Herbalism ~ Ancient Traditions & Modern Approaches
Introduction to Herbalism / Live / 2 CEs
This section will consist of an “Introduction to the Introduction” of herbal medicine. This class will introduce the subject of herbal medicine to those who have had little to no contact with it. We will compare and contrast methods that treat symptoms versus underlying causes. Completing this class will give you a foundational understanding of what herbal medicine is, and seeks to accomplish in it’s actions.
Herbalism ~ Ancient Traditions & Modern Approaches / Live / 6 CEs
The second section will be a more comprehensive introduction to the subject of herbal medicine. You’ll learn that herbalists may use many approaches to treat conditions, by design. The purpose of this section is to define and discuss these modalities, not to provide working knowledge of them. Rounding out this discussion will be an explanation of how and why early medicine makers depended on lunar cycles to grow herbs and make reliable herbal products. Section two can be taken by itself or in combination with the other two sections.
Herbalism ~ Ancient Traditions & Modern Approaches: Tincturing / Live / 3 days*, 18 CEs
In this third section, you’ll learn the most common tincture making methods hands on. You’ll learn steps of tincture making from herb preparation to bottling. You’ll also gain beginner level knowledge on herbal terminology, and classes of herbs. The class will include a discussion of select herbs used in herbalism. You will get to take home a selection of the herbs used in the tinctures we will be making!
NOTE: We do not supply the grain alcohol necessary for you to make your own tinctures. If you wish to take tinctures that you will make in our classes home with you, you must either use glycerin for your extractions, or bring your own grain alcohol.
