The School of Natural Healing: Family Herbalist Course
The School of Natural Healing, based in Springville, Utah, is the oldest herbal school in the country. Founded by Dr. John R. Chrostopher in 1953, this school provides an extensive herbal program allowing students to attain different levels of certification from Family Herbalist to Master Herbalist.
As a student in the Master Herbalist program with the school, I took the Family Herbalist course as a prerequisite. After finishing it, I can honestly say this is one of the best herbal courses to be found. And given that I have been studying herbs for over 30 years, I do not say that lightly!
The easy to understand format is clear and concise, yet extensively detailed to provide an herbal education that one can use to bring natural health into their life as well as their family’s.
A student is given 3 months to work through the course, which I found to be more than enough time to finish. The school does send monthly email reminders about the course completion, and is also willing to allow extensions of time, if needed. Also, as a student you receive discounts on learning products, if you need to order them, as well as on herbal products.
The cost of the correspondence course through the mail is $495. The online course is $295, a $200 savings! However, if you sign up through the link on the left sidebar of this site, you can receive another $100 discount and pay only $195.
Dr. Christopher believed every family should have an herbalist and every community a master herbalist.
This is a great opportunity if you are interested in learning more about natural healing.
Mountain Rose Herbs
As a practicing herbalist, I use and need access to high quality herbs and herbal products. If I cannot grow them or sustainably harvest local, wild herbs, I turn to Mountain Rose Herbs for my supplies.
Founded in 1987 by Rosemary Gladstar, one of the most recognized and respected herbalists living in our country today, Mountain Rose Herbs strives to provide the highest quality of organic herbs and products to it’s customers. Their list of bulk herbs is unequaled by any other herb company I have found. The quality of their products is unsurpassed, and I also like the fact that any wildcrafting of native herbs is done in a sustainable manner.
While the company is located in Oregon, and the shipping is a little high coming from the west coast, the company does offer discounts for quantity orders. Also, if you are a student of an herbal school listed on their web site, you will also receive a discount.
Unless you have the space to grow the herbs you want to use year round, and if you do, Great!…I highly recommend you try Mountain Rose Herbs for your herbal needs. Click on the banner below to reach Mountain Rose Herbs and place your order.
