Laguna Hills Herbal Preparations Course


“This Summer, Guest Instructor Shana Lipner-Grover will be returning to our Laguna Hills classroom to provide another information packed course in Herbal Preparations”, announced Harmony Morgan, Director for Healing Hands School of Holistic Health – Laguna Hills.  “Registration begins on June 17th for classes scheduled for June 30th and July 1st, so mark your calendars, this class fills up quickly!”, she added.


Providing an education in the holistic healing arts, which includes Herbalism, is what Healing Hands is all about. School Founders, Paula and Neha Curtiss understood that a comprehensive curriculum in the Holistic Healing Arts would need to include Herbalism, the study and use of plants for food and medicinal purposes.  Healing Hands 10-hour ‘Herbal Preparations’ course is just one of many Herbal classes taught to students by renown Clinical Herbalist, Field Botanist, Herbal Medicine Maker, and Guest Instructor, Ms. Shana Lipner-Grover.

Shana has been providing classes in herbal medicine and nutrition to students at Healing Hands for more than a decade. Shana’s professional education includes numerous field-based, Botanical Apprenticeships including: Columbines School of Botanical Study and Southwest School of Botanical Medicine.  In addition to her course in Herbal Preparations, Shana teaches an Advanced Herbal Formulations course, plus a course titled: Herbal Studies & Applications. One unique aspect of Shana’s herbal classes includes field trips to nature trails for wild-crafting, (the harvesting of medicinal plants from nature).

In Shana’s class, students learn to make several herbal products to address a variety of personal and medicinal needs.  These may include medicinal syrups, bath salts, lip balms, room deodorizers, personal deodorant, hand sanitizers and more! Shana’s Herbal Preparations class empowers students to save money by making their own herbal products to use and share them with friends and family. A materials fee of $35.00 pays for all the products made in class.

In addition to serving as an Instructor for Healing Hands Herbal Studies classes, Shana manages her own private clinical practice, field-based Herbal School and a high-quality herbal product line called Sage Country Herbs.
