I am very pleased with this course and I am so thankful that I found this course. I searched for nearly 5 years for the perfect course for me and my schedule. I love that it was self-paced and that I can go back and reference different videos, slides and/or etc. K. Hicksonbottom 2020
Support, with this program I had it. I couldn’t believe the amazing things other students were doing with their education. It was so inspiring. The courses have so much information and content. I couldnt’ believe how much I learned. I can formulate professional herbal remedies for clients and support them.Candice 2020
This experience was truly such an inspiration. The things I loved most about the course was the wide range of references and visuals that were used as a collective curriculum. It is important as an educator to be able to have different types of references such as articles, audio clips, visual aids, cheat sheets etc. to ensure that your information is being received effectively. I am so grateful for this opportunity. A. West-Robinson
I have learned so many new things by taking this program and reading the mandatory and suggested material. My interest has grown even more after taking this course. I am excited to continue my studies and gain more knowledge in herbalism. Some of the many things I learned are- harvesting herbs such as different techniques and storage, making salves and tinctures for healing such and back and joint pain, safety in regards to herbs for people and pets, how to create and maintain a materia medica, how to create an intake form and other business information, pet care and healthy animal treats and food, aromatherapy and flower essences for adults, children, and pets. I also learned a good deal about men’s health, women’s health, and herbalism with children which I found very informative. I also enjoyed learning about common teen problems, how to help with the emotions of young adults. Learning about women’s health as we get older and how to help hormone imbalance with herbs such as Dong Quai and Black Cohosh was very useful.
My favorite part of the course is hard to choose, but I enjoyed making the decoctions. I tried a new blend almost every day. My favorite was valerian root. I have a lot of trouble sleeping at night and staying asleep and it has helped me a lot. It feels great trying new things that make me feel better. I’m excited to continue try new remedies and eventually use my skills and knowledge from this course and furthered learning to help other people besides myself. Knowing I can help people by promoting their wellness and assist in finding help for their ailments is a nice thought. I hope I can share my new knowledge with friends and family, and some day start my own business to help others.Sage 2017
I’ve gotten such an incredible amount of knowledge and information from this course. I began it almost 2 years ago after taking care of a friend of mine who had ALS. He passed away in April 2015, and we used a lot of herbs and alternative medicine to help with his palliative care.
Herbalism have been something that I’d been using in my life for many years, even before I started caring for him, and once I saw what the use of herbs had done for him through the course of his illness and his death, I was even more motivated to learn and understand about herbalism and plant medicine. Over the last two years it’s become a deep part of my own personal practice to understand how herbs can support my overall health. I take infusions on a daily basis of red raspberry, nettles, and red clover. Also as I’ve had various health issues come up over the last couple of years, anything from the common cold to endometriosis, I’ve been able to utilize the information in this course to better understand how to treat myself.
Additionally, as friends have had issues come up, they’ve come to me knowing that I was taking this course, and I was able to use the materials in addition to research that I did on my own to help formulate remedies and treatments for their health conditions. As a Reiki Master I also found the lessons that talked about the systems of the body to be extremely helpful in understanding how energy medicine works in our physical system as well. And I’ve added sections on the different systems of the body to my Reiki 1 and 2 trainings, and also cover a few aspects of flower essences, aromatherapy, and nervines in the classes as well.
I’ve been living this work deeply for the last two years which is part of why I haven’t been as active with the homework since I began the course in 2015. I was really excited to see that, when I returned to completing the questions and lessons that remains for the completion of this course, I already knew so much of this information and have been experiencing it and working with it over the course of the last two years. I’ve gained such a tremendous amount of additional respect for Mother Earth, plant medicine, and the herbalists who working daily in this tradition. I love the fact that I have access to the book and all of the coursework that I’ve completed so that I can fall back on this as I move forward in my life.Sharna 2017
I would have to truthfully say the biggest and most valuable thing I have learned from taking your program is self confidence. I have discovered that I love working with nature, and using natural alternative medicine and that I’m really kind of good at it. I would have never had the self confidence to help as many people as I have with herbal treatments if it hadn’t been for this course. Before taking this course I was learning on my own and doing my own research on herbal medicine, but there were areas that I still knew little about. This program expanded my education in those areas, such as
reflexology and flower essences. These are two subjects I knew very little about but greatly enjoyed and still practice regularly. I really love that you have a selection of courses available online, going to classes can be a challenge for many people with busy and chaotic life styles. Being allowed to learn and pass in material on your own time online is a blessing for many people, myself included. In taking this course I have become more comfortable and familiarized with herbs and their uses. I’ve also become more familiarized with different conditions and ailments than I ever have been before. Before taking this course I knew what tinctures and extracts were but I wasn’t familiar with making them. Now I’m very comfortable with herbs in the kitchen making tinctures, extracts, oils, salves, ointments, creams, rinses, etc. My medicine cabinet is finally filled with medicine that my children and I made using many plants that we have wild harvested ourselves. My husband has lower back problems that render him disabled. Since I have been practicing reflexology on him and massaging him with oils and salves I have made using plants I harvested myself I have seen some improvement in how he moves and feels. I finally got him to stop taking so many Alieve pills each day which are terrible for him by replacing them with white willow bark tablets. It’s a wonderful feeling when you know that you can help someone feel better, physically, spiritually, and or emotionally, and taking this course has given me that. Thank you!” Debby 2017
I learned a great deal about the many ways we can treat ourselves and our family. There are so many outside factors that affect us, and sometimes we need to return to the natural world to find peace and healthiness.
