Welcome! Whether you're just beginning your adult life, are a mom, dad, or grandparent who recognizes that natural healing can be learned and wants to leave a legacy of health and wellness to your kids and grandchildren; or you're a person who believes in being prepared for emergency events, including having medicine on hand that you can create from plants around you...

the Confident Herbalist Tribe is the BEST place to learn!


Here, in The Confident Herbal Tribe community, you become a true home herbalist, empowered in your safe, effective herbal and aromatic (essential oil) skills.

This is because you have a qualified and certified herbalist/aromatherapist (me) on hand to answer questions; foundational herbal masterclasses if you're a brand new beginner; a deeply researched course every month on a specific, valuable herb and/or essential oil; plus an active and extremely helpful student community filled with other herbalists of all levels to guide you on your herbal path!

And guess what?

As a member, you'll also have access to the Live weekly Question and Answer chats and the replays. Just this alone is worth the cost, as you have access to me directly. It's almost like a consultation!


I'm so glad you're here, and right now, you have an opportunity to learn home herbalism with a monthly herb and/or essential oil deeply at a time, in a community setting that's fun, supportive, and also includes LIVE weekly lessons in addition to the monthly* content! Members have access to ALL the content at all times, too.

Right now, there are SO many masterclasses, I've organized them in three different ways so you can choose the best place to start for YOUR needs. You can find courses based on specific body systems and needs; by the seasons, if you're interested in foraging or want to learn about herbs to use best in each season; and also alphabetically.

New courses are added often, on average once per month.


🌻Are you growing medicinal and culinary herbs....but have no idea how to use them for your health and home-grown medicine?

🌹Are you looking for a more natural, holistic way of improving with your health and wellness...and your family's?

🌿Do you want to be able to use natural remedies to heal many of your common (and perhaps uncommon) ailments like headaches, cold & flu, aches & pains, cuts & wounds....and lots more?

🌺 Do you feel overwhelmed with ALL the information out there and don't know where to even start finding out more about using herbs safely, effectively, and practically?

🌼Want to feel confident in your ability to create proven, safe and effective herbal remedies for yourself and your family?

🌿Do you want to learn with an actual teacher who is THERE for you? I hold a weekly Live Question and Answer session via zoom for students. It's recorded, and the replays are available in the completely private (off social media) student group so you can watch them any time.

We've got you on this! The Confident Herbal Tribe community is for you:

If you are wanting to learn about herbs but don't have time or the funds for a long course or prefer to learn about and experience one herb at a time, really well, in depth, so you feel confident using that herb in your home and life, you are in the right place!

You'll also have access periodically to my longer courses and/or eBooks, as I create them....for the same monthly cost! For example, The Herbal Medicine Making Basics course ($77) is included in the Confident Herbalist Tribe membership, as well as tons of others!

**As of right no, the 50+ courses in the The Confident Herbalist Tribe membership total $2,000 if you were to purchase them separately. With the value of the student group and personal attention from me, the total value of the Tribe is worth well over $3,000 and will continue to increase in value as more courses and live replays of the Q and A chats are added.

For just $37 a month, you just can't beat the value you get! It's an affordable, fun, practical, and useful way to learn herbalism. If you don't care for subscriptions, there's also a lifetime option available, too!


Back when I started my herbal journey and even continuing into the middle of it, I felt so overwhelmed with all the information out there, as well as the lack of real support.

Do you feel like I did?

How would I know which herb to use and how to prepare it?

And worst of all: Could I actually poison myself or my family by using valerian instead of that toxic Tylenol PM?

Gosh....and how on earth do you learn about ALL the herbs?

Learning to use herbs artfully, safely, and effectively is a process and a journey that is SO exciting! And there are MANY ways to learn: total immersion in a long, drawn out course; mini-courses; reading books; and even attending college classes.

But ultimately.....

What learning herbs really is ALL about is experiencing the herbs: making the preparations, feeling the healthful effects, sharing your knowledge with others, asking questions, finding a mentor for feedback, and more.....

Ultimately it's about the DOING, MAKING, EXPERIENCING of the plants and preparations.

The Confident Herbal Tribe is a supportive membership community where you'll learn how to use herbs and essential oils with skill, safety, confidence, and effectiveness.

