Course Description

A great course for either beginning to make your own medicinal plant extractions, or for strengthening your current understanding of traditional herbal medicine making techniques with science! This course takes an in-depth look at all of the most common phytochemicals found in medicinal plants, and categorizes them into their miscible solvents (the solvent(s) that they dissolve with most readily). This knowledge is designed to guide you in the art of crafting very intentional, and potent herbal extracts, and may very well expand your understanding of how plants interact with the body along the way.

Colleen Bingham Solis, a California native, began developing her first products as a young child, mixing and combining the soaps and perfumes she found in cupboards.

Always a nature enthusiast, Colleen spent most of her childhood playing in the waves at the breach or on adventures with her family touring the country's state parks in their camper.

Then, in 2010, Colleen began studying Herbalism, and instantly plugged in to a community and consciousness that reflected her love of nature and wellness. She signed up for her first herbal studies class, made her first batch of skin care products, and began her journey as a product formulator and herbalist. Colleen's knowledge of holistic health and wellness fused with her topical formulations resulting in the development of Poppy Botanicals.

Colleen is now a Certified Herbalist, instructor at The California School of Herbal Studies, contributing writer at the Herbal Academy, and herbal product developer and consultant for cosmetic companies nationwide. Herb Nerd is a culmination of her passion for her craft and her love of teaching.

Herb Nerd upholds her vision to provide a fun, interactive, and informative learning space in the fields of Herbalism and Natural Cosmetic Formulation. Our goal is to make this information accessible to every type of learner, while providing our students with the mathematic and scientific tools to convert this information into innate knowledge to last a lifetime.
