Phyllis D. Light
Herbalist


Phyllis began learning about the plants in the woodlands when she was around 10. Both her grandmother and father taught her to identify and use local plants. Her extended paternal family were wildcrafters and depended upon the wild harvesting of plants such as ginseng and pink root for cash money. Her initial training was in the traditional Southern and Appalachian Folk Medicine of the region.

It’s been a long journey from those early days. In addition to her studies in folk medicine, Phyllis has a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the University of Alabama in Huntsville and a master’s degree in health studies from the University of Alabama. She is a professional member of the American Herbalist Guild, a member of the International Herb Association and the Herb Society of America. Phyllis is also a licensed massage therapist, Reiki master and a Therapeutic Touch practitioner. She has almost 30 years of experience in private practice and was the director of herbal studies at Clayton College for almost 12 years while serving as its primary course writer.