  • herbs for general health and common ailments
  • herbs for mental clarity
  • detoxification and working with herbs
  • all kinds of herbal preparations, including those that require more skill than just the basics
  • nutritive herbs
  • formulating your own preparations
  • building your apothecary and first aid kit
  • herbs for different body systems
  • herbs that will support a variety of health concerns
  • clinical herbal topics
  • general herbal knowledge to increase your skills
  • how to use herbs in other preparations such as beauty and body care, oral health, hair care, and more
  • support from me and other students in a small, interactive group
  • no fluff, no New Age "woo:" Just science- and evidence-based information and the strong anecdotal evidence of good traditional folk herbalism based on centuries of home remedies
  • and LOTS more

You'll become empowered and confident in your herbal projects, endeavors, and abilities as you learn and DO organic work with the plants.

You'll make preparations, learn all kinds of herbal topics, including all about the scientific medicinal qualities and actions of plant featured each month...and actually DO the herbal projects each month right along with me in the video lessons (which never expire).

You'll get to share and ask questions in the supportive student group, where I hang out all the time. Also, you'll have access to additional live Q&A sessions each week too that are focused on YOUR needs as a student.

Becoming a member of The Confident Herbal Tribe means that you will get just the right amount of education and hands-on recipes each at the right pace to be active in your herbal studies but not so overwhelmed you just give up.

The Confident Herbal Tribe supports visual learners, hands-on learners, and people who need and enjoy connection with others in more of a "classroom" environment (the Facebook group and the live sessions I provide for you).

With the Confident Herbal Tribe, you'll be able to confidently and safely use herbs for your family's health. You'll be able to ask questions in the group or directly from me. Even if you know nothing about using herbs right'll learn quickly in the group!

I'm active daily in the special private student group, and you'll have lots of chances to find answers to your questions every day and also during the additional lessons I provide you in the Live Q&A's each week!

I give you the perfect amount of science and evidence-based information each month with no New Age "woo" or fluff, and you'll have opportunities to practice hands-on preparations and recipes. I will also help you to go further in your studies if and when you happen to want even more.

If you have just an hour or so a week, you'll be able to keep up each month...and if you don't, it's ok!

You can't fall behind because you'll be able to go back and access the lessons any time you want, on your own time schedule.

AND, you have access to the lessons forever, as long as you are a member in good standing.

This is a great time to enroll as a founding member, because the price will never be this low again.... And, if you're not happy, you can cancel your subscription at any time.

So get started learning herbalism in small, easy, do-able monthly amounts now! Join our friendly and supportive Confident Herbal Tribe!

Maybe you're wondering what makes me qualified to teach you how to use herbs safely and effectively?

Well, I've been actively studying herbalism from beginning through clinically advanced coursework for around 15+ years, including a great deal of anatomy and physiology and phytochemistry. I'm not only an herbalist, I'm also a certified professional level aromatherapist. Most importantly, I've been able to heal my own body of a great variety of health problems and ills and help others do the same. I came to some of these health problems through decades of using medications prescribed by physicians who honestly and simply made some terrible mistakes. In addition, I was addicted to several over the counter medications that I assumed were "safe" since they were being sold in a market.

Not only have I healed my own body and improved my anxiety and stress levels, but I've helped others do the same. I've taught hundreds of students to create their own plant remedies, both in person and online, and I love helping and being there for my students. My mission is to help every family have a home herbalist to turn to. To help others re-learn their God-given right to know how to access the knowledge of plant have access to our ancient knowledge of how to use plants for our health.

It's my mission to help you leave a legacy for your children and your grand-children. The time to start learning is right now! You'll never get this time to learn back, and best of can learn to use herbs well in the margins of your life. You only need about an hour, maybe two, a week. Many people learn in less time than that.

So start now!

*Disclaimer: New masterclasses and courses are presented in the Tribe on an "average" monthly basis. Eventually, the Tribe content will become so massive that it will no longer make sense to add more content. However, your monthly charge includes ALL content from the past three years AND new content on an ongoing basis until no more content is added. I reserve the right to change the output of content at any time.

"For a long time I've watched loved ones develop ailment after ailment, only to be given yet another drug with side affects that cause yet another ailment, until they eventually passed away. I don't believe the word "cure"is in the medical/pharma dictionary. I set out to find natural preventions (because its easier to prevent getting something than it is to get rid of it!!) and treatments for myself, my kids, and grandkids so I could stop this insanity. I started with essential oils, making various salves and such to help with minor owies, rashes , etc. I looked into various other websites that taught about herbs, tinctures, and other "voodoo concoctions" as my kids refer to them!

