The Herbal Academy is an online learning center that teaches students how to use herbal medicine properly. With courses all the way from free introductory courses right through to advanced herbal medicine courses, the Herbal Academy has something for everyone.

Why I love the Herbal Academy

I have always loved using and growing herbs. I love everything about them, their smell, their easiness to grow, their wonderful healing properties, their beautiful look.

I have decided to start learning more about using herbs as medicine on our homestead.

To start with I learned about basic use of some simple essential oil preparations, and I used some herbs as a dietary supplement when trying to get pregnant (that worked!).

I am by no means a ‘real’ master herbalist, but I am working towards learning to use herbal preparations more in our family.

What Herbal Academy has to offer you

Herbal Academy has an amazing range of courses designed to help you at any level. Whether you are brand new to herbalism, or you have been dabbling for a while and you want to learn more, Herbal Academy has something there for you.

The three places I would suggest starting are:

Introductory Herbal Course

This self study program gives students with little or no herbal experience a glimpse into the world of herbs, kindling an enthusiasm for a lifelong course of learning.

By the end of the Introductory Herbal Course, you will understand the ways in which the herbal approach can support radiant wellness, and you will feel more comfortable AND excited about making and using your own teas, tinctures, and body care products.

Herbal Academy Course Review

If you are wanting to lean more about natural medicine, and improve your herbal knowledge these courses are ideal. I started with the Making Herbal Preparations 101 Mini Course.

Beautifully put together, and full of information that is presented in an easy to understand and intuitive to follow.

The writers and presenters of the course are clearly knowledgeable about both growing and using medicinal herbs and making herbal products, and are clearly professional herbal practitioners.

I learned how to make an effective herbal tincture, herbal tea, using both dried herbs and fresh herbs and well as some spices.

It covers some common herbal remedies and it was a wonderful introduction to my herbal studies.

In this course, I learned about basic herbal preparations-what they are, why they work the way that they do, when to use them, and of course, how to make them.

The program covers four categories of herbal preparations, from water- and sweet-based preparations to alcohol- and oil-based preparations.

There were detailed, step-by-step video tutorials for each of these common preparations for everyday use.

I came out of the course with 33 recipes using the herbs and preparations.

If you are a budding herbalist, this mini course is a super affordable herbalist course to get started with.
