During an herbal consult Janice will assist you in awakening the deep memories of the wild herbs growing abundantly. When you once again develop a relationship with the plants, your body will begin to tell you what you need. You will be supported in your intuitive knowledge!
Herbal consults last at least one hour. First you will answer some health his/herstory questions, discuss immediate concerns, and then together we will create an individualized herbal plan to support your wellness.
