FreQuently Asked Questions -- How much does this course cost?
This course is worth over $150, but for now we are offering at a low discounted price of $77.50; think of it as an investment in learning something new. When we do a "live version" it will cost $150 or more. So, take advantage of a classroom/module based class.

Do I need to have any experience with herbs?
No, a beginner may take this class. We hope you will enjoy learning with us.
Is this a live class? How does it work online? Who's the instructor?
It is not going to be "live" , but we do offer a classroom with modules in it. This still makes a great class. Instructor: Julie Larsen Certified Doula. I have taken a few herbal classes in the past; currently hoping to become a certified naturopath in near future. I took Grandma's Hands Herbal Course and half of Herbal Academy's herbal course. Also, learned some things from my midwife Katia LeMone. I do promise to add in a couple of extra videos during the course. I plan to buy some of my own herbs and make a couple of recipes. So, look for the extra video links in classroom and they will most likely be on YouTube. I don't have a way to do live videos at the moment. Perhaps for a future course (which will cost more if I do live). So, take advantage of the low cost of this course. Thanks so much!
What supplies do I need for this class?
You only need to really purchase one herb; have a glass jar on hand; olive oil or some type of oil for herbal infusion recipe. You can make other recipes; we have information in course. There is optional skills assignments that ask for other herbs; but you do not have to do them. We do not want you to have to spend a lot on the class to learn! Thanks so much!
