Don't be caught without what you need.

While most first aid kits on the market come equipped with a few pharmaceutical remedies, there simply are no equivalents for many natural first-aid remedies.

They often work better and they are safer. Why take a pharmaceutical with side effects, when you can take an equally effect natural remedy?

Make sure your kit is stocked with what you need. Think how often you wished that you had the right healing remedy on hand. Something that could have helped heal a wound, alleviated an illness or even saved you from going into a clinic. You can have this right at your disposal. It is easier than you think!

Here’s what students have to say about the course:

★★★★★ "A fun course on first aid, covers a lot of information in a short amount of time. Elizabeth explains these herbs and remedies with clear, concise intention, making it easy to understand and learn quickly. Thank you Elizabeth." –  Penny C

★★★★★ "EXCELLENT course. This is a great course for those of us who don't always have time to prepare our own remedies, but also helpful for those who would prefer to make homemade remedies for medicinal purposes." – J. N. S.

★★★★★ "Excellent course and definitely worth it! Knowing that items in a kit have multiple uses is a plus." – James W

★★★★★ "I have been studying herbs for a while and still learned a surprising amount! Great Course!" – Jacqule K

★★★★★ "This is exactly what I was hoping for. Quick and to the point, using easy to find items to make first aide healthier and more readily available." – June C

Being prepared is essential!

In this course you will learn remedies essential to have on hand for several common situations including:

  • Nausea

Your instructor, Elizabeth Heck has 25 years of experience in working with plant medicines. She is by far, Udemy’s most qualified herbal instructor. Rest assured, you’re in good hands. With an extensive teaching background, she knows how to guide you through your herbal learning journey with ease. Even better, she is there for you throughout the course to answer any of your questions. That’s incredible value!

Why is this course not Accredited?

Nearly every online course (unless it is a large university) that claims to be accredited, actually is not. These are simply fake accreditations from real-looking websites used as a marketing scam in order to sell more courses. Elizabeth, as with any experienced herbalist, teaches with ethics and integrity and absolutely will not be deceitful for marketing sake. Rather, her students are sincerely respected and honored. Therefore none of her courses claim to be accredited.

More of what students have to say:

★★★★★ "Excellent information! There is so much incredible information in this course and I can't wait to get started making my own herbal remedies. Elizabeth does a great job of making your own remedies very simple and gives a lot of really good detail about the qualities of all the herbs and best ways to use them. A wealth of knowledge and I highly recommend the course!" – Cathleen A.B.

★★★★★ "Very informative and well delivered course. I am learning more than I ever thought I would." – Marissa V

★★★★★ "This is a really good course for any new person wanting to learn. Also a really good refresher course for those who are experienced with herbs. Fun recipes good quality totally recommend!" – Mindee G
