   no I dont mean dope!!!!   

Thought I would ask you lot.

I am trying to find somewhere that offers correspondence study/distance learning on herbalism.  You know.. topics like herbs for medicine stuff and properities of herbs.

Have checked out some places and they either dont offer it, or you have to attend a on-site course as well - and they are in the South Island....

do you want a really good qualification out of it, or just an 'at home' kind of interest?

I've looked into them too, and that is the bigget pain, having to do on-site block weekends. In the N.I there is the Hamilton-based one http://www.herbalcentre.co.nz/

or if you want to go top-of-the-line http://www.herbcollege.com/faq/default.asp

otherwise go for the Stotts one - completely by correspondence

try www.wellpark.co.nz

they are a very well known holistic College up here in Ak that do fantastic courses. You will need to send them an email regarding distant courses - as they are getting this side of things underway apparently. Worth a shot. Let us know how you get on.

sounds good!! I like to learn stuff at home at my own pace - although there is a lot to be said about sharing with people as well.
But in your situation I guess it can be very difficult to get away.
All the best!!

sooo......

praps you very cleffer people, do ya wanna put up some stuff you already know???

for instance..


I know that if I burn Tea Tea oil in a room, no flies will come in.

Pennyroyal chucked in a dog kennel will deter fleas.

Aloe Vera put 'neat' on burns and stuff helps heal.

Tea Tea Oil on pimples and such like, works a treat!

Willow leaves and branches are a natural painkiller for horses.  (also helps Joey coz he has to shake his head up and down, thus exercising his neck joints from arthritis)

Have you got some pearls of wisdom WR?  and other peeps?

Put em up..... go on.....

oh, so many........ 

comfrey - excellent healer

pine needles scattered deters fleas too

honey - great if a 'patient' is sick, don't feed them, give honey and water for at least 24 hours

planting certain herbs around doorways and windows helps detract insects from the house

rosemary - burn the oil to help when studying (rosemary for remembrance) or rub some leaves between your fingers and inhale the scent

lavender - awesome healer of course

milk thistle for liver (& pancreas ? gotta check)

if you want to make a gel as a base use tapioca

aloe vera can be taken internally too, soothes intestinal tract

chamomile flowers can help skin, cuts (worked well to alleviate proud flesh on a horse)

plantain is good for worming

pumpkin seeds are good for worming

feeding carrots only for 12 or 24 hours to horses is a good wormer

  there are so many things

  awesome stuff! the only downer in that book is she doesn't cover pigs 



and there has been screeds and screeds of stuff done about honey  if I remember rightly even the egyptians used it, as they'd found pots from in the tombs which had preserved (nothing bad would grow on it). it is reckoned so far that manuka honey is the most healing.

No.....

Are they any good?  I have in my 'head' that Stotts stuff is 'second rate'..  What do you think Raven?

I was talking to my Jousting friend the other day.

She has been feeding her horses sunflower seeds... I wasnt sure why tho...

But - she has a pure white horse that is called Moon.

Since feeding the sunflower seeds Moon has started showing spots on her coat.  Apparently she is Appaloosa... well... thats what the spots are showing anyways... she has a spotted blanket type thing coming thru since the she started eating the seeds.

luffly horse name 

off the top of my head I would say the sunflower seeds are for coat - the oils in it, as well as iron.

vegetarians eat them a lot for a meat replacement booster - iron, protein.

I wonder if her hooves will toughen up too?



Stotts - I used to think that too    I started a pet care course thru them a couple of years ago, but found study hard with no support or time-out at home. Stotts have merged with some international correspondence school it says on their website. They are nzqa so I guess they are accepted. if you are only doing it for your own knowledge then it will definitely be okay.

Copper rich plants like nodding thistle applied to hooves will toughen hooves as poultice works like copper sulphate mat for hardning hooves takes longer.honey is an antiseptic.preservitive.food.and  an antioxident it doesnt do burns well but aloe and eggwhite do
