June came and went with a flash!
In recipe news, I didn’t meet my goal of 6 recipes, but I did make a few. Mostly desserts. I did get to post another original recipe, you can check that out here if you missed it.
However, this isn’t a recipe update. It’s an herbal update!
During the month of June, I worked on the Mircobiology unit. This unit was interested and I enjoyed that the supplied supplementary “textbook” was current. It even had information on COVID-19! After completing that unit, I moved onto the Pharmacognosy and Phytotherapy unit. This has a few different lessons in the module and many videos and resources, so I will be focusing on this one for the month of July.
I anticipate beginning the Master Herbalist Program sometime in September. This is where my speed will slow a bit and my focus will shift to including more time to study. Eventually, I will have to make remedies and experiment with different herbs, which will be exciting! This course is it’s own separate course that has a length list of requirements that must be met in order to complete the course. At last look, I think there was around 2 dozen different things that had to be completed in order to earn the certificate.
Once I begin this course of the program, I am planning to do an herbal update every two weeks. This will help me stay focused and make sure I am dedicating enough time to my herbal studies. But for now, back to Pharmacognosy.
By the way, if someone who reads this can tell me how to PRONOUCE “Pharmacognosy,” I’d appreciate it. Thanks!
