  • Weekly Journal of an Herbalist posts, where I share a peek into the work I do on a daily basis with the plant medicine. Often my students wish they could come and just spend time with me as I tend the herb garden, gather medicine, and make up recipes. I can't always bring everyone into my home, but I can offer you a glimpse as I move through the year working with the plants. At this level, you'll get updates almost every week in the form or short blog posts and photos, describing the work I'm doing right now. You can follow me through the season to see what I'm harvesting, how I'm processing the plants, and what kinds of medicine I'm making. 
  • Occasional recipes, so you can recreate what I'm making, or tweak it a bit to make it your own.
  • Thank you for subscribing! I'd love to send you a Nettlejuice sticker! I look forward to sharing my journal with you.

About Nettlejuice

An Herbalist's Journal

Did you ever wish you could become an apprentice to a working herbalist? There are a lot of online classes out there, but how many opportunities are there to see what an herbalist does each week of the year? Wouldn't it be nice to know when to harvest a plant, how to process, and what kinds of medicine to make in real time? I'm going to offer you just that! Now, I can't possibly bring you all into my home and garden, but I can open my journal to you, and give you a peak into my medicine making world as it happens.

My name is April Coburn. I live in southeastern Pennsylvania where I grow, harvest, wildcraft, and process herbal medicine for my community. I've been teaching classes in herbal medicine making for over 10 years, including a 9-month Folk Herbalism course and a 9-month Advanced Apothecary course. It's always sad when a course ends and we have to say goodbye. Often my students wish they could continue coming to my garden and help with whatever I'm doing. This inspired me to offer an online herbal journal! Whether you've studied with me in the past and wish to continue to learn about how I work with the plants, or you found your way here through other channels, welcome. I hope you find something of value in this offering.

If you are curious, but not ready to subscribe, click "follow". You will get access to one post a month, absolutely free. These posts could be on about medicine I am making, what I'm harvesting, how I'm using the plant medicine, or something different. If you like what you see and want access to more content, consider joining at one of the three tier levels. At the Coltsfoot level I'll give your several times a month about how I'm working with the plant medicine. At the Lobelia level, you'll also receive monthly monographs about the plants I work with, so you can get to know them better and start building your own materia medica file. And at the Rose level you will have access to all of this, plus you'll have access to live, online classes I will be offering several times a year.

Let's dip our toes in this experiment and see how it works. medicine makers, forward!
