Throughout history, the vast majority of caretakers and herbalists practiced from their homes. They did not run clinics or sell products, instead they used their herbal know-how to compassionately care for their families and themselves using plants that grew right outside their door. Like them, you, too, can unlock the power of herbs to naturally care for yourself and your family’s day-to-day concerns, from nourishment and immune support to bruises and sleeplessness.
We hope you’re ready to start mixing, blending, infusing, and crafting because the Family Herbalist Path Package features more than 250 healthy herbal recipes formulated by knowledgeable herbalists! When you complete this robust online herbalism course, you will be empowered to use herbs in safe, delicious recipes that your whole family will love, including teas, lotions, syrups, salves, and other preparations to soothe and support common conditions. You will also have a solid herbal foundation in place with a basic understanding of everything from sourcing and storing high-quality herbs to plant actions and energetics to human anatomy and herbal support for common imbalances.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will it take me to complete this course package?
All of our online herbalism courses are self-paced, which gives you the flexibility to study whenever your schedule allows. Everyone studies at a different rate, but we have found that the average completion time is approximately 95 hours for the Introductory Course and 175 hours for the Intermediate Course, which is a combined 270 hours for the Family Herbalist Path Package. Because our courses are self-paced, there are no live lectures to attend and students have access to their courses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
What materials will I need?
You will need an internet connection to access course materials along with a computer, tablet, or smartphone. You will also want to have a writing utensil and notebook to keep notes (our Materia Medica Journal is a great resource for this!). You may like to purchase herbs, oils, butters, waxes, and containers for any of the recipes that you choose to make. Both the Introductory and Intermediate Herbal Courses come with discounts to a variety of online herb suppliers to help make your studies more affordable!
Do I need to purchase textbooks for this package?
Textbooks are an optional add-on for students who also want the course material in book form. You can purchase the Introductory and Intermediate Herbal Course Textbooks separately via our Goods Shop. After you register, log in to your student account to receive significant student savings on textbook upgrades.

When can I get started?
After you purchase the course, it will be available via your Student Dashboard immediately. Simply click the “start course” button for a given course to begin your studies!
How long will I have access to the course materials?
We have found that adding an expiration date to online course access helps students stay dedicated to and focused on their studies. Much like a typical college semester, this helps set expectations and allows our teachers and staff to support and meet the needs of our students through the course forum, phone calls, and emails.

- The Intermediate Herbal Course expires 2 years after you press the “start” button in your student dashboard.

Does this package include video content?
Yes! Our courses have videos sprinkled throughout to help supplement the written material. However, videos are not the primary medium through which our courses are taught. The Family Herbalist Path Package features approximately 11 hours of video content altogether, and each video comes with a video transcript.
What kind of certificate will I receive and will I be a certified herbalist?
Upon completion of any of our foundational courses, you’ll receive a certificate of completion suitable for framing that states you’ve completed the course under the direction of the Herbal Academy. You will receive a certificate after successfully completing each individual course.
Note that because the field of herbalism is not officially regulated by any specific set of standards or governing body in the United States, certification is a tricky subject. While one can study in herbalism courses for a certificate of completion, one cannot become a “certified herbalist.” We discuss this topic in this article, which you may find helpful: https://theherbalacademy.com/can-you-really-become-a-certified-herbalist/
The practice of herbalism is protected by the first amendment right to free speech. An herbalist cannot treat, cure, diagnose, prescribe, or see patients, instead, they can educate clients about dietary and lifestyle habits and make suggestions for herbs that will help balance the body and support wellness.
Can I take this course if I don’t live in the United States?
Our classroom is truly a global classroom. We are honored to have students joining us in class from around the world. Herbal Academy courses offer a wide range of information about plants, and much of the information will be applicable outside of the United States.
Is this course available in any other languages?
No. At this time, our courses are only available in English.
