Herbal Starter Kit by Herbal Academy

The Herbal Starter Kit has everything you need to take your studies to the next level—into the kitchen!

The herbs in this kit have been carefully selected to accompany the Herbal Academy’s online herbal programs—we chose 14 herbs that we frequently discuss in our popular Introductory and Intermediate Herbal Courses and included plant mini-monographs detailing the plants’ characteristics, actions, and uses. In addition, we developed 25 herbal recipes (including some from those courses!) to inspire you to interact with each plant by making them into teas, tinctures, salves, and other herbal preparations. These easy-to-prepare recipes will give you the confidence to get started with herbs and keep learning and growing as an herbalist.
