What Students Are Saying...

"This is one of the best classes I have ever taken! I am so much more confident now in my herbal medicine making skills, and it was such a joy to learn from Rosalee and Emily along with the community of learners they nurtured."
– Melissa Hunter
"Taking the herbal medicine course with Rosalee and Emily has expanded how I am able to help others. I have friends who I gifted recipes to who are asking for more cause they already ran out! They are spreading the word how potent this is and more are asking! So grateful to learn from such kind hearted beings and carry that with me as I continue my herbal journey."
– Angelique Sifrit
"I started the course with having the most basic and limited knowledge of herbs. By the end I feel confident in working with herbs both medicinally and nutritionally. I could never have gotten here this fast on my own. The common-sense instructions and explanations made the classes thorough and easy to follow along. The camaraderie between Rosalee and Emily made the learning very enjoyable."
– Sandra Bundy
"Learning to actually be successful in using what is on hand and making remedies that actually work has been a monumental shift in my life this year. I have been chipping at this as best as I can for several years, but this is the course that made it happen. Rosalee and Emily are remarkable teachers and I am so grateful for the effort and energy they put into this course and their students! This is the type of experience where an initial investment of money transforms into something else entirely: community, a sense of place, and healing. Thank you, Emily and Rosalee!"
– Kyle Putnam
"This course changed the way I interact with my surroundings. I see things differently and feel so much more gratitude for the growing things around me. I feel more humble in my knowledge, yet more interested in learning. I have skills to make medicine that can help my family and friends and that is an invaluable skill these days. I loved everything about this beautiful course!"

"Rooted Medicine helped me to get more in touch with the heart of herbalism through herbal recipes and connecting to my plant ally. As a clinical herbalist I have been more in my head and this course has opened up a whole new world for me. I am so grateful to Rosalee and Emily for sharing their love of plants and their wisdom."
– Nicole McDaniel-Richards
"Rooted Medicine Circle offers the opportunity to belong to a supportive herbal learning community. Rosalee and Emily's LIVE classes, presented in their light hearted yet knowledgeable and authentic manner empower one to learn in the most supportive environment! This teaching duo's books, course materials, monographs, & recipes along with full technical support from Karin Rose are more than one could imagine."
– Lynn Gray
"This course seriously changed my life. Not only have I had the most expansive journey getting to know the plants in my area and learning their unique gifts, I've also learned so much about herbal medicine making and it was FUN! This course is not JUST about herbs and medicine making, it's about listening to the plants, exploring your own beliefs, and evolving into a human deeply in touch with this planet. I cannot recommend this journey highly enough. Rosalee and Emily are open, honest and fun teachers offering every step of the way. The information and explorations are abundant, well curated and deeply meaningful. This is not just a course, it's a tool for self realization, wellbeing, and compassion."
– Kristin L. Amundson-Speer
"Rooted Medicine Circle is an invitation to delve deeply into plant connections and to nurture your relationship with the Earth. Through out the course, plant interactions and energetics are seamlessly blended with plant medicine and a myriad of experiential lessons. Rosalee and Emily are both extremely knowledgeable using humor and inclusiveness to guide all participants on their own plant journey. I plan to join again next year and highly recommend this course to everyone or anyone with a desire to connect to plants, the planet and their gifts."
– Susan Kaar
"Rooted Medicine Circle has changed my life. I have learned so much that strengthens my family's health and wellness and have also gained an appreciation of nature that I hadn't had before. This class is worth every dollar it costs and every moment you spend learning. Take it."
– LeeAnne Call
"This course was not simply about the study of plants and what they can do, but also about the human experience in relation to the earth and its bounty. It gave me food for thought, and slowed me down so that I could really bring meaning to the things I made – from teas to balms and powders. Thanks to the texts and questions in the modules, I really see how the end product is not simply a collection of raw ingredients, but instead a holistic experience – from the weather when planting seeds to the sound of the birds singing while harvesting, from one's state of mind while mixing – and all those other invisible contributors to a herbal gift that we offer to our loved ones and ourselves. It's all about paying attention!"
– Esme Terry
"This course gave me hope and mental stability during pandemic lockdowns. I learned how to create and maintain a peaceful space in isolation and how to use herbs for food and sanity. You don't need social distance in your garden and the skills learned translated into every area of my life. I am grateful and would recommend Rooted Medicine Circle to everyone."
