Your tutor Sue Rodgers is passionate about herbs that are part of her everyday life, whether it’s a cup of lemon verbena tea to relax, Sage tea to ease a sore throat or making a Horsetail Nail soak, there is hardly a day goes by that she doesn’t use herbs. After completing a foundation course in Natural Medicine with Neal’s Yard, Sue learned just how important herbs are to mankind and just how few people fully understand their true worth.
