Imagine opening the doors of your medicine cabinet and seeing jars of herbal treatments, remedies, and medicines all neatly stacked in front of you.

Each one carefully prepared by you and labeled in your familiar handwriting, just waiting to be used to heal, treat, and soothe a range of different conditions and complaints.

Powerful, potent, and effective homemade medicines—and without an over-the-counter pill in sight.

If you want 2024 to be the year you finally step into your role as an herbalist and embrace the power of herbal medicine, join us as we open the doors of Rooted Medicine Circle.

Hi, we’re Rosalee and Emily. We’ve been practicing, writing, and teaching herbalism for decades. We want to help as many people as possible find joy in the power of herbs and plants and be able to confidently treat a range of everyday conditions, injuries, and ailments—safely and effectively.

When you make your own herbal medicines, you gain an incredible sense of empowerment as you work directly with the plants to create potent herbal medicines uniquely suited to your preferences.

Do you dream of turning elderberries into a potent cold and flu remedy? Or stirring your own herbal heart medicine as it simmers on the stove? 

We believe there needs to be an herbalist in every home and want to see you become the go-to herbalist for you and your loved ones. 

But the path to becoming an herbalist isn’t always easy. 

In our decades of teaching, we’ve seen three major hurdles that stop people from creating and using their own powerful home apothecary. 

3 major hurdles that can stop you
from becoming an herbalist:

3 text bubbles. The first one says: Did you know elderberries can kill you? The second one says: No way! But they sell them at the local store... The third one says: No, they are totally toxic. I read it online

1. The internet is filled with fad treatments and bad information

In many ways, we are fortunate to live in a time when there’s a wealth of information freely available in various websites, forums, books, and resources.

However, this plethora of information also comes with two major costs. 

First, the amount of information out there is overwhelming. One blog says elderberries are safe. The next video says they aren’t safe! Who’s right? 

Second, the Internet has become flooded with a lot of flawed, inaccurate, outdated, and even dangerous advice. 

It can easily take hours, or even days, to sort through the countless and often contradictory blogs, videos, and social media posts. 🤯

And in the end, who knows if you can really trust information from people just because they’re popular online? 

If you’re tired of making mistakes, missteps, and weak medicines during your herbalism journey and want a reliable source of information that you have lifetime access to, then we're here for you! 

Instead of feeling frustrated and confused when making herbal medicines, imagine having two experienced herbal teachers right by your side to give you their best practices and answer your specific questions. 

We want you to feel confident and excited to make herbal medicines. That’s why we give clear, step-by-step training for a variety of learning styles (video and written) so that you can have fun making potent herbal medicines that actually work. 

We prioritize getting your questions answered, whether it’s during classes, via email, or in our community forum. Your days of feeling confused, overwhelmed, and stuck are over!

"Prior to the course my herbal journey was hit or miss. I would watch a podcast or read a book and focus on a few ideas and maybe a herb or two but had no sustainable way to collect, compile and use the knowledge. The course has given me a structure to work within to manage all the information and new ways to think about my surrounding community."
– Marti M.

Illustration of two people with speech bubbles. The first one says: Do you think 2024 is the year youll become an herbalist? The second one says: Yes! Either that or Ill just fizzle out after a couple of months like last year...

2. Is your herbal relationship on-again, off-again?

Have you dreamt of being an herbalist but can’t seem to make it a daily reality? 

We hear from people time and time again that they really want to be herbalists, and they want to reach for their homemade herbal medicines for their coughs, or pain, or what-have-you. But their attempts to learn about herbs end up being an ad hoc and scattershot approach. 

And because there can be major safety concerns when studying medicine making, herbalism, and foraging, people worry that their DIY approach is incomplete and missing critical information. 

If that sounds like you, please know this isn’t your fault! 

For millennia, learning about medicinal plants wasn’t something that you tried to do all by yourself, squeezed in-between the demands of grocery shopping, work, and taking the kids to school. 

Instead, herbalism is about community and mentorship. 

When you try to learn on your own, it’s common to feel like you have an inconsistent relationship with herbalism. One week you have the time to sort through a lot of information, come up with a shopping list of ingredients, and then finally an herbal remedy. But then weeks or even months can go by where you don’t make anything. 

