The At Home Apothecary
The at Home Apothecary is the place to be if you're looking to start your own herbal healing journey. Here you'll learn about a variety of different medicinal herbs and how to make them into remedies of your very own. While this course centers around medicine making, we also discuss best foraging use, and essential oil safety so you can feel confident crafting your own practice. We also provide you with over a dozen easy recipes to help you incorporate a practice into your daily routine and diet.
While this course is perfect for beginners and those just getting into herbal wellness, completing this course does not result in a certificate and is not enough of an education to begin a career in herbalism.
