"To my knowledge there is no other school survival school in the nation that compares to STSC. As a student and a teacher myself I can always appreciate finding someone who actually knows something and can back it up with experience and intelligence."

Course Overview: Apothecary, Healing With Wild Plants
"Apothecary" is an ancient term for those who produce healing remedies from raw materials. In times of old, local healers would go to the apothecary to obtain the healing remedies they give to their patients. This course takes you far beyond theory and deep into the world of plant processing. We will turn natural plants, oils, waxes, and more into a wide array of healing remedies. You will make your own natural remedies and take them home at the end of the course.
*Each student will leave with several jars/packages of natural remedies they make themselves by hand on the course. Just like the ones pictured above.
During this hands on course you will:
*Learn about the active chemicals in each plant/herb we use, their effects on the body, and how to process the plant for maximum effectiveness.
*Make your own healing balm/lotion
*Make a medicinal poultice/plaster
*Make a medicinal liniment
*Brew a medicinal tea
*Make a disinfecting rinse (oral and wounds)
*Learn to harvest and "cure" wild herbs aka "wildcrafting"
This course is essential if you wish to beyond survival and learn to live off of the land...
