Learn about plants.

Take care of your families health.

Get a great foundation in herbal medicine.

LearningHerbs.com and The Herbal Medicine Making Kit are like herb classes that get you started making your own home remedies and herbal medicine. However, there’s more to herbalism than making tinctures and salves.

I have been designing and directing home study programs for over 10 years. I understand that a program needs to be informative, transformative, easy to understand, and not take too much time from one’s busy schedule.

I wrote the Roots and Branches Herbal Home Study course to be a simple introduction to herbal medicine. It's like taking several herb classes.

It’s enough to learn some essential basic herbal skills and know where to learn more should you choose to do so. For someone looking to empower themselves to take care of their family or their own health, it might be all they need. For the aspiring herbalist, it is an excellent beginning to a longer journey.

"Roots and Branches is colorful and inspiring. You learn a lot without having to put in a lot of time."

The “Roots” of the course give you the foundation you need as a budding herbalist or home medicine maker.

The “Branches” are regular FREE email updates with recipes (now called the HerbMentor News newsletter), remedies and skills so the education and inspiration never ends. You get to be an on-going part of our unique learning community.

This course even contains an 'Herbal Branch' on a very important herbal skill not available anywhere else on LearningHerbs.com.
