This three-year course Herbalist-Artisan at Bruges, is something I wanted to do my entire life.
Each course had its's obvious exam. Studying and working hard was therefore the message ... !
It was worth the effort, and I hereby want to thank again all my teachers.
These were the subjects that were taught:
Legislation - Cultivation Techniques - Chemistry - Biochemistry - Herbal Chemistry - Applied Chemistry - Phytochemistry.
Essential Oils - Plant drying and storage - Environmental legislation - Safety - Product knowledge.
Practicum Herbal Processing.
After the second year Herbalist a thesis was submitted in book form:
Maes, M. (2012). Gorse - Ulex europaeus L. Unpublished.
This was followed by a second thesis on Herbal fabrication, at the end of the third year apprenticeship:
Maes, M. (2013). External and internal treatment of dry mucous membranes of the nose - mouth - throat, because of medication, such as chemotherapy, or just after influenza.
Given my diploma I make remedies, extracts, tinctures, infusions and other processing methods, in accordance to the current laws, standards and regulations, by which you can be assured of receiving a safe and effective product.
I can assure you, that the plant world can help you in all sorts of health issues.
