Herbal Medicine Manufacturing HERN619

During this elective you will learn how to incorporate herbs into your daily life.
So often Herbology is thought of as a medical alternative. Though it certainly offers a
marvellous system of natural healing, Herbology should not be regarded as simply a subject about disease and sickness.

Many consider herbs of value only as ingredients in potpourris, others consider herbs
primarily for their nutritional and culinary value.

During this elective we will embrace ALL of these aspects while emphasising Herbology as a powerful healing tool with health and wellbeing as its primary focus.

You will learn over ten weeks how to make up your own herbal preparations in a fun,
educative and practical manner.
