The Herbs

Try at least one herb a month. Find information about the herb, taste it, make things from it, and document how it works (or didn't work). Do it like this:

Take a herb worksheet from the distance course website, or take one of the printed ones, that you got by mail.

Borrow herbals from the library or take some from your own bookshelf. Find information about the herb you chose and write things down in the theory part of the herb worksheet. Write as much or as little as you like. (The more you write, the more feedback you get. I particularly like to debunk myths in herbal cautions.)

Make things with your herb. Teas, tisanes, tinctures, syrups, vinegars, oils, salves, compresses ... whatever you like. You can also chew on the herb, the roots, the flowers, the leaves. The important part is to use the herb.

Document things in the practical part of the herb worksheet. Write down what you made, how you made it, where you got the recipe from, what part you used, dried or fresh, and so on.
Write down how they worked (or didn't work).

The herb worksheet helps organize the information. You get printed worksheets by mail, but they are also available as .pdf, OpenOffice and Word -documents.

Send the herb worksheets to me, by email. I'll add comments to them.


There is one zoom session a month, except for December and July.

I will record the sessions and put them online. (Sometimes (rarely), there will be no recording.)

You can continue to attend zoom-sessions, even after you have received your diploma.


There is a facebook group, an email discussion list and a discord group. They will all be available to you even after you got your diploma.

Distance course website

You'll find the theory booklets, the herb worksheets, and maybe other extra texts on the website.


You get a diploma when you have finished all seven parts, sent at least 21 herb worksheets, sent feedback on all seven parts, and sent in the humoral theory exercise.
