What people are saying about our Make Better Medicine courses:

"Thank you very much for creating this course and making it such an accessible price.  I have been following your work for some time now and have the recent and previous edition of your book.  I have always struggled with chemistry though I am passionate about making herbal preparations. I am a herbal educator, specializing in teaching folk to grow, harvest/forage and make their own medicinal preparations from scratch ... The learning never ends."    Tatiana Lustre Dawn - Alchemilla Herbals

"Thank you Lisa for a wonderfully informative course. I finally have a greater understanding of solubility and its impact on making really good medicine. I've made many tinctures over the years and I can't help but wish I had this understanding many moons ago! However, I am still grateful for all the plants and medicines I've worked with and this only deepens my understanding and appreciation for future medicine making. You really made the chemistry friendlier for me :) Much appreciated."   Rose Casey - Rosewoods Herbal

"Fantastic and fun as I knew it would be. Of course I will want to go deeper with your other offerings and now re-read your Herbal Constituents book. I have several books on aromatic chemistry, but you have truly brought to life some of these concepts in a very utilizable way. I look forward to pulling back the screen of mystery in the formulating world with you. A deeper understanding of extraction and solubility is critical here. Thank you so much!"   Elana BlueStone, Herbalist, Aromatherapist, Formulator
