Excellence in Herbal Education

This school is based out of St. George, UT, and primarily does online and correspondence classes. Steven Horne is the primary instructor for the school.  The school is aimed at teaching people to be herbal consultants, that is, they have successful businesses in coaching people on how to regain and maintain their health with herbs, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle changes. We recognize that a person can be an herbalist in many ways, such as growing herbs, harvesting or gathering herbs, making herbal products, or writing and teaching about herbal medicine. We want people to master the skill of being able to sit down with a person and figure out how to use herbs to balance their body and help them return to health. Recognizing that nutrition and lifestyle are a big part of the health equation, we weave these subjects into our training programs as well. We also recognize the power of the mind and emotions in health, so we offer training in using herbs as flower essences or essential oils to balance the mind and emotions.
