I am an herbalist and Co-Owner of a successful herbal apothecary since 2004. I have been making oils and salves that we sell at the shop and I have made them for over 15 years. Why I choose to even watch her videos when I already know and make oils? I must say the best herbalists will always be looking to learn new and exciting ways to do things and I am no exception. I was literally blown away at the oil that I ended up with. It was the darkest and most medicinal smelling herbal oil I had ever made.
If you want to learn more about herbal oils and all they can do to help heal your family I highly recommend taking this class. Kami has so much to offer and makes it simple and accessible for all to put into action. She is a true herbal oil goddess. Thank You Kami for sharing so generously with us.

"I love these oils. They smell amazing and feel so great. I've been blowing my nose a lot due to a sudden head cold and the oils helped soothe my raw skin. I can’t believe how much more connected I feel to my body, the plants, the seasons and healthy lifestyle choices. "
"A class on Oils that sounds interesting, but at my age (80) is it worth taking? That was my first thought as the class was presented to me. I decided to take it. I learned things, right off the bat that made oil making so much easier than I had ever seen before. In the past by the time I had my oils infused with the herb they had a chance of being moldy or rancid. Kami has made it so much easier and fool proof, seeing it done on her video’s makes it so simple. Kami takes any guess work out of the process. I am so glad I have taken the class and would recommend it all who are concerned for their health and the wellbeing of their family. She has empowered me to produce my own healing oils that I can have confidence in."
"I absolutely love the way you teach, I thoroughly enjoy every moment spent "in your company". As a teacher myself I know how important it is to connect with your audience, you do it brilliantly. I picked up many bits and pieces of information that I had missed in my prior studies. Thank you so much. Please keep on sharing yourself with the herbal world, both newcomers and oldies. You are truly a joy to us. I have had a very bad shoulder for years, thanks to a blend of infused oils I can actually pull a shirt off over my head without wanting to scream!"
"I wasn’t planning on using my comfrey infused oil so soon, but I dropped a shelf on my foot and instantly was thankful that I made it up a week prior to my accident. The video about compresses allowed me to be armed and ready and it worked like a charm.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge in this class. Due to applying the comfrey, I walked away, without any bruising the next day. Pretty remarkable since my foot immediately started to bruise after the accident. It was doozy of an accident. Another success story for you to share.
Thank you so much for all you do.
Saying “thank you” to you just doesn’t seem like enough. I’m SO glad I signed up for this class. It has paid dividends in so many different ways. "
"Taking your class on healing herbal oils was one of the best things I've done to further and inspire my herbal journey.
I heard about the benefits of Trauma Oil and I thought about making it myself, but there was too much mishmash information on the internet. Thankfully I found your class. I appreciate what a generous teacher you are, all the bonus information plus your natural way of connecting (loved the Q and A sessions, got a lot out of those) got me so excited about infusing oils.
Now I have a tall cupboard full of my infusions. They go into all of my salves, balms and blends. Thank you for sharing this wisdom so enthusiastically and thoroughly."
"Your approach to teaching and holding my hand through this class made herbal oils so easy. Moving forward in my life, I am always going to make and use herbal oils. This has been the best introduction to herbs and learning about the oils helped me understand herbal medicine so much more. Thank you so much."

"Thank you for being so very inspiring. I love your way of being with the plants and working with them. After I learned to make oils from you, they just never fail any longer. Before, I threw so much nice herbal oil away. And now the oils never mold and I love the deeper aromatics and find them more therapeutic. In my Clinic, I love to use the oils on stressed out clients. It grounds them and gets the heart calm and easy going. I also now make mint, melissa, calendula, hypericum and so on. "
"I have so much gratitude for my herbal wise woman teacher, Kami McBride. She fed my plant medicine enthusiastic curiosity with herbal knowledge. I draw upon these skills everyday for maintaining my self care. And I've fully integrated this wisdom and know-how into my holistic health practice. My clients love my herb-infused massage oils. Kami's offerings will empower you in living vibrantly!"

