Dear Susun,
Thank you for the Light you vibrate into this world,

Peace & Blessings,




I am new on my "green witch" path, and as a solitary practitioner.
There is so much information, and gathering information I came across your site and was drawn to the honesty and affordability of your classes, workshops, etc.




Dear Susun Weed,

I love your Wise Woman Herbal Website. I find it uplifting, inspiring, and very informative. It's wise herbal people like you who have inspired my herbalist organic earth-friendly writing…

For the Earth,



Thank you!
Your website is phenomenal. Add me to your mailing list.



Dear Ms. Weed,

I have just finished reading "Becoming an Herbalist" and I sit here with this overwhelming desire to say Thank you.



Lo and behold, while I have been searching out classes ( affordable) , I kept running into this woman by the name of Susun Weed --each and every time I would set out for knowledge on herbals or for classes---you have found your way into my web browser. I began to skim thru your website, have even wanted to attend a workshop however, between the kids and their father I simply would not be allowed to go, I am hoping to take part in one of the Correspondence Courses you have offered.

One day, when I am stronger I plan on visiting for a workshop so that I may personally Thank-you for the inspiration you have placed in my heart. And Thank you for always ending up in my browser window---you can not possibly know the spark of hope you have ignited into this Castaway.

I am sure you get hundreds of letters telling you many of the same things I am writing now, however, I simply again felt compelled to write to you to let you know, how much you have touched my life.

You gave me the courage to say, "Today I begin my healing".

Love and light

Dear Susun.

Just want to tell you how much I have enjoyed refering to your books over the years. I particularly love the 'Menopause Years'.


Hi Susun-

It was wonderful to finally meet you at the symposium. I wanted to let you know that I have found a great way to drink my nettle infusion…if I mix half infusion and half organic apple juice…it tastes great!! Thought I would pass that onto you.

Hope to get to New York and take a class with you some day!
Love and Joy-
Mary Lou



Please sign me up for the free e-zine. I'm currently studying shamanism, and herbal healing is next on my list.Thanks for adding me, and thanks for the work you have done and offered as a gift.




Hello Susun,

I was so happy to stumble on to your website! I have received herbal advice from a wonderful lady in St. Augustine, Florida who sings your praises.

A few years ago, she introduced me to Vitex and taught me how to make tinctures and infusions. I had been suffering from severe menstrual cycles. I have now been taking the Vitex tincture for about 3 years now, on a daily basis. I even have two bushes growing in my backyard so that I can harvest my own "gold" from them!

The Vitex has worked the miracles that its reputation …
Thank you so very much for your time, and for all that you contribute to life itself!
