Herbal Apothecary is one of Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine's primary programs. This course requires students to spend one Sunday a month (the third Sunday of each month) over the course of 10 months at Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine, starting September 16th, 2018. Classes run from 9 AM – 4:00 PM on the Sundays we have class. This course offers the herbal enthusiast an opportunity to create medicinal formulas using healing herbs and food. You will learn the practical application of herbs in the treatment of illness and common health issues. We will spend time discussing the reasons, methods and techniques used to make each product. The focus is creating healing remedies for all issues, disease symptoms and system tonics. As we use the many herbs needed to restore balance we discuss their actions and phytochemicals. This is a fun, hands-on, laboratory style program and herbal products are taken home each month to begin your own Herbal Apothecary. This training is for anyone who wants to learn about the powerful healing properties of plants, how to craft herbal medicines, how to cook healing foods, and how to identify and use the plants around us to support well-being. No prior herbal knowledge, cooking skills or medical training is required, although this course allows chefs, medical professionals, health coaches, yoga teachers and holistic healers to take their offerings to the next level. If you are interested in also taking the Foundations course that occurs on Saturdays of the same weekends, we offer a discount to combine both courses.
