Founded in 2000, the Boston School of Herbal Studies offers affordable, high-quality herbal education. We are practicing herbalists passing down the time-honored tradition of herbalism, incorporating scientific knowledge with traditional practice and clinical experience.
Services provided: Herbal apprenticeships, advanced training, aromatherapy certification (two levels), ongoing evening herbal classes and medicinal plant walks.
Students in the Herbal Apprenticeships get hands-on experience making tinctures, teas, salves, oils, and flower essences and learn to identify, harvest and use medicinal plants to help heal and balance the body.
The Advanced Training Program provides instruction on how to become a clinical herbalist. The focus is on assessment techniques: facial, pulse, tongue, nails and sclera. Students practice their skills at a monthly Herbal Clinic.
The Aromatherapy Certification Course teaches students how to blend and use essential oils to heal body, mind and spirit. Students learn the essential oils most helpful for common ailments.
Healing/healthy living philosophy: We honor ancestral wisdom and are committed to ecological sustainability and ethnic/gender equality.
