What Will You Learn?

Taking the Herbalism for Kids Course, children aged 10+ (or younger with adult guidance) will learn all about herbs and their use in supporting the body. They’ll discover the chemicals within herbs, how to identify and make products from herbs, and which herbs to use to aid common ailments and support specific body systems.

Your child will discover what herbs are, their history, and what makes them work – learning about the chemicals inside them (called ‘active constituents’) and how to detect them. They’ll find out about the different types of products that may be found within a herbal dispensary, like dried herbs, tinctures, glycerites, ointments and syrups. They’ll also be encouraged to get out and about to search for common herbs, as they learn about the herbs that grow in each season and how to identify plants.

Your child will be provided with a good foundational knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and the factors that underpin health issues so they understand why specific herbs are chosen for particular body systems.

They’ll learn how to use herbs for coughs and sneezes, tummy aches, immune system support, skin health, cuts and grazes, helping emotions, and getting a good night’s sleep.

By studying this course, your child will:

  • Discover how herbs work and the products made from them
  • Understand how to identify herbs and their active constituents
  • Explore anatomy, physiology, and health issues
  • Learn how to use herbs to support the body and combat ailments
  • Take fun quiz assessments
  • Receive a certificate upon completion

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