With the support of others around you, herbalism can be an enjoyable process while you’re consistently learning and moving your skills forward. 

We want you to be able to joyfully commit to your herbal medicine making practice and feel intentional in your path of home herbalism. No more on-again, off-again! 

We love to see our students' success! That’s why we provide a structured (yet flexible) approach to making herbal medicines. 

We also know the challenges of a busy life. Our goal is to help you go deep into making the most important medicines, yet also pace it well so that it easily fits into your life. 

Our students tell us that after studying our comprehensive materials, they finally feel like “real” herbalists. We want that for you, too! 

"I would recommend this course to others because you have accountability and support. This is my third herbal class that I enrolled in since 2019 and this will be the first class that I complete and receive a certificate of completion, and I owe that to Rosalee and Emily's support and accountability."
– Jodi S.

3. Herbs aren't drugs!

Today, we see a lot of emphasis put on what herbs are “good for.”

Take turmeric for inflammation! Dandelion root for the liver! 

However, when we reduce plants to a simple equation of "take xyz herb for xyz problem," the heart and soul of herbal medicine is erased. 

Herbalism isn’t a case of simply swapping ibuprofen capsules for turmeric capsules and hoping they do the trick or swallowing huge doses of echinacea at the first sign of the weather turning cooler to avoid a cold.

And while there are some great herb companies out there, many of the supplements and herbal cure-alls on the market are produced on an industrial scale and filled with who-knows-what additives.


This goes against the very principles of herbal medicine. 

Herbalism isn't about throwing back dropperfuls of a tincture. It's about transforming your life by becoming deeply rooted in the natural world, its seasonal rhythms, and your place within it.

The real secret to making successful herbal remedies is connection.

It’s about reconnecting to the herbal knowledge of your ancestors and deepening your relationships with the plants and Earth around you. 

Herbs aren’t drugs! 

Studying herbalism isn’t simply about cramming lists of what herbs are good for. We don’t want to see you waste your time memorizing the uses of herbs without understanding the plants themselves. 

Helping you strengthen your connection to nature is at the root of all of our teachings because we know this is the most healing and transformative part of herbal medicine. 

"I have grown into a totally different relationship with plants, understanding, learning and within myself after Rooted Medicine Circle. I am no longer intimidated by all the learning that just seemed like memorizing and information about plants. I no longer feel like I will never really 'get it' beyond what I can memorize. I feel like I am inside the learning somehow, where it's vivid, full of visceral and sensorial communication. This class taught me how to work with plants, how to get to know their medicine. This is the absolute best herbalism course I have ever taken!"
– Kristinna

Introducing Rooted Medicine Circle

Rooted Medicine Circle is a 9-month journey that takes you into deeply understanding herbs by getting your hands dirty and making medicines!

Why is it important to learn about herbs by making the medicines yourself? 

Herbal medicine that is rooted in your connection to nature and made with your own hands has powerful benefits — for your personal healing, community well-being, and the health of our planet.

Imagine knowing exactly how to make effective herbal medicines right in your own kitchen! Few things feel as empowering!

There are also a lot of practical reasons to make your own herbal medicines. 

While there are great grassroots herbalists making products for sale, unfortunately a lot of big herbal companies use poor quality ingredients, and all too often these have even been adulterated with other herbs.

The only way to really ensure you have the best quality herbal remedies is to make your own!

The other big consideration is cost. Buying tinctures and even tea bags can add up fast. Meanwhile, making your own is so affordable that you can often make enough to give to family and friends.

Knowing how to make your own herbal remedies will be your new superpower.

In this online course, you’ll join a thriving community of like-minded and inclusive herbalists where you can get support and grow your network, take part in regular live medicine-making classes, question-and-answer sessions, and community get-togethers.

When you join Rooted Medicine Circle you get…

• An entire herbal encyclopedia with trusted information at your fingertips
so you can feel confident in making potent herbal medicines that actually work. (No more guessing if the information is correct or feeling overwhelmed by information overload.) 

• Community, mentorship, and consistency so that you can be purposeful and intentional in your path to becoming a home herbalist. 