Heidi's site became my go-to. Her knowledge of herbs is vast, and her teaching skills makes it easy to understand and takes any fear or intrepidation out, and instills confidence. When she offered the monthly classes I jumped on it, her rates were SO affordable compared to all the others, she's a walking encyclopedia, and she is a kind, warm, humble human being that is easy to listen to and watch!

When I started doing all this my kids were sure I'd flipped my lid, now they're calling me, "Hey mom, ya got any kinda voodoo concoction for this...." If I don't, all I have to do is get on Healing Harvest or go into the student group for the Tribe and I can find a recipe, and all the links to the resources needed to get the ingredients!" --Nicole H.

Get started now!

I love being in the Tribe! Heidi is a great teacher, and I love having so much information on each herb to print out and put in my own binder. All the PDFs and videos are downloadable. I also love being in the Facebook group. Everyone is so supportive as we learn and share together

- Heather

"I love learning how to use the medicinal plants safely, and it makes me feel more comfortable using them with my family. I am thinking more often now about how I can make this or that with herbs,, more willing to start to experiment . I am having a mind shift, instead of grabbing for a bottle of pills, I think to myself, what could I make to help with this issue, it is a very powerful shift. The Confident Herbal Tribe is worth it!"

--Anonymous student (I constantly work to improve members' experiences, and surveying anonymously ensures I get accurate feedback! This quote is from one of those surveys.)

At the time Mrs V started the tribe I was half way through a beginner course from a online school. I was struggling with the format of the course and was disappointed with my progress and support there. After I became involved with the tribe I never went back to finish that course because what I found was not a school curriculum, but an active and vibrant family of herbalists lead by an excellent teacher (she has career of formal teaching behind her) that takes each student under her wing and takes a personal interest in her student.

I have progressed in my herbal studies under her by leaps and bounds. Thank you Mrs V for the passion and love you show us.

Here's a list of what you'll receive by joining our Confident Herbal Tribe:

  • BONUSES: Access to many of my longer herbal courses periodically, over the months.
  • Support directly from me, which includes WEEKLY live Q&A's, replays, special projects, and more!
  • Support from the group! Learning about herbalism can be daunting, but in this small student group, you will have friends to support you in each month's learning projects, with your own needs, and you'll make some incredible herbal friends who "get" you.
  • Each herbal or aromatic masterclass includes a plant monograph for your materia medica; growing, harvesting, foraging information; folklore and traditional use information; and lots of recipes and projects for the herb of the month, and presentation via text and video.
  • Essential oil masterclasses are also now part of the Tribe! Essential oils should be part of every herbal practice, as these are simply another plant preparation. Most herbalists don't have working knowledge of essential oils. I have clinical experience with both herbs and oils.
  • You'll also get access to many of the other courses in the school covering a general herbal topic for deeper knowledge on a monthly basis OR a mini-course that is sold individually outside the Tribe (free to members). Examples are cold and flu care, herbs to support stress and anxiety, specific herbal actions, herbal formulary, and lots more.
  • You will learn deeply about different herbs and/or essential oils, and you'll have a great time sharing your projects in the community group.
  • Access to all the masterclasses any time you want.
  • Short and actionable content that you can put to use right away.

When you join The Confident Herbal Tribe you'll also have the camaraderie of other student herbalists as you progress on your herbal path. You'll also have access to me, personally, in our live Question and Answer chats each week!

The valuable information and projects you'll learn will be a needed and practical (and fun) legacy for your children and grandchildren. You'll be able to teach them the traditional ways of natural health and healing....a legacy that can continue for generations to come.

So join us now because your family deserves the best health possible, and so do you!

A comment from one of my students:

I want to publicly thank Heidi Villegas once again for sharing her knowledge. Many of the herbal preparations I have made so far have been to help my kids with various things. My daughter is graduating high school this year and has a tremendous amount on her plate, with an AP exam coming up and preparing for a Chinese intensive program she is doing this summer. She is understandably stressed out. I made up some of Heidi's De-Stress tea, and it helps her. I have been having her take some eleuthero, too. Part of the reason I got on the herb journey is because she was experiencing some exhaustion last year, and the doctors had no answers. Blood tests showed nothing, and they just shrugged their shoulders. Heidi, thank you! Your efforts in educating others about herbs are benefiting people far and wide. ❤️H. S.

THIS is the herbalism group I have been looking for! As a health-research addict, with a passion for natural healing, I’ve long wanted to take a comprehensive herbalism course to gain confidence in my home use of herbal preparations. But the high quality courses that drew my interest were also well beyond my budget. This course is refreshingly affordable, and is a wealth of practical, easy-to-follow information. It has breathed so much life and confidence into my use of herbs at home! ---Anna M.

