Hi there medicine makers! Let’s manifest your Healing Kitchen together in one of my hands-on herbalism medicine making intensives. Just bring yourself, your apron and your curiosity. The herbs and the ingredients are waiting for you. These intensives are fully practical and you’ll learn from an experienced naturopath and educator, how to harness the power and life force in plants to make medicines that heal. I’ve taught herbal medicine manufacture for a decade, and written courses for various colleges.
