I get a lot of emails from people who want to learn about herbs and herbalism in a structured way, but with a flexible schedule. One of the first courses that I recommend in The Online Introductory Herbal Course offered by the Herbal Academy of New England.
The Online Introductory Herbal Course by the Herbal Academy of New England is a multimedia program consisting of six in-depth units, content-rich lessons, printable handouts and charts, herbal recipes in every unit, profiles for 50 herbs, video demonstrations, and easy access to course instructors.
This is an online, self-study program. You can start whenever you’d like and work at your own pace. The course materials will introduce you to the basics of herbalism. You’ll learn about common physical discomforts, herbal actions, dosing and herbal remedies.
After completing this course, you’ll understand why herbs work and how to make natural medicinal herbal remedies like herbal teas, tinctures, and syrups. You’ll also know how to make natural body care recipes, salves, balms, butters, scrubs, moisturizers and hair products.
