What's This Course All About?

This introductory course is an expansive overview of everything you need to know about herbalism in order to confidently start utilizing it in your life (including stuff you didn't know that you didn't know)! It reviews how to use herbs safely & effectively, how to select the herbs that are right for you, how to create blended formulas, and how to save money & prepare herbal remedies correctly (i.e. how to choose solvents and calculate preparation ratios & final dosages).

It's also the foundational course from which all our other courses build upon. After completion, you can enroll in subsequent "Indication Courses" that highlight the herbs that are indicated for specific conditions applicable in your life.

Who's This Course For?

This course is for everyone, from the beginner home-herbalist who just wants to take care of friends & family, to the aspiring herbalist or complementary holistic practitioner who desires to add herbal services to their practice. How can that be? This course is part of an a-la carte "Herbal Learning System" that was designed to be customized by you! You can tailor your own learning experience by choosing the courses you want to take, when you want to take them!

For example, let's say all you want to do is know how to select and utilize herbs that are good for your family: i.e. your fibromyalgia and Lyme issues, your spouse's arthritis and digestion ailments, and your child's ADHD and insomnia...then you just take those classes next! If you're a practitioner who wants to learn how to help your clients with all those ailments and more, then you just sign up for all the courses one at a time. The prices are broken down so you won't end up paying more than if you took one larger & broader class, but this way you can focus on the conditions you specialize in first. Get the information you need without paying for any information you don't!

This is a highly informative basis for herbalism that offers a clear view through the keyhole into the vast and impressive world of herbs, their importance, usage, and all they have to offer. This course hints at the simplicity as well as the complexity of herbs and the role they play in everyday lives to maintain or restore balance the way nature intended. It truly is just a wondrous tip of the iceberg as to the invaluable benefits herbs provide.

About the Instructor

Tiffany Davies, B.Sc., Professional Herbalist

Hi! I'm Tiffany Davies, a mom of three and avid nature lover! I've been studying herbal medicine for over 27 years. It's been a passion and calling that has followed me since I was 14 years old! Perhaps it's because of my Cherokee ancestors, but I have always been drawn to the magical world of plants and love sharing its amazing gifts and powerful healing abilities with others! I hold degrees in Cellular & Molecular Biology & Health Science. I have also studied with 6 herbal "elder" mentors, many of which are co-founders or affiliates with the American Herbalist's Guild. In addition to the courses I teach to kids, teens and adults, I also operate a clinical herbalism practice and retail apothecary in Reading, PA. If you're passing through the area, stop by sometime-I'd love to take you on an herb garden tour! My dream is to reinstate the at-home apothecary and restore lost herbal wisdom into mainstream society once again. Through my classes, I hope to empower others as to how they can use the healing power of nature and the innate healing ability within themselves to achieve and maintain a healthy, active, prosperous lifestyle. In particular, I think it's essential to foster a connection to nature and an appreciation for all its healing gifts into our young ones as they grow because they are the care-takers we will leave this world to. May all your circles spin in harmony, and "Let the Healing Journey Begin!" Tiffany
