I have to tell you a spiritual path with herbs I wasn’t sure at first. I was afraid it would be dogmatic or preachy; it wasn’t. No religion, all spirit. I loved it.

I learned to work as an herbalist and how to nurture myself and my community. I LOVED this course. Demetria is seriously the best herbal instructor I have ever had. Kind, compassionate, and open to share. My life has transformed itself for the better.

According to the American Herbalist Guild:

The American Herbalist Guild cites a wider spectrum of salaries, potentially due to part time work. It says most herbalists make between $20,000 and $120,000 a year. This of course will depend on the herbalist’s business acumen, type of herbalism practices, where they are located, etc.. Most Clinical Herbalist charge between $60-120 an hour for consultations. Herbal product formulators can have potentially the largest salaries, as can herbal growers.

Any hidden fees?

We do not charge grading, mentoring or certification fees. We do not supply students with any herbs, containers or additional books.

Fees are clearly marked out. The course price is all inclusive. Except for the transcript and certificate fee. Students can for free get a digital copy of the certificate.

Demetria does not offer personal health advice or consult with students.

Is there a time limit?

Yes, and no. We do not use words like lifetime access, that can be confusing and potentially misleading. In the course world it means the lifetime of the course, wewant to be clearer than that.

We ask that student’s finish the courses in 1-4 years depending on the program but if the student cannot they can ask for an extension. We realize life happens and we want you to be able to complete the program once you have bought it. We also want students to be able to integrate these practices into their lives.
