Herbal Basics and How to Make and Use Decoctions


This is the second class in my 8 part introduction to herbalism (which you can purchase as a bundle for a lower price). It covers all of the basics like sourcing quality herbs and how to properly store them to increase shelf life. It also is the first part of covering herbal decoctions, which are my favorite herbal preparation and are under-utilized in Western Herbalism.

This audio recording of an approximately 1.5 hour live class offered in Vermont in 2016 also comes with two comprehensive PDF handouts.


This class includes:

  • a lightly edited 1 hour 37 minute long audio recording from a live class offered in 2016.
  • a 6 page PDF handout on herbal basics.
  • a 5 page PDF handout on the art of making tea.

I ask that you not share audio files with others unless you are sharing them with others who would not be able to afford the class, as I am a mama trying to earn a living. However, all PDFs have a Creative Commons License BY-SA, which means you are free to use them for personal or commercial use and can share them with whoever you wish.