"Since I started The Confident Herbalist and joined The Tribe, I have learned so much more about herbs. I am centered in one place rather than learning from a whole lot of herbalist. I wasn't learning anything before I got here. I am using the herbs more rather than making them and leaving them on the shelf, and I love the lessons each month." ---Annie L.

How the Confident Herbal Tribe Works:

When you sign up for the monthly membership, the annual membership option, OR one of the the lifetime payment options for the Confident Herbal Tribe, you will receive access to the current month's lesson, as well as ALL the PAST month's lessons too.

In the student group, which is private and OFF social media (no Facebook, here) so you have true privacy when discussing your wellness and herbal questions, you have the support of myself and other herbalists and aromatherapists of all levels. You also have access to the past replays of our Live Question and Answer chats, which we hold each week. These alone are priceless!

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PURCHASE THESE COURSES SEPARATELY! They are automatically included in the membership. You can see a complete (current) list by scrolling down below. Remember, new courses are added often.

The benefit of starting now is that you will be grandfathered in at a very low rate, and your price will never increase as long as you're a member in good standing.

As the membership site grows and more and more content, courses, challenges, and lessons are added, the price WILL go up. It's a good idea to get in now and enjoy the lower monthly rate for your herbal learning, or take advantage of the annual option or the Lifetime payment option.

If you don't care for subscription memberships, I get that! So, now we have two different Lifetime Payment Options for you, which enables you to own and access all content for as long as the internet is around.

"....So when Heidi then decided to create the tribe with a monthly course really delving into the specifics of one herb, it's preparations, actions, etc I was thrilled. My confidence and uses of herbs in different forms grew by leaps and bounds. If anyone is on the fence, let me tell you the tribe is fantastic. It has helped me grow as an herbalist to every day use of many different, safe herbs. Not only do you have the ebooks, recipes, videos, and overall support from Heidi, you truly do have a tribe of classmates that help each other learn, give advice, and answer questions to support one another as well. Did I mention Heidi is a great teacher, too?" ---Misty T.

"I've been wanting to learn more about herbs for years, but it's just so overwhelming. The Confident Herbalist is just what I needed to take my knowledge to the next level. Learning from Heidi is just like sitting down with a friend! I feel excited about all the possibilities and confident about the herbal preparations I can make and use." Sarah T.

Get started now!

“What a great resource for those beginning their herbal journey! And it is jam packed with a ton of valuable information each month. Heidi has done a fantastic job of making the monthly lessons easy to follow in a language that isn’t overly complicated. She makes it feel very personable and as though I am learning from a close friend. I highly recommend this tribe for anyone who wants to learn how to use herbs safely and effectively in their everyday life, one herb at a time!” --Mary W.

What you do next can be the difference between continuing to WANT to learn herbalism and natural health for your family and actually DOING it....becoming a Confident, Inspired, Empowered Home Herbalist!

It's easy to get started!

As I update this page (December, 2021) there are now 48 masterclasses included in the Tribe! Scroll down to see the available courses....

** 50+ complete Deep Dive Masterclass courses on specific herbs, essential oils, and foundational topics. These masterclasses include:

* Printable eBook, roughly 30-45 pages long, containing information about growing, identifying, harvesting, preparing, benefits & uses, a complete materia medica, and lots of projects and recipes for you to work through at your leisure.

* A video about the herb or essential oil, with hands-on foraging or gardening film if the season is appropriate

* Additional videos with hands-on project applications so you can learn how to make your own medicine organically and step-by-step.

* A student community that is helpful, supportive, and knowledgeable. I'm in the group at least once daily (except Sunday)

* Live Q&A sessions each week or two at most, so you can ask your questions and get additional teaching and lessons right there. These are available for replay at your convenience if you can't make the live Q&A.

