Learn the healing power of plants, and how to cultivate plant allies. Many of the plants we need grow all around us. We cover what it means to wild-craft herbal medicine, and a 101 on creating decoctions, tinctures, salves, infusions, herbal honey, oxymels, and more.


Two-hour course to guide you in the world of herbalism as it relates to creating your own personal beauty inside and out. In this course we will cover:

  • Clean beauty basics 101: what ingredients to avoid and which skin-loving ingredients to work with

  • How to create your own personal line of clean beauty products and make-up for your skin type

At the end of the course, there will be an optional 30-minute Q&A. During this time Dr. Bissonnette-Murphy can address any questions and beauty concerns you have. You will also be provided with a digital PDF guide featuring the course material.

In this talk, we cover how to find your style sustainably, create and find clean make-up, honor our bodies, and how to use glamour magick. Glamour magick is radical self-care, finding our sensuality and connecting to our most bold, unapologetic, and confident selves to create the life we envision.

A little cookery right from the cauldron. Learning how to cook is one of the most important things we can do for good health and beauty. In this talk we discuss the historical role of the kitchen witch, what is intuitive eating, and how to bring herbal magick into the kitchen for nutritional healing and joy.

Do you want to harness your own healing abilities? Do you find that conventional Western medicine and pharmaceutical drugs leave something to be desired? In this talk, we will cover the wisdom in ancient plant medicine, meditations, and rituals for health.

Find inspiration in the Wheel of the Year, the elements, lunar magick & connecting with the earth. Learn sustainable practices to reduce waste and health hazards, how to create natural cleaning products, and spiritually cleanse the home.