– Odette Green
"Rooted Medicine Circle has been an incredible journey for me. To have access to the knowledge and wisdom of Rosalee and Emily, to watch them make the herbal medicines live and have the ability to ask questions and get answers is life changing. Anyone who wants to to learn more about how to use the plants around us should take this course."
– Deb Bergman
"Love this course. It has given me the confidence to treat my family naturally. This course walks you through step by step on how to connect with nature yourself and herbs. The practical hands on learning and how-tos are amazing, inspiring and informative. I can't recommend this course enough."
– Jennifer Judd
"Rooted Medicine Circle offers high quality medicine making. The information that is given is worth the amount of the class and then more. I love how much fun and relaxing the live medicine making classes were and the potent medicines that I was able to use after the classes. The instructors are top notch and go above and beyond in this class to make you feel welcomed and answer every question you have. I would not hesitate to sign up!"
– Belle
"The best herb course you will take. Interesting, instant community and support. The course made it possible to be involved as much as we wanted to be involved. The live medicine making sessions were very helpful. If we need to review it again it was possible and aided in things that we may have missed the first time that it aired. The course will give a foundation on doing any herb study, and will help you consider what you really want to do with the knowledge that you are learning. Plus having a live class room we were able to get to know Rosalee and Emily better and develop a relationship with our instructors. An enjoyable and fun study."
– Audie Mc.
"If you want to learn more about connecting with nature, medicinal plants and HOW to make medicine, this is the class to take! Great teachers, simple instruction, deep learning and the fun of make and take in your own home. I learned so much about myself, my environment and herbal medicine in this class!"
– Kendra Ayton
"The Rooted Medicine course broadened my knowledge of medicinal herbs and the way they could be used. After more than 40 years studying herbs, the curriculum still provided new and helpful information. This course is a must for anyone contemplating a career as a medical herbalist and is also an experience that is fulfilling for the layperson who only wants to expand their knowledge and use of herbs for their personal world!"
– Jill Allison
"Rooted Medicine Circle is a one-of-a-kind learning experience you will not regret. It's like having Rosalee and Emily at your side as you journey through making all kinds of medicines and getting to know the plants. They left no stone unturned, offering office hours, support, and ways for the community to connect. It was a very comprehensive experience that not only taught me about so many plants and how to make medicines with them but also connected me more to my own surroundings, community, and the natural world."
– Kim Liu
"This course exceeded my expectations! It meets people wherever they are and takes them to the next level(s) both in herbal medicine making and their relationship with not only plants but the natural world in general. The course provides so many tools to incorporate the content into your life and keys to unlock doors for future learning as well. The feeling of community throughout the course is really special, and the live medicine-making sessions make it feel like you are just sharing time with Rosalee and Emily, who are not only immensely knowledgeable but warm and gracious."
– Victoria Parker
"I really enjoyed the course! I've been studying herbs for over 30 years on an informal basis and I learned a great deal! Rosalee and Emily have teaching methods that make a person feel comfortable and like you can do this, too."
– Leslie F.
"Rooted Medicine Circle is a fantastic course that allowed me to dig deeper within myself and my community through the exploration of plants. The course was engaging, informative, and well organized. Rosalee and Emily made the medicine making fun and easygoing. They both communicated their knowledge of plants and medicine making with enthusiasm and love. I feel fortunate and grateful to have had the opportunity to take this course and look forward to future courses. Thank you Rosalee and Emily!"
– Bruni
"I enjoyed learning how to make all of the remedies in this module! These ten months have been a very transformative time for me. I am so glad I overcame my doubts and decided to jump into this course even though I had zero prior experience in making herbal medicine and barely even cracked open an herbal book before this. I’ve always been interested in it but didn’t feel I had the right access or proper avenue to explore herbs until I came across Rooted Medicine Circle. It really has given me a purpose I’ve long been looking for and I am so grateful to everyone who made this course possible."
– Rachel M.
"The main reason I absolutely love this course [is] that I am actually learning! It is not one of those fluffy, too simple, waste my time courses. And the reason why it is so fantastic is hands down to the video sessions with Rosalee and Emily. I find them so useful! I also absolutely love their casual, friendly approach. Their dedication to answering questions is staggering, and this is where I learn even more. The course content is fairly well organised too, and the whole presentation, especially the drawings are absolutely gorgeous, inspiring and calming! It's a pleasure to open up the course website as it fills me with excitement, calm and pure enjoyment.
