You’re Probably Here Because…

  • You’re sick of relying on our broken western medical system, and you just want something better for your kids and your family
  • You’ve dabbled in herbal remedies, but aren’t quite sure if you’re doing it right, or if they’re safe for your kids
  • You just want to feel more independent and secure when it comes to your family’s health care, and maybe even save a couple bucks while you do it

The Coolest Thing Is...

Herbalism Is The Most Sustainable Way To Keep Your Family Healthy

It’s Better For You
It’s Better For The Planet
& It’s Better For Your Wallet

And when you start learning how to heal your family with plants you grow, and remedies you make, you’ll start to feel like the most empowered superhero mom around!

Just imagine the feeling you’ll have the first time you reach for a remedy for your kids, and it actually works! If you’re like so many of the moms I’ve helped you’ll start to have a sense of inner knowing and peace that you’ve never felt before!

Hi, I'm Margie, I've been studying herbs for a long time. I've completed my beginner and Intermediate classes at the Herbal academy and I have my diploma in herbal astrology,  still feel I have so much more to learn. Mel is so upbeat and everything she teaches is not over your head. I'm excited to be here.

Mel is like a shiny radiant herbal fairy, and all I want to do is focus and absorb, and be a part of the hum- her energy is so big and amazing! It's so obvious her whole heart and soul is in it, and that she cares so deeply about sharing - a wise sage, that isn't boring! It's fun to listen to her and hear what's coming next. I appreciate how she lightens the tone and keeps it relaxed, fun, and full of info. And really a seeker - I can't stop eating information lol. I'm a how does it tick type, so knowing about Immunity is blowing my mind I love it seriously, this is amazing - look the afternoon off so I could dive In!! Yay!! So grateful for Mel, really.

I made a healing skin salve with calendula and plantain for my mom to use while going through radiation for breast cancer. She has used it every day multiple times a day and has NO break down of the skin. She has 3 treatment left. It makes me so excited to know that I was able to create something out of plants to help her through this journey and she doesn't have to use the steroid creams that they prescribe.
