Herbology Advanced expands on the Body Systems approach to Herbs and Herbal Medicine introduced in Herbology 101.
Building on the concept of looking at plant remedies through the lens of the major body systems they affect, we now examine our herbs through the lens of chemistry.
Learn which herbs contain which plant constituents, from resins to volatile oils, to learning organic acids, alkaloids, and more.
Learn how this knowledge can be applied to formulating herbs, as well as learning solubility in terms of crafting plant medicines.
Herbology Advanced is a foundational course and part of the course requirements for the Practical Herbalist Diploma Program.