* Additional mini-courses on relevant herbal topics, such as formulation. These are sold a la carte outside the Tribe within the Healing Harvest Homestead School of Traditional Skills...AND you get many of these FREE as members of the Tribe

YES! All this for about $1 a day. It's an incredible value, and as new content is continually added, the price of the membership will eventually go up. You're grandfathered in at the low price you join join now!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have access to the membership?
As long as you continue the monthly payments if you choose a subscription option, you will have access to all the content in the Tribe. More content is added each month, and these mini-courses will never go away. If you choose one of the Lifetime options, you'll be able to access the content as if it's a course. In this case, you can access any existing and future material for as long as Healing Harvest Homestead owns and runs The Confident Herbalist Tribe.
Will the price go up?
Yes.... That's why now's the best time to join us! The price for The Confident Herbal Tribe, as content continues to be added and grow, will (and has already) increased over time. HOWEVER, you will be grandfathered in at the price you start with as long as you remain a member in good standing. This is a long term investment in your herbal education at a reasonable and affordable price per month, year, or if you're really serious, for a lifetime!
What if I'm not happy with the membership and want to cancel?
You can cancel at any time! Once you cancel, you will no longer have access to any of the content, and your membership in the private student community, The Confident Herbalist, will be terminated immediately. If you choose the Lifetime Course option, you have five days to decide if the Tribe is for you or not. If you find it's not what you want or need, just reach out to me for a full refund.
Will the membership ever change?
Eventually, there will be so much content in this herbal membership that I may make some changes to the format and organization. However, it will ALWAYS be well worth what your monthly, yearly, or lifetime rate is. And of course, you can unsubscribe at any time if you are unhappy if you're a monthly or annual member. At this time, courses are divided into three different organizational systems, which makes it easy for you to make decisions about where to begin that meets YOUR wellness needs. :-) I reserve the right to make changes at any time to any new content being added and the timing thereof.
Are there any physical products?
All the course material is digital and downloadable (not physical), so you have it as you need it. I have many students who like to print out the monthly lessons and have created beautiful notebooks filled with their materia medicas and details about the plants. **At this time, we do have physical books attractively bound for purchase. These have become very popular, but they're not necessary. You can find out more about how to buy these if you want to over in the student group!
If I cancel, when does my access to the course materials and the group end?
Should you decide to cancel your membership, your access to the content and the student group will be terminated immediately at that time. You're welcome to sign up again at any time in order to resume access to the content. Just keep in mind that the price of the membership is increasing incrementally as I add more and more valuable content to it. If you purchase one of the Lifetime Options, you own the Tribe as a course.
Is there a place where I can ask questions and share my projects?
Yes! Included in the Confident Herbalist Tribe is an amazingly supportive, happy, and encouraging student group. Members are at varying levels in their herbal journey, and many have been studying with me since I first began teaching nearly three years ago! Wonderful herbal friendships have been formed in this group, and we welcome newcomers all the time! The best thing is to introduce yourself and jump in right away!
Are refunds available if I decide it's not for me?
For the subscription options, there are no refunds available. For the Lifetime Options, if you reach out to me within a week of purchasing, I'm happy to refund your payment and remove you from any payment plan, if you chose that option.
How often are new courses added?
New courses are added "on average," once per month. Occasionally, a month might go by where no new course is added. Also, there will be some months where two new courses are added. There are so many courses in the Tribe at this point, it's truly a massive amount of information. Eventually, the Tribe will get to the point where no new courses are added and will be fully self-contained, but this is most likely years down the road. I do reserve the right to make any changes to the content of the Herbal Tribe at any time in terms of adding new content. All content added will always remain in the Tribe.
If this is an "herbal" membership and trainings, why are essential oils included?
Most herbalists view essential oils as an aspect of herbalism. Unfortunately, most herbalists have little or no training on using essential oils safely; conversely, most aromatherapists lack training in herbalism. I bring both backgrounds to the table. I view essential oils as an important aspect for supporting mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Like an herbal tea is a type of herbal preparation, essential oils are another type of herbal preparation. Essential oils are incredibly synergistic and helpful when used along with herbs for your wellness choices.

Dear Confident Herbalist,

Don't worry if you are just beginning and feel like you have no idea where to begin learning the vast topic of herbalism...I know how that can feel, and this is why I created the Confident Herbal Tribe. This is a safe community of students where you will learn effective home herbalism with tried and true remedies and recipes using mostly herbs with some aromatherapy sprinkled in for fun.

I know you're going to love The Confident Herbal Tribe! It's a fabulous and excited crew of hands-on, organic, supportive herbalists who are learning together, and we would love to have you join us!

I have some fun recipes and projects planned over the next few months, and you'll get a chance to put your herbal skills into practice on your own time frame.

You'll have community support, and you'll make lots of new herbal friends in the process who will be there to help.

As your herbal teacher in this group, I am active in the student group daily (except Sunday) and include live Q&A's each week that will answer any herbal questions you have as well as provide additional herbal lessons. Don't worry if you miss the Q&A's! They'll be recorded for you to watch later any time you want.

Let's go have some herbal fun!
