About the instructor


Angelina began her journey to natural health and wellness 20 years ago when she became a mother. Concerned about toxins and effects of common pharmaceuticals and processed foods, she began looking for alternative ways to support her daughter’s wellness. This was back in the dark ages of the late nineties, so the internet was not as easily accessible as it is today. She relied on the library and old family remedies to glean information.


Fast forward to 2004-2007, she became very interested in the natural childbirth movement and became a doula. Through her doula studies, she found that her instructor also ran an herbalism school called Heart of Herbs Herbal School. She began formally studying herbalism to go along with her independent research.


In 2013, she opened a store, Wild Earth Herbals (formerly known as Herb & Renewal) in Spartanburg, SC. In 2014, Wild Earth Herbals has moved to an online platform provide herbal wellness to a wider audience. “While I thoroughly enjoy making medicine for my clients, my true passion is education. I was frustrated (as were potential clients) that so many people were interested in taking my local classes, but due to our modern lifestyles, carving out time was next to impossible. I realized that if I could set up an online course (that so many people have asked for) in a classroom format so there was peer interaction, that I could reach so many more people. Another issue is expense. So many online courses are just out of people’s budgets. I wanted to make sure that everyone who wanted to take this course would be able.”~Angelina.

This FREE mini-course is an introduction to our full 20 week course on Hebalism and Holistic living. It contains all of the "Week 0" lessons and assignments that we provide in our full course and it should help you decide if the full course will be a good fit for your life.

NOTE: This class includes instant access. Once you enroll and create a password you have full access to the whole mini-course.

All of our courses are designed with the understanding that you have a busy life, full of commitments — family, jobs, pets, friends, plants, and science experiments with food. ;) (Or maybe it's just us crazy hippies with the science experiments all over the house.)

Our full course has weekly lessons and discussions based on herbalism, ways to live more naturally, and to be kind to the earth. You will learn the basics of working with herbs: methods of medicine preparation, history of herbalism, folklore, wildcrafting, beauty and skin care products, replacing chemicals in your home with natural homemade methods, how to eat a whole foods diet (both traditional foods and veganism), and more.

Philosophy on Teaching

In this course, it is not our place to evaluate your path. There are no tests in this mini-class, however there are several options for an open discussion with the instructors and other students.

On Judgement

There is absolutely no place for judgement or bullying in our school. If you feel that another student is treating you harshly or has contacted you outside of our discussion forums, please notify an instructor immediately!
