VIVIENNE CAMPBELL - how to use herbs simply and effectively
Vivienne Campbell BSc (Hons) qualified as an herbalist in 2003 and lives in Ireland. She teaches classes on herbal medicine, wild food foraging, and natural cosmetic-making in Ireland & the UK and teaches worldwide via her online courses and classes. She runs classes from beginners level to professional.
She is a popular speaker at international conferences and local events. She has appeared on Irish television numerous times, including a weekly foraging feature with celebrity chef Richard Corrigan. She was also interviewed for the upcoming aromatherapy documentary, Uncommon Scents: The Movie, which is currently in post-production in the USA and features natural medicine luminaries such as Robert Tisserand and Jeanne Rose.
Vivienne loves teaching people how to use herbs simply, effectively, and joyfully. She believes it is everyone’s birth-right to know how to use common local plants as nutritious wild foods and health-enhancing natural remedies. She loves to empower people to take more control of their health by sharing this knowledge and teaching these skills. She also adores introducing people to the potential of using local wild plants in professional natural cosmetics. She gave a lecture on this topic for Formula Botanica (an international organic cosmetic science school), teaches specialist classes, and on this underexplored area. She is currently writing 3 books (yes, 3!).
We will host Vivienne on the 17th of May at 20:00 CET.

In this interview for the Woman2Woman campaign we talk to Tina Logar Bauchmüller, founder and designer at Mila.Vert. After years of working in the IT industry, she has decided to follow her passion and started her sustainable fashion brand Mila.Vert. For her, the brand represents the story of empowerment, of following your passion and being kind to yourself and others. Tina believes that the only way to make fashion is in a sustainable way – that is why she has put sustainability at the heart of her work. She cares about how clothes are made. She believes in working with nature, not against it, and that all humans should be empowered by what they do for a living.