"I’ve worked with herbs and wild plants but only began dabbling with oils a couple years ago. When I found your course I hesitated momentarily due to cost but the lifetime access thing sold me. What I love is the videos and simple tips - and I love the Q & A section. What I enjoy most about your program is you - you are engaging, funny and down to earth and so so passionate! I love hearing real life stories and feeling like I’m part of a community. "

"I joined your class last year and I am still learning so much! You are an inspirational mentor/teacher embodied with deep earth wisdom. I had no hesitation diving straight into class and making my first oil. I felt confident and trusted your methods which I knew were informed by years of experience. And also for the first time in my life I felt willing to experiment and play with the process and have made lots of different oils over the past year. The body oiling techniques you teach in class have encouraged me to take better care for myself. I'm hoping all this will ripple out to my family. I'm very grateful to have found you and feel excited to keep learning and exploring with the plants."

"I recently purchased your Handcrafted Healing Herbal Oils course. I would like to let you know just how much I liked it. I had great results with the arnical oil, it works lika a charm for my sore muscles. I have made oils in the past, but what you teach is so much better. You have made this process so easy and quick."
"I was dabbling in making infused oils before I found your class. I am a retired nurse. I have a chronic pain condition from a nerve injury at work in 1986. Doctors kept me on meds for over 30 yrs. I weaned myself off all the meds by using Trauma Oil plus EO blend I make. It works! I am able to make all the infused oils that are in it thanks to you. I love being able to make them myself. Your class helped so much.
I learned so much and love making, using, and sharing my oils. I really appreciate having lifetime access to the course and to the new content. Thank you so much."
"Kami's course was foundational to learning how to extract the healing capacity of the herbs into the oils. Her tips and tricks were invaluable to taking the oil infusions to the next level! The clear content and instructions boosted my confidence in creating very potent oils. Thank you Kami for passing this knowledge on to us so that we can keep supporting our community"

"IF you are on the fence about taking this course, don't be! Just dive in! Kami is the most thorough voice out there right now teaching herbal oil making that produces consistent, shelf stable, quality oils that are the basis for effective herbalism and cosmetic making. Even with my experience of more than 10 years of making herbal oils I learned more in this course. The nuggets I picked up in this class, and the one on one mentorship from Kami that comes with it, plus the new bonus content being added has made this an investment I'll keep benefitting from for a long time. Thank you Kami!"

Her consciousness and abundant knowledge make for a very influential teacher. She has helped me to make a space in my life for self-care and my own health.

"I am amazed by the beauty and the benefits of the oils. My grand kids are using the oils! I love how easy and cost effective this is and you opened a new way for me to experience botanical healing and medicinal products. Thank you!”
—Beckie R., Az
My ultimate favorite oil is calendula. With its use, I no longer take anything over the counter for pain. I believe it has made the biggest difference with moving lymph fluid and decreased swelling. Less swelling means less pain!
"I am so happy I found Kami!
Her method for making the most precious herbal oils is without a doubt the easiest and quickest method I have found.
My first try was calendula and I couldn't believe the intensity of color and scent! Every one of the oils I have made following Kami's direction is far superior to any others I made using the plain infusion method and waiting for weeks. It's not only easy, it is FUN! This is for sure my "go to" method for making oils!

"I want to thank you for all the information I have received from you. I took your Infused Oils course and have been making my oils using your method ever since. Before when I infused oils, they turned out looking like olive oil with a bit of a tint. Now they are rich and beautiful and I have a variety of oils that I use for multiple reasons. I also use them to make salves and body butters with.
Also, I struggled all winter with sinus infections that I could not get under control this last winter. When I saw your self care lesson on sinus care, I decided to try it, nothing else had worked. It was amazing. My sinuses have cleared out Thank you so much. I have shared this with everyone I know who has sinus problems. I am sharing what I have learned and made with anyone who will listen, so thank you again."

"I wanted to thank you again for creating this class! It has been a total game changer for me in my own Naturopathic practice. I have been making infused herbal oils for about 15 years now but only the way I was taught in my Naturopathic and herbal training.
The wisdom and knowledge that you share in class and then applying the methods you teach, has made my herbal oil products so much more potent and healing. This is my goal in helping others to heal and truly get well, to give them the best products available.
Thank you so much again Kami for teaching me and for helping my clients have the best herbal oils to heal and nourish their bodies! With Love and Gratitude,"

—Layla, British Columbia
"Taking Kami's Handcrafted Healing Herbal Oils course has been an incredible support to my practice as a bodyworker and herbalist. Making oils with the methods I learned in this course supported my small herbal business to thrive. I have received amazing feedback from people who purchased the oils I made using Kami's method, and utilizing the oils I made in my bodywork practice has provided an added nourishing aspect to my offerings. I have friends and family members who have also benefited from these oils immensely as gifts, to support them through everyday pain management and general self care. I encourage anyone who is interested in learning how to make high quality herbal oils to take Kami's course!"

