A materia medica, or the materials of medicine, is a vital part of any herbologists arsenal and in this course you will learn how to create a materia medica for both personal and professional use.
The study of individual herbs is a core subject in any herbology course. Contemporary courses on this subject follow a superficial theoretical approach. This course encourages a practical ‘hands on’ approach called ‘plant journaling’ to acquiring a working knowledge of herbs.
This course is intended for the serious hobbyist – and for aspiring and professional herbologists – who want to use a systematic approach to acquiring a working knowledge of individual herbs.
There are no prerequisites for participation in this course. Doing Basic Botany for Herbologists, or a similar basic botany course, either before or concurrently is recommended..
