I finished my wild foraging instructor training in 2022. I have been studying self-taught, training with wild herbs and preparing various delicious dishes since five years in total. My strengths are cooking, make herbal spices and drinks. The information about wild herbs is endless, so I am constantly learning new things. Herbal cosmetics is not my field, but I guide about wellness on a general level, for example with herbal foot baths and back treatments with wild herbs ´´´aroma in the sauna as an experience.´´´´´
