Yes, another blog. But unlike my other two this one will be strictly dedicated to my journey to becoming an herbalist. When I can, I will post photos of my projects and their progress.

I just received my first course in the mail yesterday. I'm taking the First Course in Medicinal Herbalism through naimh.com. I was totally surprised by all the herbs included in the resource kit. It has 15 different herbs in it!
I went out and picked up some of the not included supplies such as Everclear. The only type I could get was 190 proof! I'm to use it to make 3 tinctures. I am nervous and scared I'm going to mess it all up. There's no room for error since there's only one set of herbs for each tincture.
I will start reading the lesson tomorrow, send off my registration form and fee, and begin working on the projects later in the week.
I will try to take some pictures tomorrow as well, if the batteries in my camera aren't dead.
