Learning about herbal medicine doesn’t have to be complicated.
When I got started years ago I didn’t know where to start. And it was frustrating. I tried a few books — but something was missing.
All I wanted was someone to show me the basics so I could get started the right way… Like an “Easy Button.” I was a busy dad and had no time or money to waste on hours and hours of study.
Today there’s too much conflicting free information online, it’s overwhelming! Online courses, certifications, hundreds of books, social media… Who has time for that?
And worse yet — it’s hard to know who you can trust.
After helping tens of thousands of budding home herbalists over the last 20 years, I created the perfect place to begin.

Comfrey, Calendula, Echinacea, and Plantain. There just wasn’t any more room in Alchemy of Herbs for these amazing herbs. We felt it was only proper to provide four new and extensive chapters worthy of being printed in Alchemy of Herbs. Consider these PDFs the “lost chapters.”
