We think this course is awesome! But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what our students said:
What an amazing course! Chris is such a great teacher. Everything is explained and the take action items are easy to follow and not overly time consuming. If you are looking for new and fun ways to increase your herbal usage in your every day or need to brush up on things you already knew but may have forgotten about, I HIGHLY recommend the Botanical Drinks course. You won’t regret it!! — Tammy Lentz
I loved this class! So much information that was completely new to me. I have so many more options now. My boring water with mushy fruit has just transformed into refreshing, good for me drinks. The bonus class was very informative as well. Who knew you could take your weeds and turn them into super green powders. Thank you, Chris, for putting together another wonderful learning tool. — Florence Pantele
I love it. As a pharmacist and herbalist-in-training I always wanted to create and invent new herbal drinks so that my patients could health themselves. Thanks to this course, I can do that. 😀 — Sandra Nwankwo
