Where do I go for more information on Herbal Study?
First, let me explain that I am a certified Aromatherapist. I also studied herbalism, body care and
nutrition. I completed my studies at the Australasian College of Herbal Studies located in Oregon.
ACHS is an excellent school giving "one on one" tutoring, but I realize not everyone can afford to pay
the fees that it costs to become certifiied. Even though ACHS offers several payment options you might
first want to gather more facts and information about herbs and essential oils before you decide to take
a course. |
Here are a couple alternative options. The Herbal Healer Academy offers cIasses
in herbalism also, but offer other classes that ACHS does not include, including massage therapy, acupressure,
reflexology and several others. Both schools have many good books and videos available to you in the
areas of herbal study. They both also carry supplies for the herbal healer.
I have included
both links (above and on my links page.) Check their sites out to see what each one offers.
you are interested in oils for personal use, a third alternative is Dr. Young's Living Oils, (which
is a "MLM") that gives you a lot of useful information. It doesn't cost anything to join. You become
a member with your first order. They carry aromatherapy oils, herbal supplements and herbal hair and
body products. I was first introduced to Dr. Young's living essential oils in 1996 while working at
"Healing Hands," located in Riverside, Ca. This is an excellent way to introduce yourself to herbs,
oils, their properties and what they can do. They also have an herbal hotline you can call for recommendations
of proper oils for specific ailments.
I have now added a page where you can purchase herbal, nutritional,
Specialty supplements and Beauty aides directly from my website through an affiliate program with "MotherNature's
Herbs". "B&B" carries a fine line of Beauty Products. There is also a web page added for herbs and
supplies for "your pets." (Click on the "Highlighted text" to go to these pages.)
the many of you who have been asking for a personal page I have added one. (Yes, I have included a
couple of photo's)
One final note, certification in either Aromatherapy or Herbalism is a very
complex and lengthy study. Whatever path you chose it is a course that, I believe, is one that never
ends. You can take a course to learn the basics, or complete intensive courses for certification. Eiither
way it takes at least a year to get an idea of what the various herbs and oils are and what you can actually
do (and can't do) with them. Even though you get a lot from the class text, you gain your real knowledge
once you start using herbs and aromatherapies and see for yourself the miracles that take place, almost
immediately upon use.
Your interest? Be it herbs, Aromatherapies, Natural Therapies, Health,
Beauty or overall wellness for yourself and your family and pets, these pages are intended to help you
with your search for information, education, supplies, and products for the professional or for your
I use aromatherapy and herbs every day. (I use Eastern, Western and Native
American herbs.) I use them for my skin, hair, carpet deodorizer, room freshner, flea-dips.... the many
uses are endless. Everyone can benefit from herbs and aromatherapy. It will benefit you the rest of
