How the Online Classes Work

  • This e-course is a mixture of live weekly sessions and pre-recorded recipe demo videos.

  • The live weekly classes will be approx 1 – 1.5 hours long and during these we will focus on a common ailment and herbal treatments for it (with plenty of time for your questions).

  • Vivienne teaches what the conditions are, causes of them, and various home treatments to try to relieve them.

  • She shares her tips for helping children, with suitable herbal remedes and home nursing techniques for a range of ages (including babies).

  • These live online classes are taught using Zoom webinar software (this is usually very quick and easy to download and use).

  • The classes contain Vivienne talking and notes to accompany each topic.

  • There will be time for questions during every lesson. Questions can be typed in to the chat bar.

  • The course also includes practical videos and step-by-step photo lessons showing how to make the extracts and treatments referred to in these live classes. You can watch these at any time.

  • KEEP ACCESS TO THE CONTENT: There isn’t any rush to watch all the practical medicine-making videos because you keep access to them so you can look them up again as needed.

  • If you can attend the live weekly sessions then this will be great because this is your chance to ask questions on each weekly topic. However, if you can’t attend the live sessions then you can email in your question in advance of each lesson and Vivienne will do her best to answer it for you during the live class. Recordings of every live weekly class will also be available to watch afterwards.

In non-pandemic times, I teach this as a 1 day class in-person (not online). 

Here’s what past participants have said about the in-person class (est. 2015):

“I just want to thank you for Saturday. It was amazing, I loved it. So much information!”

“Thank you very much for delivering a great course last Saturday. I really enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to making some teas, cordials & oxymels at home to keep everyone well!”

“What a truly brilliant class! Thanks Vivienne – it’s made my day.”

“Thanks so much for the dosage instructions, the GP recommendations and above all your brilliant course!!! I really, really enjoyed it and learned so much! …And I got started today: My kids helped me to pick thyme for the cough syrup, then we put on an oxymel with our dried elderberries and last but not least my kids really enjoyed their bath with the “oat socks”. They had great fun and such soft skins afterwards. So, Vivienne, thanks again!”