• The encouragement and guidance you need to fully immerse yourself in an herbal lifestyle filled with connections that go beyond simply memorizing uses of herbs. 

PLUS, one of the most valuable aspects of this course is that we’re here to answer YOUR questions. 

Have you ever had a question about herbs that stopped you in your tracks? Maybe it was a question about herbal safety, or simply the best way to make a remedy. You opened your books, checked out blogs, watched videos … but couldn’t seem to find the exact answer you were looking for. 

Imagine how valuable it would be to get your specific questions answered by not just one, but two herbal teachers you trust!

Throughout the entire course, you can ask us your questions through live classes, Q&A sessions, emails, or in the community forum. No more stop and go as herbal questions pop up!

Our live medicine classes take place 1 to 2 times a month, and all are recorded. Additional meetups happen throughout each month.

In addition to the 9-month experience, you get lifetime access to the course materials, recordings, and community membership.

Rooted Medicine Circle is easy to access on all internet-connected devices, and once you enroll, you'll get immediate access to the course site.

They left no stone unturned, offering office hours, support, and ways for the community to connect.

"This course has given me the tools I need to make herbal medicines. I now have a better understanding of what I could make and how to decide what would be best in any particular situation. I feel more confident in my ability to make these medicines. Conversely, this course has opened up a whole world of medicine making that I had no idea was possible."
– Janie Burlingame

Can't I just learn this information for free online?

There’s an overwhelming amount of information freely available in various blogs, forums, books, and other resources.

But it will take hours, even days, to sort through all the misinformation and outdated information out there. 

Who wants to spend their time sorting through bad information? 

If you’re tired of making mistakes and missteps during your herbalism journey and want a reliable source of information that you have lifetime access to, then Rooted Medicine Circle is for you.

Our approach to herbal medicine making is based on 20 years of herbal experience as makers, teachers, and authors, and we’ve helped tens of thousands of students along the way. 

Our information is straightforward, practical, and nuanced. 

With Rooted Medicine Circle, you’ll be crafting exceptional herbal medicines right from Module 1 without making costly and frustrating mistakes. 

But this course isn’t just about learning the facts of medicine making. It’s also about deepening your relationship with plants and infusing your life with connection, wonder, and joy. 

Rooted Medicine Circle will help you prioritize and sink into the rhythms of the natural world around you, build some incredible knowledge, and forge relationships with like-minded herbalists all over the world.

"I think the most valuable aspect of the course for me was having the structure to focus my herbal journey around. Prior to the course my herbal journey was hit or miss. I would watch a podcast or read a book and focus on a few ideas and maybe a herb or two but had no sustainable way to collect, compile and use the knowledge. The course has given me a structure to work within to manage all the information and new ways to think about my surrounding community."
– Marti M.

Do I need to have cooking, foraging, or gardening experience to make potent herbal medicines?

Not at all! Making exceptional herbal medicines requires knowledge and skill, but this doesn’t mean that you have to be an expert in the kitchen, garden, or field. 

Our approach to herbal medicine is accessible and down-to-earth, no matter your confidence, skill, or experience.

Our success is seeing your success, and we are committed to answering your questions and giving you essential tips for making potent remedies without being overly complicated. 

We are known for creative and simple recipes that become family favorites, ones that you reach for frequently. 

And while this course accentuates getting to know the plants and other beings that live around you, foraging, wildcrafting, or gardening are not required.

We provide the guidance you need to help you find quality herbs without growing or harvesting them yourself. (If you do decide to harvest plants, we have ample materials to support you, including our free bonuses Grow! An Herbal Gardening Class and Wildcrafter’s Toolkit.)

St. John's wort
"Before I began Rooted Medicine Circle, I was very curious about plants and herbs and natural ways of healing, but ... I felt that it was this secret science that I didn’t have enough background in [and I wondered] do I belong, should I even take the step of learning? As soon as I joined Rooted Medicine Circle, I realized that both Rosalee and Emily are very gentle instructors that are inclusive. They never make you feel like you’re behind and they let you explore. They accommodate different learning styles. They build your confidence."

"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."
