I have been taking this course and want to share the overview in case you're interested for yourself, a friend or even a group of friends...
Welcome to the Herbal Academy’s short course on the basics of herbal preparation, Making Herbal Preparations 101. We are so glad you are joining us for this exploration of herbal preparations! Throughout this course, we’ll take a look at everyday herbs and their preparations, such as herbal infusions and decoctions, honeys and glycerites, tinctures and liniments, and infused oils and salves.
We’ll show you how these preparations extract the benefits of herbs, as well as how to properly make, store, and use them so you can get the most from the herbs you work with. We will include herbal recipes for each of the preparations discussed in this course so you can get some hands-on experience making these preparations on your own.
Note that all of the herbal ingredients in the recipes throughout the course should be dried unless otherwise noted.
