Have you ever considered going to herbal school, but you weren’t quite sure if it was right for you?
I’ve been there.
There are different schools with various teachers, viewpoints, and teaching methods. There are different paths of herbal education depending on what you want to do as an herbalist. Herbal schools vary in cost, accessibility, and the scope of education they provide.
It really is a lot to consider.
When I first became interested in herbalism, my herbal education progress mainly through self-study and online herbal course taught by experienced herbalists around specific topics. But back in 2015, I was ready for something more… something comprehensive and formal. That’s when I found the Herbal Academy and began my first formal studies as an herbalist.
During this time, I wanted to put together a blog series that followed my jouney through the Herbal Academy’s Intermediate Herbal Course.
My primary goal was to get through the course material by creating some accountability for myself, but I also wanted to share the progress with my blog readers so they could get an inside glimpse into the material in this specific course. That way, if they were considering the Herbal Academy as a potential herbal school, they would have a better idea of this specific school’s style, what they teach, and how the units are laid out within the course.
Below, I’ve pulled this series all together, in one place.
Each post focuses on reviewing one unit in the 11 unit Intermediate Herbal Course. Each post shares a bit about the unit being studied, some main takeaway points, and a remedy or recipe (shared with permission from the Herbal Academy) from that unit.
If you’re in the market for an herbal school because you want to get more of an herbal education, I hope this series of posts will help you get an indepth look at one of the Herbal Academy’s courses to see if it’s a fit for you.
They offer a wide variety of courses for herbalists from an introductory to intermediate to advanced course. You can even combine courses depending on what you want to do with your herbal education by pursuing one of their Herbal Pathway programs. They also teach Short Courses around specific topics and they have a low cost membership site called The Herbarium that you can join to learn even more about herbs and being an herbalist.

How To Save Money On Your Herbal Education
I’d highly encourage you to check the Herbal Academy out to see if they’re the right herbal school for you. Herbal school is an investment… an investment in your time, energy, and your money. But it’s an investment that will pay off in more ways than one!
Hopefully, you’ll join me in starting (or continuing) your herbal education with the Herbal Academy. I love their school so much that I’m an affiliate and I work for them now so if you do decide to go to herbal school at the Academy, I’m sure I’ll see you around!
