Who are NOT Herbalists

Just because you have read a few books, and have an interest in herbs, that does not make you an "Herbalist"

 

Making some great lip balm or other personal care product does not make you an "Herbalist"

 

An expert in essential oils or other MLM herbal supplement company sales rep does not make you an "Herbalist"

 

Bloggers, Products Makers and others that want to be considered experts -

"a little bit of knowledge  can be very dangerous" 

That is why education as well as self study and actual experience working with herbs is so important. The internet is a wealth of really good and some really bad dis-information. Experience guidance from a mentor.
