Great information, wish there was a download for the tea pages though.

The course was very informative and easy to understand. It would have been helpful to have the estimated shelf live for all of the recipes.

Great Course for Beginners

This was a great course...hands-on activities/recipes with practical learning. Easy to understand and for the most part, working with easily obtained materials.

Great course

by Agnieszka Bulwin
The course talks about all the remedies that are must-haves for anybody who wants to use natural remedies to treat little emergencies. And in the house with little kids emergencies are something to be expected. So it’s better to be prepared than sorry:)

Loved the course. I have many things that I make and take along with me but I cant wait to get started on making those you suggested to add to my First Aid Kits. Thanks for the great idea and recipes.

Excellent for Beginners

by Fran Gourdet
You'll have your herbal first aid kit in short time. The steps are complete and the instructions are thorough. A good base for moving forward in your herbal remedies journey.

Great title to grab attention. I had not thought of portable herbal first aid for the road!

by Gail Slade
The course is concise with enough information to provide new insight on herbs, instructions on preparations and use as well as necessary safety warnings. Starting with the simplest gives motivation to continue on to the more complex. For me it was a chance to focus on exactly what I needed for me and my husband if we got stranded on a road trip. We have a “go” bag but a conventional first aid kit which has the standard dressing material and equipment but no natural remedies. I am just adding these to replace what is there. Nice red emergency bag with conversion! Thank you for making this available in the bundle!

Great Course!

by Amber Wallace
I am familiar with essential oils being a massage therapist, but wanting to know more about the usage of plants has always been a goal. This course was great for me. I am so glad I took it. I wish all the screens were downloadable as written because they had great pictures and some info that wasn't on the pages I downloaded, or weren't downloadable at all. For printing purposes I loved the way the pages I downloaded were done.

Great Info

by Patti Later

What an amazing course. I truly appreciate how you put this course together. From giving a little history about the plants being used, to explaining recipes and how to use them all correctly. I'm so excited to start making these salves and teas, as I have the plants growing in my backyard. I look forward to taking your DIY Herbal Apothecary Course next. Thank you!! Cheers, Lesley

This was a very fun and efficient way to learn to make home remedies.

I appreciated getting the information needed without mountains of extraneous, unneeded, and distracting information to get to the real, valuable projects. The DIY Herbal First Aid Kit projects were all valuable, very helpful and very fun. Thank you!

The title is perfect

I enjoyed the mini course! I found it to be informative and I can't wait to try out some recipes! On a side note you have an error in a caution to pregnant women were it actually says to use it often even tho it stimulates the uterus. Thank You!
