(This is similar to 201, 201A, 201B and 201C of the Master Herbalist Course). The goal of this unit is to educate the student about various herbs and how to make herbal preparations from these herbs. Towards this goal the student is also educated in the history of herbal preparations. In addition, alchemy is introduced, not for purposes of usage, but as a historical unit. Herbal preparations are taught through the making of tinctures, teas, salves and other common preparations.
