Introduction to Herbal Remedies

 
 

'As an introduction, the course covered the subject really well and gave me food for thought.  Now I've had a taste I want to know more.' 2010 Introduction to Herbal Remedies Student

Nature provides a medicine cabinet full of extraordinary herbs and flowers, which form the basis for many modern medicines.  With proven therapeutic properties to help ease stress, boost health, improve skin conditions and benefit body, mind and mood. For these reasons herbs are at the heart of everything we make and do.

Still today we grow many of our herbs ourselves at our eco-factory in Peace marsh, Dorset and Sheepdrove Organic Farm in Berkshire

With this in mind, Neal's Yard Remedies has developed the Introduction to Herbal Remedies course. This course is unique in that it combines a practical approach to herbal remedies, growing and identifying herbs, whilst developing an understanding of their remedial uses.
