Frequently Asked Questions:
Is herbal medicine safe?
Yes – when you know what you’re doing. Herbs (plant/botanical medicines) may also be considered "drugs" (biochemically-altering substances) and have a profound affect on the human body. Comprised of thousands of medicinal constituents, herbs can affect multiple body systems in targeted ways while also working in synergy with the body for a holistic approach (allowing minimal to no side effects in the process).
What is the research supporting herbal medicine? Is it really effective?
There are literally thousands of years of recorded herbal practice with countless documentation of their effectiveness, clinical safety, and potency. Add that to the emerging clinical trials and modern scientific research on herbal medicine today and we have an incredible wealth of information to utilize in clinical practice. Effectiveness of herbal preparations is directly linked to appropriate dosing, frequency, and choice of herb. This is why it is to important to work in partnership with a qualified herbalist to be given appropriate dosing information and to have herbs custom selected or compounded for you in a very tailored way. Oftentimes, the reason you hear of herbs being ineffective is due to inappropriate dosing or using incorrect herbs for an illness.
What is the shelf life for the herbal elixirs, extracts, and tinctures?
Shelf life is usually up to 3 years for most high-quality herbal extracts; potency may decrease with time. We recommend using herbal elixirs, extracts, and tinctures within 1 year of opening. It may not take you that long to finish indulging in a healthy treat ;)
How long will my order take to ship?
Because of the care and love put into each package, orders will be shipped within 4-10 business days after purchase. I usually ship orders either on Mondays and/or Saturdays. Expedited shipping is available upon request, be sure to select the appropriate option at checkout.
5. What about international shipping? Do you do that?
Of course! Shipping options are detailed at checkout.
6. What sizes are the herbal extracts? Also can you tell me more about the gem essences with which they are made?
Some offerings are available in 1 oz. or 2 oz. sizes and such will be stated in the product description. If there are no price variations for a particular product, the standard size is 1 oz.
The gem essences are crystal elixirs made by either placing crystals directly in a solvent or placing the crystals around the solvent. The purpose of the gem essences is to enhance the already powerful healing properties of the concoction using the vibrational frequency of the crystals.
7. Can we return or exchange products?
Unfortunately we cannot accept returns or offer exchanges, unless you receive damaged goods, a product you did not order, or any extenuating circumstance of that nature.
8. Can I take both courses at once?
You can, but we highly recommend taking one course at a time. This will allow you to fully absorb and become engaged with the material of each course. Enrollment in the courses are offered on a continual basis, so there will be opportunities to take any of the courses being offered at any time.
