Teleclass interview was awesome Susun! I just get calm hearing your voice. Love you.... Someday I will make it to NY to study with you!



Hello Ms. Weed,

I am really excited to be traveling the Appalachian Trail this summer, and while I'm near you, I would love to come to your place for a visit. Your books and youtube videos have helped me so much to deepen my faith in myself and plants as my allies and develop relationships with the plants...

thanks for all you've done in my life!
love, Melissa


Hi Susun,

You don't know me, but I feel compelled to write you. I am an Herb Mentor member. I just wanted to thank you for all of your contributions to the world, Mother Earth, and Humanity. I have followed you thru Herb Mentor, your books and even on youtube. You so freely share your wealth of information. So many people take and take, without ever giving thanks. I know it takes an enormous amount of effort to do what you do. So, I am writing to say Thank You! You Rock!

May Blessings be upon you and your family.

… I have been following you for yrs and have all your books and have shared them with many. Loving your videos. I am dealing with lyme disease and co infections and more and home bound. Peace & Blessings to you.




… I am very influenced by your books and my work is certainly in the wise woman tradition. I look forward to crossing paths some day.




I must write and tell you how much joy I receive from this site and the wealth of information which has come to me due to its existence. I have written before: in the previous email I had just begun by placing my first tentative order. I mentioned then that I am blind, however what I did not say is that I have an intensive interest in herbs and believe without any doubt that I can learn. Thank you again and truly I promise that I shall not inundate your in-box with email from myself. I merely wanted to thank you once again!!

Green Blessings and may resplendent starlight ever grace your path.



…Thank you for the nurturance you spread about the world, and upon we Goddesses, Green Witches and Children of Gaia!




Dear Susun,

Well done on your videos! You are very well spoken and convincing. I love you books.




Hi Susun,

First and foremost, thank you for amazing tips, remedies and advice! I am very interested in natural medicine and what Magna Mater brings along…

Best Regards,


Thanks you so much for your writings. I recently purchased a copy of your childbearing year book for a pregnant friend. Your menopause book has saved me from severe anemia and RLS. ..




Dear Susun,

As I write tears fill my eyes... The school day is just starting. I'm surrounded by the comfort and joy of my 11th grade chemistry students. Fortunately, today we're in the computer lab. This luxury affords me the time to reach out to you. You may remember me. I'm Anna from New Jersey. We met at your Green Witch Intensive in July 2008. Inspired by your guidance, I enrolled in the Green Witch home-study course. Although I haven't followed the exercises, sent in my request for the book selections...etc.,

I have been loving Mama Earth and growing as a Green Witch. I have a reoccurring feeling inside to see you - to reconnect, to heal. I wish to walk barefoot on your land, to open up, surrender and let the tears and laughter flow. I need to reclaim and express my voice, my identity. There are things I need to say, questions I have to ask, and love and creativity I have to share. I need to return to resolve and make peace with something that happened during my visit. I left your land with some unresolved energy that's been holding me back. My intention is to resolve it, forgive and move on freely. Once I do, my stagnation will dissolve and I'll be able to enter into my Green Witch studies more fully and alive. .. Thanks Susun for your consideration.

Brightest Blessings,


I'm sorry my English is not very well. My name is Chantal, I'm pagan and I love your work with herbs. I have your book "healing wise" and I love it. In my family, many have breast cancer... your work help me to take care of myself.
Thank you and blessings.


You are amazing! Thank you for introducing Cronewort to me!

Thank you SO MUCH. You are the best! I really appreciate your time. I hope to see you come to Florida some time soon.




So blessed to be able to consult with you...thank you for your wisdom, joy and kindness...




My name is Maria. I hear you met my friends from Hecate's Wheel. I wish I could have come up there too. You are my all time favorite herbalist… Thank you for all you do.

Peace and bright blessings,



Hi Susun,

I love your herbal remedies, I am currently using your tumor and cysts melting packs… I learned to sprout from your website, and learn so much from you, thanks for sharing and being you!




Dear Susun,

Let me first thank you for the inspiration that you've given me, to discover the wonderful world of infusions! Having tasted comfrey, nettles, red clover, oatstraw, horsetail, and linden this week, I am excited beyond words...Linden is my favorite!

Your student,



.....I can't overstate how important Susun's books have been to our life here. I started drinking daily herbal infusions over 15 years ago, thanks to Susun's book and have since expanded into herbal tinctures, vinegars and honeys!

Thanks for everything you all do!!



I've received mail from your wonderful school, even tho I live in California and would have difficulty affording attendance. I also have a book or two of yours. Your simple presence uplifts me.




Hello Susun and Family,

I have been enjoying your youtube video very much, they are so helpful to me, thank you and keep them coming! Monica Jean is very cute too!




You are such a beautiful person!!! I have read & learned so much from you and your site, I could only hope that one day I can make such a difference in humanity. Lots of love to you Susun :) You are so special to many:)




Dear Susun Weed,

I have just bought the book on 'Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbearing Year'. I'm very pleased with the information in your book and your fountain of knowledge on herbs! I am on a new path to herbal healing for my bladder and the condition interstitial cystitis. I have recently also purchased 'Along the Healing Path' by another author but wanted to purchase your book after finding you on the internet. I'm so glad I found you! So far I have been drinking marshmallow root tea, raspberry leaf tea and occasionally catnip. Today I added a small amount of Comfrey leaf just to see how my poor bladder tolerates it. I have purchased another couple of herbs to try; red clover flowers and mullein leaves…

Many thanks!


Dear Susun,

I am so deeply thankful that I found your website and books on herbs and natural healing. My health has improved so much. My energy and hormonal balance is so much better, and I used to have gum problems no matter how scrupulous with oral hygiene I was. Now I could never brush or floss and I won't ever get bleeding gums! I know that sounds gross, but I have experimented on myself and it is true. I went a week once (while at home alone) and my gums were great, no bleeding at all. I can tell that I am not getting cavities, either. Maybe ones I had are even reversing! I use lots of nourishing herbal infusions, and eat lots of seaweeds. My family would turn up their noses if they knew that I hid seaweed in their soups, sauces and rice, millet, etc. But the wakame that I buy is so mild tasting they don't even know it is there. Also, I used to bruise, and take vitamin c capsules. They worked some, but not as well as the herbs. Thanks so much for this precious, precious knowledge that you are passing on to others and to new generations…

Thank you for your time and wisdom,
