The Science & Art of Herbalism : Lesson One

These Lessons were written in response to numerous requests from students who were unable to attend my classes. Organized in much the same manner as the classes I developed and taught at the California School of Herbal Studies, the Lessons are an amalgamation of the scientific and research techniques of modern herbal studies blended with the rich folkloric heritage of herbalism. The Science and Art of Herbalism has proven an excellent, comprehensive course that teaches the foundations of herbalism.
