The Herb Academy Herbalism Courses Introductory level unit 5 covers the skin and body care.
It will save you a huge amount of money over the years as well as enable you to help your friends and family solve their skin care problems.
Skin is the largest organ in our body and these two lessons (very long lessons!) tell you everything you need to know to help solve your skin problems and make your own body and hair care products.
It's another of my favourites as I love the practical side of making the herbal products.
An introduction to skin - being the largest organ on our bodies and exposed to the elements we need to take good care of it.
This lesson covers the anatomy, the different layers and talks about skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, herpes, yeast infections, athlete’s foot and acne.
You’re given the herbs that are best for these conditions along with dosage information. Loads of information and charts as to which herb is best for which condition.
Covers body care and how to make your own products.
This lesson alone will save the price of the course over and over in your life time let alone reflecting the quality of the ingredients you’ll be able to use. Herbal bath products can cost around $20 a jar and they're mostly salts (Epsom or Sea Salt). You can make them for a fraction of the cost.
There's recipes for herbal oils, salves, balms, butters, serums, scrubs, herbal baths, cleansers, moisturisers, toners, hair care AND ten common ingredients to avoid which you will often find in commercial products.
The Bonus Section
This covers anti-ageing. It explains the mechanics of ageing and gives some clues as to what you could do to try and slow it down.
The quiz - well, as you know, you have to get 100% to go onto the next Unit, so no pressure there then! I got just one wrong which I was very pleased about, so got through on the second try.
Unit 6 is the final module of the Herb Academy Herbalism Course - the Introduction to Herbal Medicine.
It talks about the holistic approach to medicine, explaining the differences with conventional medicine and the philosophy behind it being 'whole body health'.
You will then have completed your course and earned a Certificate and will have confidence to treat yourself, your family and friends for minor ailments and improve your overall health, well being and surroundings.
