NEW! ADVANCED HOME HERBALIST COURSEThe program I am offering is called Advanced Home Herbalist Course. This is going to be ready by April 1st.
It will be a 10 month program. You do not need to start in April, as it will be self-led, you may start at any time after April 1st 2022. The length, will be 10 months to complete the work. Each month you will either receive the digital version of the month's assignments, or the mail option, depending what you choose at sign up.
**You will receive a Certificate of completion after completing all the course work. This does not mean you are a legally certified Herbalist. There is no such thing. What it means is that you care deeply about herbs, traditions, and helping others. There are many ways to be an Herbalist and you will learn more about that in the program. 🌾🌿🌾🌿🌾🌿🌾🌿🌵🌿🌾
This is how it works. There are 2 payment options. 1- Pay all 10 months, and save $50, the total for the course is $550, discounted to $500, paid up front. OR 2- The course will be $55 per month as a payment plan. Before the 1st of the month you will receive an invoice to pay for the next month's lesson. Payment can be PayPal or Venmo
**PLEASE MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT THE MONTLY PAYMENT OPTION. YOU CAN ONLY PAY UP FOR THE WHOLE COURSE HERE.
There is then a DIGITAL OPTION and a MAIL OPTION. The Digital option is $55 a month and every month on the 1st- I will email the month's lessons. There will be questions and assignments that need to be completed, and you will email that homework to me, for grading and comments. THE MAIL OPTION is this.... The first month you join, you will receive a Lovely binder with the hardcopy lesson for the first month, a 2 oz bag of one of my signature tea blends (see Etsy for my teas) and some other goodies. Then every month, you will be mailed a new lesson, before the 1st of the month. You will still email the assignments to me with the MAIL option- but the benefit is you receive the hardcopies prepared by Sheep Hill Herbs. **NOTE IF YOU CHOOSE THE MAIL VERSION, and the MONTHLY PAYMENT PLAN, there is a $35 FEE at SIGN UP FOR THE HERB BINDER.

HI friends, I am Jenel- Artist & Herbalist, owner of Sheep Hill Herbs LLC. I am a certified Herbalist with the School of Natural Healing in Utah (a Dr. Christopher student), as well as a former student of Rosemary Gladstar's "The Science and Art of Herbology," and an on-going student of plants. I have 20 years of personal study, research and daily application as well as countless hours of time and experience using herbs for myself, my community and my family.
I consider myself a natural healer. I define natural- as relying on plant remedies and medicines from nature for health and well being. I believe that God, or Great Spirit gave us the herbs for our food and to handle illness, and stress in all body systems.
Genesis 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed: to you it shall be for food.
As an Artist I aim to help people get in touch with who they are creatively speaking, and as an Herbalist, to teach people how to listen to the messages their body is telling them, as well as to educate people on the many nutritional modalities available in their food choices, with the special addition of herbal medicines.
My own personal herb story began as a young girl helping my mother in one of her many gardens. She had a special way connection to nature and her gardens have been praised by many, over the years. I took further interest in plants while working in a greenhouse and on a farm. During college I worked at an herb shop, but it wasn't until a personal health crisis that herbs became my life.
After my body gave out on me in my early 20's, run down from poor dietary habits, poor sleep habits, many rounds of antibiotics, stress, and just a complete disconnect to the messages I had been receiving, I was called to the field of herbalism. My study began in earnest and I have step-by-step rebuilt my physical body, as well as tended to my personal garden through the much study, art, music, nature and the beauty of life. Herbs have given me back my health! They worked when nothing else would. Plants taught me and allowed my spirit to heal while they gradually improved my life organs. I trusted in plants because I knew they were created for a purpose. It wasn't enough for me to know plant names and chemical constituents and properties, I listened to what plants were saying and how they were calling to me. Like my mother, I have an innate ability with herbs and nature and I try to be sensitive to what herbs will be best for each person I help.
My approach is a loving approach. I have been taught in the Dr. Christopher method that includes many dietary extremes and fasting challenges. Although there are times to apply such measures, I am more of a gentle herbalist, interested in loving a person to health. I believe in loving others like I would want to be loved. Plants are a loving gift to us by a loving creator, and I like to approach healing in that way.
Courses: I offer a course called "Healing the Artist Within" It is found in my store here: STORE
This course does not pertain to herbs, but pertains to the creative person in all of us. I know that herbal and food remedies work best when a person is operating at their best creative potential. This course is meant to FREE the artist within, and unlock hidden potential.
Books: I have an eBook in my here: STORE
This book is EVERYTHING you need to know about making Herbal Teas. It is not a really long book, but is perfect for beginners who want to start with making teas, and simple medicines. I also have a book called Mommy and Me Art Journaling Activities for Love and Serenity. This book is available on my website (signed), but also on Amazon. This book is again an art related book, but so important for unlocking creative potential and inner joy.
All my new books will be updated on this My Self Published Books page.
