Host your very own herbal workshops!
Each private session is unique! As a host you will accommodate as many guests and you'd like! There needs to be a minimum of 8 participants. You pick a topic of your choice, create an event with your friends and family. I open ticket sales on the website. Each participant is responsible for their own ticket purchase. I come to your group and bring all quality materials as well as handouts! Classes usually last 2-3 hours. We have herbal lessons and hands on creation making! Each guest leaves with products theyve made and gifts. I have hosted several varieties of these classes. See the list for some options OR we create your personal experience based on your interests!
