This looks amazing! I didn’t even know there were courses available like this! Thanks for the giveaway!
I don’t know where to begin. This whole course looks so amazing, and just what I need as we work toward our homesteading / self sufficientsy goals
Alaina Frederick says
I’ve always wanted to put our dandelion problem, er garden to use – learning about how different plants can help our bodies and how to properly prepare them and know if they are good or not is going to be great!
J&J Acres says
This is so awesome. I’ve always been interested in herbal medicine, but lacked a mentor. Taking this class would be so valuable!
A healthier life lived using the plants around me has become important. Looking forward to studying this course. Thank you for sharing.
This class would be great! Definitely need help with the stress and sleep and headaches!
Looking forward to gleaning more info on essential oil use and a refreshing of my knowledge
Jennifer Stanley says
This course would be a great start towards total body healing for myself and my family!
I have been thinking about taking this course! I would really like to expand my knowledge on growing and using herbs. 🙂
This is an amazing course. I would love to do this.
This course would be so beneficial! Thank you for this opportunity!
Vicki @ FiveSpotGreenLiving says
I absolutely would love everything in this course curriculum but I would be eager to learn about the headaches and migraines for myself.
I’ve really been wanting to learn more about herbs, oils, and other natural approaches to wellness, so this would be the perfect way to get started. As a fibromyalgia patient, the section on the nervous system looks the most fascinating. There’s so much we don’t know about fibro, but among the possibilities is that it’s a neurological problem. I want this soooo bad! 🙂
LOVE this giveaway!
Amie Sugat says
I could really use a course like this to turn my life around. I am planning on writing a series of posts for Untrained Housewife and then write a book on herbs and a course like this could really improve when I write. PLUS, I could use it to back my stuff (support with education certification) and pull myself out of being a live-in-nanny for several families, to possibly finally having a place of my own. And all that from helping others.
what an incredibly nice giveaway 🙂
Sue Dally says
What a world of knowledge-and passed over the internet!
YES! I love that because it’s online ANYONE can join in. Many giveaways we host are limited to the US only. 🙁
I have been experimenting with herbs and oils and would love a chance to be formally taught 🙂
Terri Rochenski says
I just started learning about herbalism, and I’m totally into the foraging aspect. Although the entire curriculum looks amazing, I’d say this would be my favorite!
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!
I am so excited about this course, I recently got into essential oils and have been wanting to expand my knowledge of natural and herbal treatment, I always treated my kids with tea’s and liquid garlic for ear infections but wished to delve further into natural remedies.
I have read and researched and friends and neighbors would suggest I get certified as natural path or nutritionist but I haven’t had time or money for going to a college course,this would be a perfect alternative to that and would work well with the certification in personal training..
Becky Neville says
Great idea! This course would be the perfect thing for me to combine two of my interests, gardening and health.
I have always had an interest in learning about all things herbal, and this just might be my opportunity! Thanks for the nudge in the right direction!
What a neat giveaway!!!!
Gisele Krippner says
What an amazing offer! It would be wonderful to learn how to use herbs for my family’s health issues.
Amy Carter says
I would love to take this course. I am always looking for new ways to help my family and friends find alternative ways to deal with their health issues. I’m pretty sure my favorite book would be the one about edible plants!
what a great giveaway!
WOW! This would be great!
I want to learn the kitchen remedies! This past winter I tried elderberry syrup daily for me and the kids for the first time, and truly feel that it kept us from being suck more often. I want to learn more things like that, along with the holistic approach in general, so I really have a plan to keep us healthy instead of just trying this and that! 🙂
I think the focus on stress and the nervous system will be really helpful and beneficial to me, that’s what excites me the most, followed by instruction on which weeds I can use!!
The course looks very good for a beginner in th herbal arts – that would be me! I like a holistic approach to life.
Janet Roberson says
What a great giveaway!
Theresa Krakauskas says
I’ve always been a big believer in the power of herbs when it comes to health. It makes sense to me to avoid taking pills for everything that ails you & turn to “God’s pharmacy.” for healing. The course description looks awesome & sounds like a great way to become educated in what I believe more & more people will become advocates of in the future.
Learning how to use herbs to aid recovery of illnesses would be wonderful, but I also am interested in making natural, healing body items to soothe the aches and pains of farm life. Have already started a couple of herb gardens and would love to know what to add to them to make them the most versatile.
This looks amazing!!!!!
Deborah Franzen says
Thank you so much for offering this! I have always been interested in learning more about herbs and how to use them since there is so much good they do for us. A lot of our so called “weeds” are so healing which is why they were brought overseas by our ancestors. I’d love to learn the basics and common discomforts but also the holistic approach. While I believe in western medicine I believe nature also knows best but I’m not sure where to start and this seems like a GREAT place …. !
Renee Fischer says
Ohh, I’d love to add this to my gifts I can offer other people. I haven’t studied herbology since high-school and it would be wonderful to brush up on this skill to better my service to others.
I have just started getting into herbs and EOs. This would be just awesome to win. Thank you for the opportunity.
Lisa Kennedy says
I look forward to learning how to know which herbs to use and how to prepare them for use. I know just a small bit about herbal medicine and really look forward to learning a lot more
Jeannette Olton says
I am most excited about making kitchen remedies!
The holistic approach for sure! Awesome give away!
I’ve been wandering around parks and my own backyard, wondering what medicinal uses the local weeds and herbs have. I’m also new to essential oils and would like yo study more in depth.
I am very interested in learning everything herbal, alongside my young daughter. Herbs in the kitchen and being able to take care of my family at home as much as possible is very important to me. Thanks for hosting this wonderful giveaway!
Would love to learn more about this, crossing my fingers!
I would like to learn how to use as a beginner. For my house, outside things, health reasons.
Wow looks like what I have been looking for ….
This course would be such an amazing gift to receive. It contains so much information that would help me with the use of my homegrown herbs in my lotions, potions and soaps.
I would love how to use the herbs I have been growing more efficiently. We use a lot of them in companion gardening but my knowledge of their uses is limited. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.
Anna W says
I’d like to learn more about foraging and wildcrafting! Thanks for the opportunity!
Crystal A. says
The whole course looks amazing and just what I need to get into herbology and foraging! I am most looking forward to the Kitchen Remedies section and using herbs as a whole. Thanks you for this giveaway!
Allison Almond says
The basic course will answer most of my questions – i’m looking to switch my medicine cabinet from yucky commercial chemicals to homemade tinctures / syrups and topical applications;
LoryAnn P says
I have been telling my husband I wanted to find an online herb course and this one looks perfect. I am especially interested in the Herbs for Kids part of unit 2. We have 4 small children and I am always looking for more natural remedies for their ailments.
This course looks very interesting. I have been interested in herbals for a long time but have been unsure of exactly how to start using them. Too many books seem to have general info, while others get too in depth too fast…this looks like it could have the details to be beneficial…
I love learning about herbs. I would love to learn more about what different herbs do. I think my favorite chapters would be the kitchen remedies and the body care ones.
Mama Fry says
I am new to this, so everything is what I look forward to learning.
