Herbal Certification Course

Learn about healing the body naturally by attending the SW Herb Shop's Herbal Certification Course. This five-week journey into the healing world of medicinal plants will be held Saturday mornings beginning Saturday, October 13, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the SW Herb Shop & Gathering Place, located in downtown Mesa.

Participants will have their senses tantalized as they explore many health-promoting herbs, feel their textures, smell their aromas, and taste their rich flavors. They will also gain an understanding of individual herbal properties; how to select herbs and make proper blends to help with various conditions; and the healing benefits of herbal remedies. In addition, attendees will examine many body systems and how herbs have been traditionally used to heal and maintain balanced health. All of this will be done using simple terminology that anyone can understand.

“If you’ve always wanted a more natural way to feel the best you can, this just might be your answer,” says SW Herb Shop co-owner Madalyn Johnson. “Take control of your health, one herb at a time!”

Cost: $555 for the entire series (includes all materials and a 300-plus page manual complete with materia medica). Location: 148 N. Center St., Mesa. For more information, contact Madalyn Johnson at 480-694-9931 or Madalyn@SWHerb.com. Also visit SWHerb.com or Store.SWHerb.com.
