This Is How I Became A Clinical Herbalist..


I chose this school because it was 100% online, the course offerings were expansive, and their website was clean, modern and organized- unlike most programs I ran into before enrolling into The Herbal Academy. Additionally, their teachers and staff are so incredibly helpful with any questions that you have even before you are enrolled, which was great because I had a million questions. If you are looking to understand Herbalism in any shape or fashion, The Herbal Academy is the school to enroll in. It doesn't matter if you are just wanting to do this for personal use, or if you want to build a business.
