Master Herbalist (Phytotherapy)

About the Level 5 Master Herbalist (Phytotherapy) Certificate

The term phytotherapy refers to the use of plant-based medications. Long predating orthodox treatments, natural and herbal remedies are the oldest form of medicine. This Level 5 phytotherapy course seeks to educate students about the innumerable benefits of alternative healthcare. Among other things, learners will discover the uses and properties of almost 900 healing herbs.

This online herbalist course will also delve into the history of herbal medicine. Students will study plants; focusing on growth, pollination and toxicity. They will also pay attention to traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda medicine and draw comparisons to more common clinical treatments. What’s more is that this online qualification offers additional modules in essential oils and aromatherapy; making it a perfect choice for nature enthusiasts.

Who should study this course?

This distance learning course is aimed at individuals with an interest in natural healing. Whether you have a personal interest in alternative medicine or you are considering beginning your journey down a new career path, this home study course will help to unlock your potential.

At Stonebridge College, we do not ask our students for previous qualifications or experience. As long as you have access to our online platform, a willingness to learn and a dedicated interest in phytotherapy, we will welcome you with open arms.

What happens after the course?

Once you have completed this course, you may choose to progress to further study. There are a number of herbal medicine courses available at universities throughout the UK. Once you have a degree in herbal medicine, you could become an independent herbal medicine practitioner.

If you want to progress directly into employment, you will now be eligible to apply for a number of related jobs. There is a large market for herbal medicine and many people are enthusiastic about tracking down unorthodox remedies. You could end up:

  • Consulting for herb product retailers
  • Acting as a nutritional consultant
  • Writing about health
