This unique course is based on practical application. You will learn how to create your own ointment, arthritis and healing creams, hair conditioner and much more, using safe, natural products. These are time-honoured skills that will assist you in caring for yourself, your family and your friends. The Modules: There are 12 modules altogether. There is no requirement that you do them all, but skills tend to be developmental, so it is suggested they are done in order. Each module concentrates on a different herb and a different process or project. It includes any difficult-to-procure ingredients. Modules include a range or references and the names of places to source raw materials. You are encouraged to grow the herbs, and collect them in the wild where practicable. How long a module takes to complete is up to you. The emphases are on awareness and skill development. Written answers are expected to be brief and to the point as they are to ensure you have a clear understanding of specific points. On completion of each unit, any such answers and a sample of your practical project will need to be sent for evaluation to: Total Health and Education Centre Feedback will be given on your completed work. Any questions you have relating to your projects and the herbs being studied will be answered as soon as possible. We look forward to a close and beneficial association with you, and wish you much pleasure and success in your studies. Pat Collins, Herbalist This Course is printed for educational purposes only.