"Your herbal oils course has helped me to care for myself and my family in a whole new way. I use my herbal body oils every night and I couldn't imagine my life without them. I am forever grateful"
"It sounds like such a cliche, "Oh this course changed my life!" but it really did. What I paid for this class literally feels like nothing compared to what I received from it. If you are on the fence or at all thinking about doing this, I 100% say go for it, it will change your life. "
— V. Keen, Vermont
I am so loving everything you teach! The St. John’s wort oil took the arthritis pain out of a friends’ hand, she was shocked (and grateful)! Thank you for making your herbal classes FUN!!
"This class and working with the oils has helped me reconnect back into my body and feel more grounded and calm during a very stressful time. I feel like the oils have been an incredible gateway for me to be more connected to the plants in a way that I wasn't before. I have read a lot of books and been studying herbs for awhile but I feel much more in relationship with the plants I've made oil with. There has been a whole other level of retention and recall with my herbal learning and oil making has helped me get ot know the herbs on a much deeper level."
—Li Duran, California
"This course has helped me tremendously with how to extract the skin loving properties of herbs! I have read a lot of articles and watched videos over the years but none explained it like this course did. I compared my previous infusions with this method and the color (end results) were so different . For example , my Calendula infusion before was a light yellow color and now it’s deep green and so much more concentrated . I’m making salves using them and I bathe most nights with Lavender infusion and sometimes Calendula too. I love being able to just grab one of these and apply neat for whatever I need! Thanks Kami! ”
"I love the process and so appreciate this class!
To date I have made 6 different infused oils and they are all beautiful oils!
The lavender is wonderful in massage as it is not as overwhelming as an essential oil can be to some people but has the therapeutic properties and definitely helps people relax.
I have been making herbal oils for 10 years or so now. And ya win some ya lose some, which stinks! Sometimes it was great and others it went rancid. Fresh plant oils were always so much better then totally dried, anytime I used totally dried the oils were colorless, did not help much other than what the oil itself was helpful for. BUT your method, what a no brainer! As soon as I started I was like wow, this is such a simple, but amazingly smart idea!! Wow, the oils are deep, rich, smell great and make the most amazing salves!!!! The calendula oil, pure gold! This class has been so valuable to me and so many others, thank you so much!
"A Fabulous Class! Kami takes oil making to a whole new level! My oils are stronger, potent and more shelf stable. I am so inspired by this course! I feel it's my way into deepening my own self care and all those that surround me. I will be making all kinds of great things for my family and friends! Deep gratitude Kami for sharing your knowledge in such great ways. "
"This course with Kami will give you the foundation and techniques so that you'll feel the confidence and freedon to make oils from plants that grow in your area. I have taken lots of herb classes over the past 30 years and I learned a lot. I highly recommend this course, It is perfect for beginners and if you've been at it for awhile, you will learn more here. "
"Since being in class, I’ve made all the oils for the muscle cramp salve and gave it to my father. The drugs he takes for his painful joints do not work. I suggested for him to try the salve.
After a few days he called and said, "This is really doing good to my body!" So at this time I am now running out of my oil stock stock!! Thank you so much Kami, it is so exciting learning more and getting deeper and deeper in connection with plants and nature. "
"I can safely say @kamimcbride is a true expert in the art of herbal oil making, and learning this craft from her has enabled me to get the most out of each herb when it comes to infusing oils for medicinal purposes. As a practitioner, I've found deepening my knowledge and developing this skill invaluable, especially when I need to make topical prescriptions for clients I know will be effective.
She opens her online course to professionals and home herbalists alike, so if you can register, I highly recommend it. You'll gain knowledge and skills to last a lifetime, and there's nothing better than bringing herbalism back into our lives and our homes. "
