Good Earth Living >>>

Im very excited to take Laura Emily's apothecary class coming up this next year.  Its a year long class, and it is packed full of all kinds of valuable information about creating your own natural home care products.  After apprenticing for a few years with a good friend of mine, with her own amazing herbal business, I feel like Im a bit prepared for what is ahead.  Although, I know that in the field of herbs, there are limitless things to learn, and limitless possibilities of what you can create.  Im excited to dive in deeper and learn more for my own personal knowledge.  At the end of the course, I will get a certificate of training in Home Apothecary, which will be pretty cool.  But Im taking this mostly just for myself, and my family.  To focus more on my own health.  And to learn more about all the herbs I love.

When I worked for my friend, not only did I help her with the process of making her product, but I got to spend hours going through her apothecary, cleaning out the old herbs, and organizing the new ones.  It was one of the most delightful things to do.  Each herb had its own unique smell and aura.  I truly miss those days, and sometimes get sad that life has brought me to a place where I can no longer assist her.  So, Im excited to get my hands back in this place.  Although she had an entire room dedicated to her herbs, and I will most likely have a small closet, if that, it will still be joyful to work with them.  My Nanna is handing me down some of her old blue mason jars, and Im going to use them just for this.  

Beyond making products, there will also be emphasis in the class on Space Clearing, Holistic Nutrition and Detoxing.  All three of which I have interest in.  Im excited to see where this journey leads as far as my own personal walk with health and healing.  Im hoping a more in-tune, balanced me.

Hello December, where are you?  Speaking of... the whether is beginning to get tiny little tinges of coolness here and there in my parts, and it is making me very excited for fall, my favorite time of the year.  Mmmmmm... I cant wait!

  3. Oh, my heart. I have longed for this! Unfortunately, it looks like I won't be participating, which is terribly heartbreaking. Hopefully she will hold another class the year after.
