This is an interactive course and you do not have to be at our physical campus to take the course. It can be done from any place with an internet connection.

WHAT IS THE ADVANCED INTERNAL HERBAL MEDICINE INTENSIVE? This is 24 contact hours of intensive materials for students to have even greater depth of training in certain specialty areas, followed by a live interaction session with instructors. These are designed for apothecarists that would like to create a product line, specialize in a certain area of herbal preparations, or to set up a home apothecary. The intensive will have advanced materials not covered in the main Internal Medicine12-week internal course.

Advanced Internal Herbal Preparations: This is a fun and collaborative course. Students will learn more complex and creative ways of making medicine — creating a bitters tasting bar by percolation method, masceration method and hot alcohol extraction method … working with fat-washing to enhance texture and flavor, creating an avante-garde herbal tea blend, discussing soxlets, spagyrics and whippets … blending herbal ‘candies’, honeyed syrups and cordials … and making an herbal decoction that will be used with a nasal atomizer.  In addition, there will be lectures on flavor as a key component in medicine making success, and medicinal ghee preparations. 

Enrolled students will receive apothecary equipment that includes a percolator and nasal atomizer, tutorials, recipes and new advanced-level resources along with an herbal care package of herbs, product materials and supplies and containers mailed to them.

Who is this for? These medicine making intensives are for anyone who wants advanced herbal medicine-making skills for home or business.  Explore potency, flavor, taste, creative passion and clinical expertise to take your medicine-making skills to a brand-new level with exciting techniques and skills.
