Coming this Spring – 2019!

Make Your Own Herbal Products

Did you know??

Many popular ‘natural and organic’ herbal products you find on the store shelves actually use toxic ingredients and fragrances! When you make your own you get the most natural and pure product available and no additional preservatives for shelf life! Herbal products are easy to make!  You don’t need to purchase expensive products when you can make your own, right in your kitchen!

Cancelation Policy for Product Making Classes:

  • For individual classes: cancelations made prior to 1 week before the start of class will be honored with a full refund. Unfortunately, for these product making classes, cancelations less than 1 week before the date of the class cannot be refunded as the planing and purchases for that class will have already been made based on enrollment. If you sign up less that one week prior to class there are no refunds available for cancelations.
  • If you’ve signed up for ALL classes: cancelations must be made 1 week prior to the FIRST class. If you need to cancel a class in the series you will forfeit the class fee. This is because I plan and purchase based on the number of enrollment.
  • Exceptions: If you are an on-call midwife or doula and cannot attend class due to a birth,  I will work with you to find a replacement class that you can attend at a later date.
