Even better, she is there for you throughout the course to answer any of your questions. That’s incredible value!

Plants provide some of our most valuable medicine

    ·     Herbs are readily available to everyone, whether you grow, harvest or purchase them.

    ·     Herbs can be helpful for specific diseases, prevention, energy and vitality.

    ·     Herbal medicines are easy and inexpensive to make as well as easy to use.

Plants have been successfully used as medicine throughout history. Currently, the World Health Organization states that more than 80% of people on earth use herbs as their primary form of medicine.

Here is what you’ll get from the course:

    ·     Know how to make tinctures, teas, oils, salves, honeys, syrups, compresses and poultices.

    ·     A necessary foundation if you decide to move forward with an herbal career.

Why is this course not Accredited?

Nearly every online course (unless it is a large university) that claims to be accredited, actually is not. These are simply fake accreditations from real-looking websites used as a marketing scam in order to sell more courses. Elizabeth, as with any experienced herbalist, teaches with ethics and integrity and absolutely will not be deceitful for marketing sake. Rather, her students are sincerely respected and honored. Therefore none of her courses claim to be accredited.

More of what students have to say:

★★★★★ “I have always enjoyed making home remedies and seeing the effects of them on my family, and now that I’ve learned the different medicinal purposes for a few herbs and treatments here and how to use them in their proper context I can move on to helping my family feel and live better even the more. Thank you for the opportunity to learn with you Mrs Heck I enjoyed every moment of the class and felt like I was sitting in your kitchen and walking through your garden with you. For me that would be a sheer delight. Kindest regards” – Jaazer

★★★★★ "I found Elizabeth Heck to be very engaging and informative with this course. As someone who has experimented with herbal remedies, I felt that I have learned even more through her instruction. With her step-by-step demonstration on how to create different tinctures, oils, salves, etc. I have found it to be an improvement rather than stumbling around my kitchen trying to figure it out myself. I highly recommend her course and am looking forward to enrolling in more taught by Elizabeth Heck.” – Jodi C

★★★★★ "I loved this course. It really validated the interest I have in herbalism. After completing this course, I am now more than ever interested in becoming a herbalist. Thank you for this course.” – Anna S
