This is a 3-day on-site intensive for students to have even greater depth of training in certain specialty areas.  These are designed for apothecarists that would like to create a product line or specialize in a certain area of herbal preparations.

Internal Herbal Preparations:  This is a fun and collaborative course.  Students will get hands-on experience in making everything from herbal honeys, vinegars and gummies to experiencing a tincture tasting bar, concocting bitters, teas and tonics — all designed to be end products that apothecarists can market for purchase.  Students will go home with a customized tincture flavor syrup, an herbal honey blend, herbal oxymels, a botanical bitters formula, herbal cough drops and more.  All herbal preparations will be custom-made during the 3-day course.
