an excellent intro for learning and inspiration

by Suzanne Harris
The videos are quick and easy to understand and the downloadable PDFs make for easy reference. Several master recipes are given and suggested recipes to start. Then we can branch off and make our own recipes. The info is presented simply and beautifully.

Refreshing!!

by Florence Pantele
I loved this class! So much information, that is completely new to me. I have so many more options now. My boring water with mushy fruit has just transformed into refreshing, good for me drinks. The bonus class was very informative as well. Who knew you could take your weeds and turn them into super green powders. Thank you Chris for putting together another wonderful learning tool!!

I learned more than I could have imagined!

by Tammy Lentz
What an amazing course. Chris is such a great teacher. Everything is well explained and the take action items are easy to follow and not overly time consuming. If you are looking for new and fun ways to increase herbal usage in your everyday, or need to brush up on some things you already knew but may have forgotten about, I HIGHLY recommend Botanical Elixers E-Course. You won't regret it!!

Thanks, Chris, for all the wonderful information. I appreciate the pdf's so I can go back and study all the information and try the recipes. I started making green powder recently, but will now add more of the ingredients you suggested. I am looking forward to planning my garden for next year to include more of what you have suggested. I am also planning to plant more fruit trees and bushes to include next year. I really appreciate you participating in the Bundle this year, making it possible for people who can't afford the full price of your course to take advantage of your expertise. Hope you will be able to participate next year with a different course. Hoping you have a wonderful fall and winter. God bless you.

excellent course

by milica ivanovic
At the beginning of the course, I knew almost nothing about home-made beverages, elixirs, liqueurs, and even if they could be used for health benefits. I have a feeling that my family will be much healthier from this summer onwards. Thank you very much for this course and the dedicated time. I love it. Big hugs.

Wonderful

I really enjoy this class, it was very informative. Thank you!

Great for a beginner

by Sahara Moran
This would be great for a beginner, as it does have a lot of helpful information. I already knew a lot of the information in this course so I kind of had it playing in the background as there were a few things brought up that I found interesting. My lack of attention was not on fault of the course itself, but it did help me realize how much I've already learned. For someone new to this kind of stuff, I will definitely recommend Joybilee Academy.
