I am so over family looking at me funny when I tell them I am going to school to become an Herbalist & studying Aromatherapy as well.

Maybe one day more people will understand that what we put into our bodies can heal us & prevent things as well, many times more than the drugs they prescribe us.

I don't preach against modern medicine bc well it is necessary many times, I just got off an antibiotic which I enhanced w/herbs, spices, teas, oils.  

I'm not going to lie when someone asks me what I'm going to school for & I'm not going to lie when asked for advice on how to help w/chest congestion or something else.

My FIL even tells me I'm becoming one of those hippie freaks, WTH!  My life, my DH is supportive and I enjoy it so that is all that matters!

I think that's awesome. They may not understand it now, but I feel like were taking a turn back towards herbalist and natural medications lately, because of such a nationwide dependency on prescription medications. I wouldn't worry too much about there opinions, stick with what you love!

Good for you for doing what you want.

How long have you been studying?

While I am happy with what I'm doing & enjoy it, being put down, laughed at, etc gets annoying after awhile.  The same old hippie comment gets old and annoying.

It is kind of like when your child has a favorite song they sing over and over again.  You are so glad they are happy & having fun but eventually you get annoyed by it.
