Plants provide some of our most valuable medicine!

The World Health Organization states that more than 80% of people on earth use herbs as their primary form of medicine. Additionally, many of the pharmaceuticals we are familiar with are derived directly from plants.

Discover this important mode of healing and learn how you can incorporate herbs into your life for optimum health.


In this course, you will get a practical understanding of what herbalism is and how it works. You’ll gain skills you can use for everyday life as well as a necessary foundation if you decide to dig deeper into the exploration of herbal medicine. By the end of the course you will be able to make several different types of herbal medicine that you can use for your health and wellbeing.

Making these remedies is really quite simple. They are exceptionally effective. You will never find better quality herbal medicine than what you make yourself.

This course also covers core issues of herbalism such as safety considerations, understanding how to recognize herbal quality and the sustainability of medicinal plants. Although the primary focus of this course is how to make herbal medicines, it touches briefly on the uses of over 20 plants. For in-depth details of growing medicinal plants, plant identification in the wild, or specific remedies, check out other courses I offer to pick the particular topic that is right for you.

In addition to the course videos and materials, you will receive articles regarding important topics in using plants as medicine.

"This course is crisp and clean. It’s to the point without wasting time. Videos are easy to watch and informative. I highly recommend it to anyone with the slightest interest in Herbalism!"

"After finishing the course, I find it very inspiring and useful. It helps to see the instructor really performing the tasks - a picture (or video here) is worth a thousand words. There are many helpful details that would not even occur to me to ask about. I am immediately putting the new knowledge to practice, referring back to the lessons for details. Thank you!"

"Wonderful, I really enjoyed. Elizabeth has a lovely relaxed way of teaching. I have bought many books over the years but always became overwhelmed, the content of this course has sunk in, just the right amount of information and detail needed. It is great also that I will be able to access and revise course again - Thank You."

"Wonderful course that is taught by an experienced herbalist. This is THE place to start when you want to be a herbalist."

Hi, I’m Elizabeth Heck, herbalist, author, and best selling online instructor.

Working with plants has been a big part of my life from a very early age. My involvement with these green allies has taken me through many stages, including work as a naturalist, plant conservationist, land steward, herbal medicine formulator and founder of herbal products company.

Through it all, it is bringing the teachings of plant medicine to people that has been most fulfilling, whether it’s teaching at herbal conferences or teaching online. There is nothing I enjoy more than nurturing the human/plant connection. I’m honored to be able to share my knowledge with students across the globe with my online herbal courses selling in over 150 countries. I’m especially honored to be sharing these teachings with you.
