cut through the confusion and overwhelm of learning about plants

and uncover a More Holistic understanding of your favorite aromatic botanicals

So, you’re interested in learning more about an aromatic plant…

Where do you go?

You can search online and find some info, but can you really trust what you find online?

You go to few books that cover essential oils… 

Then a book that covers more of a plant’s herbal properties…

Maybe another book that talks about its botany, or chemistry…

But aren’t you tired of trying to piece all of that together in pursuit of a cohesive understanding of a plant?

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a trusted online resource of materia medica where you can find all the information about your favorite aromatic plants - in one spot? 

...A personal on-demand library of epic plant talks & monographs, recipes, folklore, and more!

Are you ready for the only membership of its kind...?

The Aromatic Medicine Garden Membership is for you if:

You’re done with sifting through loads of resources and going down online rabbit holes for hours with little to show for itwe've distilled all of the important and useful info about plants for you and present it in a clear and comprehensible way.
You’re an aromatherapist or essential oil enthusiast who wants to learn more about using essential oils and other extracts as well as the whole plant, including resins, gums, bark, leaves, and flowers - to make incense, salves, oils, teas, tinctures, and other herbal formulas to support your health.
You’re an herbalist or are passionate about using plants for wellness, but you’re tired of learning about the same plants all the time. While we will cover many familiar herbs, like peppermint and rose, we also go far beyond the herbs discussed in traditional Western medicine to explore the aromatic plants of the world, like vetiver, patchouli, jasmine, elemi, myrrh and others that are often overlooked in herbalism.
You’re an incense or perfume connoisseur who wants to learn more about the plants used in your homemade blends and formulas. For example, you may already know that you love the smell of copal. But did you know that you can also use it to make a homemade salve to soothe rashes, itches, and burns? Learn how to use each herb in your incense-making kit to its fullest potential!
You feel a calling to work with plants, but you’re not quite sure where to start or who to trust.
You’re an herbal product maker who wants to add natural scents to your formulas with the use of beneficial, aromatic botanicals.
