TEN SECTIONS TO HERBAL SAVVY: HOME HERBALIST COURSE
We are very excited to announce that the East West School of Planetary Herbology now offers a NEWLY REVISED Home Herbalist Course! It is fully accessible online and teaches basic information on herbs through written and video formats. This course is complete in itself as it incorporates a materia medica plus “virtual” herb walks that along with many detailed lessons guide you through learning herbal health and healing.
The Home Herbalist Course is founded on teaching the energy of herbs, illness and foods since this is much more efficient and effective than allopathic western herbalism (meaning one herb is good for every cold, or the same herb is used for every headache and so on). Instead, using the energy of herbs treats the person who has the illness and thus is geared toward each individual’s unique needs.
The Home Herbalist Course is both comprehensive and yet simple enough for any beginner to immediately understand. It specifically helps you jump right in to the effective methods of using herbs in a variety of ways. You’ll not only learn important herbal fundaments but also be able to make remedies that help you improve your health and/or stay healthy for decades to come.

- The beginning student interested in herbal medicine.
- Those interested in herbal medicine for the general health of one’s self and/or family.
- Someone who sells, grows or manufactures herbal and health products.