I am excited to grow new herbs which I hope will benefit myself and my family in our every day lives. I have since purchased and read books about herbs specific to pets to better help my family.
I learned about herbs that can treat ailments I never even would have thought to try herbs with. I am going to try many of them myself, having a wart on my finger for years and nothing seems to help. I intend to try garlic on it and see if I have any success.
I look forward to learning more as I go along; this course has given me a great basis to start my on herbal garden and treatments.Brianne 2017
Well, first I received this gorgeous book and have used it so many times to help others heal and to make your recipes. I have been able to share my knowledge with others and myself to heal. I have been surprised at the vast amount of options in the herb world. I really liked the online aspect of it, that I can do it on my own time. I have had a baby and moved 4 times during the start of this course. I have suggested this course to multiple woman and have shared with them recipes for themselves, families and pets.Iderah 2017
Heart Of Herbs Herbal School, gave me a whole new view and appreciation of herbs and the confidence to use them. I enjoyed learning from Demetria Clark , she is helpful, understanding and supportive. The students are also supportive and will help you on your journey. HOH is not just a herbal school, it’s the open door needed to making better informed choices for you and your family. It’s an experience I will never forget! I look forward to taking more classes at Heart of Herbs.Ameera
As a lover of holistic principles and someone who has studied herbs on some level for over 20+ years, I can easily say how much I love and appreciate HOH courses. I came across Heart of Herb’s site with the course listings many years ago. My formal education includes a Bachelors and a Master’s degree so when I signed up for the Master Herbalist Course I wasn’t expecting it to be that intensive since it was ‘just a correspondence course’. When I received the manual I was shock but super excited. The content of the course, assignments and the book list were so extensive and thorough that, for the price of the course, I was very thrilled that I had gotten such great information for the cost. I was, in fact, ecstatic as I knew I was going to really learn a lot and have deeper knowledge in a shorter amount of time that just self study. This is not a school you are going to ‘skate through,’ Demetria is professional and is serious about her work and requires her students to do their best and to be serious about their work as well. After I finished the Intensive Herbalist Course (HOH: MA in Herbalism) I went to do complete the Greenspirit Wisecraft Course and recently also enrolled in the Master Aromatherapy Course (which have almost completed). I continue to suggest her programs to others and am happy to be an Alumni of the school.Kelli
Since I started this course last year, I feel like I’ve gotten my life back! I am no longer on anti-anxiety medication. Instead I have formulated my own herbal “Mental Health Tea” remedy! I am also no longer taking the great big Potassium horse pills as I am able to add potassium naturally into my diet via various herbs that I’ve learned about. I have also formulated my own Menopausal Blues tea and am no longer bothered by hot flashes, night sweats, or profuse or irregular bleeding. My acne has pretty much cleared up as I am now using my own all natural, homemade skin care products. I feel like my hormones are more in balance than they were last fall and I have even lost a few pounds as a result of both using herbal remedies for the hormonal imbalance as well as eating a lot healthier. I have learned how to grow, harvest, dry, and prepare my own herbal remedies. In fact, I have my own little herbal apothecary set up now! After feeling as if I had grown stagnant in my previous career, I am once again excited about my future as I look forward to learning even more about herbs and helping other people as a Certified Herbalist. Even though I am still taking care of my 87 year old mother with dementia for which there is no cure, I feel like I have been able to incorporate some basic aromatherapy techniques in order to assist with the management of her behaviors such as agitation, confusion, etc. Although my mom does not like herbal tea, my husband who has suffered from pleurisy off and on is drinking the Pleurisy tea now as needed that I learned about in your book, and it seems to have subsided. Also, I was able to impart some of what I learned about herbs to my sister who had breast cancer, had a partial mastectomy, and went through radiation therapy this past winter. So far she is in remission. So all in all, I really can’t thank you enough for this program! I thank you, my family thanks you, and the people I will be helping in the future thank you! I hope to be continuing my studies with you by taking some other courses later on through the Heart of Herbs school.” Lori
Just wanted to share with everyone how much I enjoyed the “Master Herbalist” course MH 505. The course provided a wonderful array of different technical topics fostering knowledge depth and important awareness into the science of herbal and alternative medicine. The course material is arranged and configured as an excellent distant learning platform with careful professional instructions and assignments. When an issue arose, which was rare, support was just around corner that was answered promptly with guided accuracy.
Now that I have completed the course, I feel very confident with a new arsenal of knowledge and a tremendous feeling of accomplishment. This program will allow future building blocks to expand my education and experience into the beautiful world of herbal medicine for the rest of life.Passi
I am a Master Herbalist graduate. Demetria Clark was not only supportive in my studies, but also went above and beyond. While I was trying to register with my provincial herbalist association, I needed extra clinical work and to do a thesis. Demetria helped me to gain all the requirements I needed to gain registration.
I highly recommend Heart of Herbs school. My middle daughter who is planning to go into skin care will be doing the Herbal Skin Care for Business program!Jennifer Confalone-Pottruff
