About Janet, the Course presenter:

Over decades I have extended my strong background in Pharmacy into natural health and well-being. I have diplomas in Aromatherapy, Reflexology, am a Professional Astrologer, and am initiated as an Ethnomedicine Practitioner in the field of Traditional Health Care. I am also a prior Chairperson of the Herb Association of South Africa (HAoSA).

Supporting healthy lifestyles has played a pivotal role in my career. I grow and use my own vegetables, fruit, herbs and spices. I run frequent practical workshops. I firmly believe in the preventative properties of herbs, and how their tonic actions increase our bodies vitality and energy.

I deeply respect the well-known Hippocrates quote “Let food be thy medicine and medicines be thy food”. My philosophy is to live life, ‘in the now’, as holistically as possible. I am passionate about sharing the knowledge I have. I enjoy familiarising people with the innate wisdom of aromatic, culinary and medicinal plants and vegetables, and the natural ways to help ourselves.
