a space is achievable, even on a smaller scale. You don’t have to build a full-scale operation to make a significant impact; your at-home apothecary should be tailored to meet your personal needs first.

 

One of the most profound lessons I learned came before I officially embarked on my professional herbalist journey. When I signed up for 'herb school,' I visited a local apothecary shop to purchase my basic starter kit. The employee there, who later became a cherished and inspiring acquaintance, offered me wisdom that has stayed with me. She said, "No matter how this journey with your education goes" (I was also taking business classes at a local tech school and working on my permaculture certification), "you are already on your way and will never stop learning. In 50 years, you won't remember most of what you learned in school, but you'll hold onto what makes an impact along the way.”

 

A decade later, I know she was right and will continue to be. Even if I learn everything about the plants I work with (which I won’t), there’s an entire world of herbal knowledge out there, much of which I have yet to explore. That's the beauty of herbalism—you never stop learning. There’s always a new plant, a new remedy, or a new tradition to discover and understand.

I created this course with that mindset: what you learn here is just a drop in the ocean of herbal knowledge, but it’s the perfect place to start. You can take this course and, with no other official training, safely and effectively build and grow your very own at-home apothecary. This apothecary can serve and provide for your friends, family, and community for the rest of your life.
