Student Testimonials

What aspiring herbalists and healers had to say after taking my course!

Abigail Jefferson- “I am a 61-year-old African American woman who has just recovered from stage 4 lymphoma cancer and major spine surgery. I was so happy to be able to delve deep into learning about herbs, their healing properties, and the many ways they can support me on my healing journey towards optimal health and wellness. I especially enjoyed the plant walks and hands-on activities of making syrups, salves, and tinctures. The details explained of the many actions of each herb were invaluable. I look forward to furthering herbal study….
Mary Blue is a knowledgeable, joy-filled, and engaging teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed the class.”

 “I’ve always been an amateur, aspiring family-herbalist (or possibly, one day community herbalist) and looked to books and online research to guide me. Mary’s course gave me a much more comprehensive and approachable understanding of herbalism, especially when it comes to understanding plants’ constituents and herbal actions. It’s a great foundation and gave me the confidence to continue on with my herbal education. Thank you!” 

Meredith Buban Lee-“I thought the class was absolutely fabulous! The material covered in the textbook, in-class, and via the online videos is extensive and thorough. The classes held at the farm are absolutely awesome as you get to spend time outdoors and in the garden being close to the herbs so you could really learn to identify them and also the opportunity to harvest herbs for use in making herbal remedies was a wonderful experience. Mary’s videos are a pleasure to watch and provide great reinforcement of the material covered in class. The opportunity to see Mary and Anna actually making herbal medicines and then the homework assignments that required us to make herbal medicines really motivated and inspired me as I had to go shopping for a lot of the tools, assemble my “apothecary kitchen”. So to speak and then actually make tinctures, oils, salves and syrup! I have sung the praises is this program to many friends and relatives and the members of my garden club and advised them to check out the website and the shop. Taking this class has fulfilled a long-time dream and I look forward to furthering my herbal education in the upcoming Level 2 class. Yay!”

 

Tami Killam- “Herbal Foundations Online opened my eyes to the wonderful world of herbs and how to use them in my daily life. I enjoyed the online course because I was able to fit the learning in my busy schedule when it was convenient for me. I would highly recommend this course to others who wish to learn about incorporating herbs into their own healing and journey. I look forward to using more herbs on my own healing journey. A big thank you to Mary Blue for teaching and sharing her love of herbs with me.”

 

Nancy- “This course has given me a much better base of knowledge to work on in my road to learning and working with herbs. Every time I re-listen to one of Mary’s training sessions or look up something in the Herbal Foundations book I feel as if another window has been opened in my knowledge of herbs. My path to knowing more of herbs and how they can enhance our lives has become clearer. This class was so very much worth the time and effort. Mary, from listening to you these weeks, it is clear you have worked hard for years to gain your knowledge. Thank you for taking the time on your journey to find a way to share this knowledge with those of us just beginning on the herbal road.”

 

Nicole V- “I’ve always been an amateur, aspiring family-herbalist (or possibly, one-day community herbalist) and looked to books and online research to guide me. Mary’s course gave me a much more comprehensive and approachable understanding of herbalism, especially when it comes to understanding plants’ constituents and herbal actions. It’s a great foundation and gave me the confidence to continue on with my herbal education. Thank you!”

 

Samantha H- “Before I started the course I was overwhelmed with all of the information floating around. Herbal Foundations was broken down in a pragmatic way and taught me how and what to look at rather than just where. Example: starting with herbal actions and what you’re trying to accomplish rather than starting with herbs. I also love the breakdown of herbal extractions and how to use herbs in the most beneficial way — which circles back to herbal actions! ❤️The course was broken down nicely. Weekly instruction was the right amount and was able to fit the coursework in with my busy schedule, work, and raising two kiddos.”

 

Jennifer- “I was highly satisfied with the content and quality of this course. The classes were educational, informative, and hands on.”

 

“I enjoyed learning about herbs in this online training because I could fit the learning in my busy schedule when it was convenient for me.”

 

“Both knowledgeable and personable, Mary Blue guides you through this great, user-friendly online course with a wealth of information about Western herbalism and wildcrafting, offering the perfect starting point for the beginning herbalist.”

 

“Thank you Mary for this course. I really learned a great deal and learned how very much more I need to know. I love the Herbal Foundations book and have used it frequently as a reference to gain more info to help a neighbor or answer a question on how to enhance their life with herbs. I suspect it will be my go to reference for years.”

 

Sunan Yund- “I loved this class. I learned a lot and it was fun and engaging.”

 

“I had absolutely no idea where to start. There is so much misleading information out there, especially on social media. I am so glad I took this course! I now have an understanding of the basics (and then some). Mary has paved a path of clarity and has armed me with the necessary foundational knowledge to delve confidently in my journey of herbalism.”

 

Katherine Amaral- “I am a 34 single mother of a 6 year old girl. Since I can remember, I have always wanted to have a deeper understanding of my natural surroundings. I have dabbled in gardening, volunteered on farms, gone on many plant walks, and continuously read and research which wild plants can be eaten and used medicinally. I always wished that understanding and learning about plants had been a bigger part of my life when I was younger instead of it just being something that I am trying to teach myself when I have the time. Now that I have my own child, I want her to grow up having a better understanding of her natural surroundings. I want her to know where her food comes from and know how to use plants for nutrition and medicine. I want to have more control over my own health and I want to teach my daughter this as well. This is my main interest in learning a deeper understanding of plants and how to use them. I want to feel confident in taking my health into my own hands and I want it to by my daughters normal to turn to plants and natural remedies when caring for her own health and also to know when to seek more professional help. This class has given me a clearer view on understanding plants and not only how they can be used to benefit our health but also why the work. Now that I have completed this course I feel more confident in researching plants to figure out which ones can and should be used for a certain situation and also what type of application they should be used in to be most effective. Thanks to this course, I will continue my research and education in learning about plants and also teach it to my daughter.”
